Livermore, Calif.-based Darim Vision, a maker of tough, wearable IP surveillance tools, is integrating its Darim PVE400 system with software from Denmark-based Milestone Systems to provide, the companies say, unique surveillance capabilities.

The PVE400 is now supported by Milestone XProtect Basis+, Professional and Enterprise products, bringing powerful point-of-view visual, audio and management to demanding surveillance environments.
Users of the PVE400 can now use the Milestone graphical user interface to control multiple cameras. On the camera side, the PVE400 is a unique portable/wearable video encoder and streamer that can withstand harsh operating environments (IP-65 rated). Users can easily connect a Bullet-Cam, FLIR thermal imaging camera, or any composite video source for real-time A/V compression and network streaming.
Supported network streaming protocols include 10/100 Ethernet, 802.11b/g and wireless MESH. The PVE400 also sports internal Flash Memory for local “black-box” storage and a GPS module with Google Earth integration, allowing a command center to view, control and track multiple PVE400s.
“Milestone is a proven market leader for IP video surveillance management software,” said Aaron Taylor, director of Sales and Marketing for Darim Vision. “As a supplier of a unique yet powerful situational awareness visual tool, which has quietly been enabling tactical operations and industrial inspection within harsh environments, we are pleased to cooperate with a company that has such excellent market acceptance and reputation. This integration will mark the beginning of a new era of dynamic video surveillance which will expand the imaginations of everyone within this rapidly evolving industry.”
The Milestone open platform supports over 700 cameras in all shapes and forms, but we believe that Darim’s wearable cameras are a very strong addition for the marketplace,” said Henrik Friborg, co-founder and vice president for Strategic Alliances at Milestone Systems. “They are unique for their portability and will be of particular interest for such demanding customers as the military, law enforcement and other first responders,”
Darim and Milestone will be demonstrating the PVE400 and XProtect at ASIS2009 in Anaheim, Calif., Sept. 21-24.
