Milestone Husky NVRs answer market’s need  for more storage
Milestone Husky NVRs answer market’s need for more storage

Milestone Systems, the open platform company in IP video management software (VMS), announces upgrades to its series of Milestone Husky network video recorders (NVRs). The sleek video network appliances integrated with Milestone video management software now offer significant increases in internal storage. Popular NVR Series Meet Market Demands The storage expansions mean simple-to-install video surveillance solutions are available for more demanding requirements – longer video retention and greater quality recordings. More storage enables customers like government organisations to meet 90-day video storage requirements or casinos to achieve continuous high-resolution recordings. 2x the storage on the Milestone Husky M10 – up to 2TB (from 1TB) 3x the storage on the Milestone Husky M30 – up to 12TB (from 4TB) 2x the storage on the Milestone Husky M50 – up to 48TB (from 24TB) Additionally, the Milestone Husky Hybrid Series of NVRs will get a boost in storage too. The hybrid NVRs, which enables users to mix of analog and IP cameras for an easy analog-to-IP transition, offers the following options: 2x the storage on the Milestone Husky M30 Hybrid – up to 8TB (from 4TB) 2x the storage on the Milestone Husky M50 Hybrid – up to 32TB (from 16TB) Unlimited scalability through Milestone Interconnect Like other Milestone VMS solutions, Milestone Husky solutions are future-proof, enabling users to scale up their video surveillance deployments as their businesses grow. Multiple Milestone Husky M30s or Milestone Husky M50s can be set up with a master/slave configuration. Users can view video from all connected cameras on the networked Milestone Husky units by simply connecting to the master server. For enterprise scaling, all Milestone Husky NVRs can also use Milestone Interconnect™ to connect remote sites to XProtect® Corporate VMS for central command and control. This enables a site with a Milestone Husky NVR to be operated locally or remotely, which either could be through a central control center or by a service provided from a Milestone Partner. The functionality of the Milestone Husky M30 and Milestone Husky M50 models can be extended by integrating XProtect® add-ons and third-party integrations, such as access control and video analytics. “We recognised the shift in the market for integrated NVR solutions,” said Jay Shah, Global Business Development Director, Incubation and Ventures at Milestone Systems. “Our Milestone partners and customers asked us for more storage with the Milestone Husky Series and we delivered. Now they can integrate and interconnect the NVRs in more demanding environments. This change can only open up new opportunities for our end users and our integrators.”
