Milestone Releases New NVR Hardware Platform With Scalable VMS

Milestone says the Husky X Series NVRs can support up to 700+ cameras due to optimized hardware acceleration.

COPENHAGEN — Milestone Systems reveals the Milestone Husky X2 and X8 NVR hardware platform with scalable VMS.

The company says the Milestone Husky X-Series NVRs can act as scalable high-performance building blocks for businesses designing small or very large video solutions.

The X-Series NVRs are said to achieve high performance thanks to hardware acceleration where system performance can be boosted just by having the graphics processor taking over the heavy lifting in decoding video, leaving room for the system to handle other tasks.

Because the X-Series is based on industry standard hardware and software, the NVRs are easy to keep hardened in a cybersecurity context, according to the company.

Two models will be available when the NVRs ship in fourth quarter of 2018:

  • Milestone Husky X2 – featuring two hot-swappable hard disks and integrated PoE+ switch. Supports up to 133 cameras (720P @ 25 FPS, 2Mbit/s).
  • Milestone Husky X8 – featuring eight hot-swappable hard disks and dual 10 Gbit/s network interfaces. The internal storage can be expanded with external storage arrays connected via high speed fiber channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and iSCSI connections. Husky X8 supports up to 780 cameras (720P @ 25 FPS, 2Mbit/s) with a maximum recording rate of 1.828 Mbit/s. Includes a 4 core Intel Iris Pro CPU (Graphics Processing Unit) facilitating hardware acceleration and a server grade motherboard design.

Both units are preloaded with Milestone XProtect VMS and support all current versions of Milestones VMS.
