Milestone Systems starts shipping a new series of high-performing Husky Network Video Recorders
Copenhagen, December 11, 2018.The Milestone Husky X series is designed to unlock the full potential of Milestone’s XProtect video management software (VMS), offering remarkable performance and low total cost of ownership. All NVRs in the Milestone Husky X series utilize hardware accelerated video decoding for server-side motion detection to further increase performance and camera capacity – all that in hardware that is customizable and can be matched to specific functional, operational and budgetary requirements.
Built to perform
The Milestone Husky X8 is a high-performing network video recorder for the high-end market, offering remarkable performance and reliability with component, storage and application redundancy, ensuring continuous uninterrupted operation. Leveraging the XProtect video management software, hardware-accelerated video processing and Western Digital Purple™ HDD technology, the unit offers a proven capacity of more than 300 cameras with server-side motion detection.
"Scalability and reliability are two of the main criteria selecting hardware infrastructure for a security system. The Husky X2 and X8 units deliver on both these points through their dedicated design and high build quality. And thanks to the use of hardware-accelerated video decoding the Husky X series NVRs offer the market’s highest performance, reducing both the initial and operational costs,” says CTO Bjørn Skou Eilertsen, Milestone Systems, who continues:
"The new Husky X series is an important complement to our ambitious System Builder program where we work with some of the market’s leading and most-recognized hardware vendors to offer servers, storage and workstations pre-installed with Milestone XProtect VMS software.”
With higher performance, greater flexibility and scalability, the new Husky X series will replace Milestone Systems’ existing Husky M series of NVRs. By June 30, 2019, after five successful years in the market, Milestone Systems will terminate the production of Husky M series. This includes Husky M20, Husky M50, Husky M500 Advanced and Husky M550 Advanced.
