|The Milestone Husky appliances featuring automatic device discovery with wizards for configuring the entire system
Milestone Systems, the open platform company in IP video management software (VMS), announces extended availability for the Milestone Husky Series of network video recorder (NVR) appliances. These NVR appliances – pre-installed with Milestone’s XProtect® video management software (VMS) – will be available in 2014 Q2 in Europe, Middle East and Africa, and in Q3 for Asia and Pacific regions.
The Milestone Husky Series of NVRs has already been introduced in the U.S. and Canada, with the Milestone Husky™ M50 model being available first. Due to the demand, a staged roll-out plan has been put in action. The entire line of models is now available in the U.S. and Canada and will be showcased at the ISC West show in April.
Based on appearances alone, the Milestone Husky NVRs are different from others in the market. The appliances are sleek and sophisticated – designed to fit any environment, even on a small retail shop’s shelf! Ensuring reliability and durability, the hardware is industrial-grade and works seamlessly with Milestone XProtect. Yet, it is the flexibility of the Milestone Husky Series is what makes the solutions stand out.
"We have redefined the NVR concept by providing our customers with embedded surveillance solutions that are customisable and scalable," says Lars Nordenlund, VP of Incubation and Ventures at Milestone Systems. "Milestone Husky has already had tremendous response in the market because the series makes it so easy to customise a solution that meets their specific needs – from a single location flower shop to multi-site installations. Milestone Husky offers simple solutions with more than 50 preconfigured options."
Milestone Husky is available in three models designed for different security or business video requirements:
• The Milestone Husky M10 is a very sleek and small fanless device ideal for entry-level surveillance and sites with no space for traditional IT equipment. The model supports up to 8 cameras.
• The Milestone Husky M30 Designed for workstation installations with comprehensive surveillance needs. Customisable and scalable for business growth, the model supports up to 20 cameras.
• The Milestone Husky M50 is a rack-mounted solution, feature-rich with unlimited options, and perfect for advanced installations with sophisticated security needs. The model supports up to 80 cameras.
"Milestone Husky offers simple solutions with more than 50 preconfigured options"
The Milestone Husky appliances are ready to use, featuring automatic device discovery with wizards for configuring the entire system, and the device license keys are pre-activated.
Customers get instant and remote access to live and recorded video through a flexible choice of client interfaces: Milestone XProtect® Smart Client (available with the Milestone Husky M30 and M50 models), XProtect® Web Client or Milestone Mobile – all available in 27 languages.
The Milestone Husky M30 and M50 will not only be offered in preconfigured versions, Milestone also offers an online configurator that makes it simple for customers and partners to explore their options.
The Milestone open platform supports more than 3,000 camera models from over 100 manufacturers, as well as compatibility with ONVIF and PSIA compliant devices. Third-party integrations with video analytics and access control add even more value when using the Milestone M30 and M50 models.
Milestone customers are not the only ones who can benefit from the Milestone Husky solutions. "I believe that
Milestone Husky is a tremendous opportunity for Milestone partners as well, since these appliances enable them to focus 100% on their customers’ business needs and not worry about the technology behind the solution," states Nordenlund.
Milestone Husky will be on display at ISC West in Las Vegas 2-4 April (Milestone booth 20060), IFSEC London 17-19 June and other occasions throughout the U.S., Canada and EMEA in the near future.
