New high-performance Husky NVRs

February 2019 CCTV, Surveillance & Remote Monitoring, Products

The Milestone Husky X series is designed to unlock the full potential of Milestone’s XProtect video management software (VMS), offering performance and low total cost of ownership. All NVRs in the Husky X series use hardware accelerated video decoding for server-side motion detection to further increase performance and camera capacity – all that in hardware that is customisable and can be matched to specific functional, operational and budgetary requirements.

The Milestone Husky X2 is a plug-n-play network video recorder with a built-in PoE switch and input/output panel. With a verified continuous recording rate, it provides the power and scalability required in most small to mid-market surveillance installations. The Husky X2 comes with pre-loaded XProtect Essential+ VMS, allowing everyone to start right and be able to scale up their licence according to need.

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.
