Milestone Systems has built an open platform for vision-based technology software working with applications that create benefits across areas such as security, transportation, emergency response, traffic optimisation and even in wildlife. The Milestone Community Kickstarter Contest is a unique opportunity for coders, developers, individuals and organisations to discover new applications and capabilities that that can “plug in” to the XProtect® VMS product family.
The competition has a first prize of USD$65,000, and will be announced at Milestone's annual MIPS event. Three finalists will be given free entry to the event to demonstrate their innovations.
The winning concept can be an integration, added functionality, widget or code that extends the use of VMS in any useful capacity. Participating developers can create a visual tool, a device trigger, a base for analysing data or to measure information that can be applied in new ways.
The two requirements are that the solution is integrated with the Milestone XProtect VMS, (and possibly using the MIP SDK), and that the idea must be the contestant’s own intellectual property.
“Milestone Systems enables an open platform community that drives collaboration and innovation in the development and use of network video technology,” says Bjørn Skou Eilertsen, Chief Technology Officer at Milestone. “We believe that developers will change the world. Our MIP SDK can help them do this. It offers developers the opportunity to innovate new solutions and use our powerful VMS platform as the engine.”
Innovators may post questions about integration challenges on the Milestone Developer Forum.
