Forced to hold its MIPS 2021 conference virtually, Milestone Systems invited systems integrators and other stakeholders from across the Americas to explore how video technology is transforming business and society, as well as illustrating why video management systems will provide the foundation to this change.

Held March 2-3, the free event featured presentations and keynotes from Milestone Systems executives and global innovation experts, along with the success stories and industry insights from partners. Milestone CEO Thomas Jensen discussed how video technology has moved beyond security and eluded to coming changes to the company’s partner program.

Milestone CTO Bjørn Skou Eilertsen and CSMO Kenneth Hune Petersen delved into mega trends, accelerated technology adoption in key industries, and why Milestone Systems believes that video technology is the “electricity of the 21st century.”

All MIPS 2021 programming from both days can be viewed for free on-demand here through April 4.
