High performance network video recorder preview
Milestone is previewing its latest network video recorder offering high performance connecting up to 512 cameras with inbuilt licence portability.
Milestone Systems has announced its preview demonstrations at trade shows of the Milestone Husky M500A Network Video Recorder (NVR) platform, which is due for release during the second quarter of this year.
Performance tested to support 512 HD cameras with a guaranteed recording performance of 600Mb/s, the M500A XProtect Expert NVR builds on the hardware design of the Husky M50 chassis and uses Western Digital Purple hard drives, which have been specifically designed for video surveillance and make use of write-optimised hard disk drive technology and frame loss protection.
With the use of an optimised RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) Controller to support either RAID 5 or RAID 10, the industry’s highest performance NVR in its hardware class is achieved and can support up to 48TB of internal raw storage and has the ability to archive to network-attached storage appliances when additional storage is required.
The NVR also comes with Milestone XProtect Expert video management software (VMS) already installed. It is also supplied only as a base configuration so that camera licences just need to be added as required.
The latest NVR from Milestone Systems offers a number of key advantages:
Recorder or All-in-One: The Husky M500A can be deployed as part of a larger video management software installation or as a stand-alone system, providing the best scope for deployment options.
Federated NVR Support: The Husky M500A XProtect Expert NVR can be easily Federated into existing XProtect Corporate customer deployments at no additional cost. This provides seamless management, configuration, control and viewing of camera devices.
Licence portability: XProtect Expert 2016 licences can be moved between systems just by clicking in the Milestone management console. This enables a customer to have a pool of camera licences and use them as needed.
Recorder Failover: When using the newest version of XProtect Expert 2016, the M500A can use the built-in recorder failover capability. This enables the M500A to fail over to a central XProtect Expert system or another M500A if the system is hit by an unforeseen outage. This takes place automatically, without any interruption in system security level.
Simplified Installation and Setup: The Husky Configurator automates the hardware and software setup and system restore image, saving valuable installation and setup time.
Commenting on the release of the new NVR later this year, Milestone’s VP of corporate products, Bjørn Skou Eilertsen said, “The industry’s highest NVR performance is delivered by the most scalable and reliable VMS all packed into our optimised NVR at the lowest cost per recorded device. It does not get better than this!”
The first chance to see the new Husky M500A NVR will be at ISC West taking place from April 6th to 8th in Las Vegas.
