Milestone Systems Husky M50 NVR/encoder

COPENHAGEN — Milestone Systems, best known for its control and management software for surveillance systems, announced a way to ease the transition from analog to digital surveillance technology. If your facility already has working analog security cameras, there is no need to replace them as you add new network devices to your surveillance system.

The Milestone Husky series of NVRs now offer versions with integrated encoders that make it simple to connect analog and digital cameras, which run on IP networks, to the same box. Milestone Husky Hybrid NVRs are preinstalled with Milestone VMS, and let end users build on their initial investment. End users can connect existing analog cameras and add IP cameras over time for better evidence-quality video and surveillance features.

The Milestone Husky Hybrid NVRs are aligned with the new Milestone encoder licensing. In this, only one hardware device license is needed for each analog-to-IP encoder, regardless of the number of analog cameras connected to the encoder. This applies to encoders with no more than one IP license. The Husky series also supports the Milestone encoder licensing when external encoders are used on the NVRs. End users can choose from more than 200 encoders.

At launch, two configurations of Milestone Husky Hybrid NVRs will be pre-installed with XProtect 2014:

  • Milestone Husky M30 Hybrid with 16 analog channels + 4 IP devices
    4 TB storage / 8 GB RAM / i5 processor
  • Milestone Husky M50 Hybrid with 32 analog channels + 16 IP devices
    16 TB storage / 16 GB RAM / i7 processor

General availability is fall 2014 in the U.S., Europe and the Middle East.

The CCTV security segment steadily is going digital in large part because of the advent of Internet protocol megapixel and HD-CCTV (also known as HD-SDI) technology; but that has led to an ongoing spirited debate over which is better.
