Network Video Recorder (NVR)
NVR's are split in to two categories which are VMS software and Recording Server.
Milestone Systems XProtect VMS
The VMS software DigitalSi promotes is called XProtect by Milestone Systems. Milestone Systems is the world’s leading provider of open platform IP video management software (VMS) and its XProtect VMS is used by more than 100,000 customers worldwide.XProtect is easy to use, yet powerful software that is designed with open architecture.This means that all XProtect products are compatible with more IP cameras, encoders and digital video recorders than any other VMS manufacturer, giving you the freedom to mix and match hardware to fit your needs and budget.Because XProtect is based on a true open platform, you have the ability to integrate with today’s best analytics and business solutions and to expand what is possible with future innovations. Whether your installation is just a few cameras or several thousand, there is an XProtect product to meet your needs.
Transitioning from Analogue to IP
Now Milestone makes it even easier for users to begin or continue their transition to IP because they have changed the license implementation so only one hardware device license is needed for each analog to IP encoder, regardless of the number of analog cameras connected to the encoder. If the encoder has several IP addresses, it will need one license per IP address. The new licensing concept will be in effect from May 21, 2014 and applies to all 2014 releases of XProtect video management software. XProtect is compatible with more than 200 encoders, from over 50 different manufactures, enabling customers to select encoders that are applicable to their requirements and budget. Therefore allowing a low-risk approach of transitioning to IP, since existing analog video infrastructure runs parallel to IP technology and the installation can scale as needed.
DigitalSi can supply a recording server to suit your project design and budget. From low cost desk mount mini servers to rack mountable servers with and without in-built Smartclient as well as high-end mission critical raid servers such as the Promise Technology A2000 series which are certified by Milestone Systems. The Vess A2000 Series is built to be the best video surveillance storage solution on the market. Delivering reliable and stable performance for surveillance video recording, especially when the arrays is in a critical state or during rebuild which is key to eliminating frame dropping, the Vess A2000 Series is ideal for installations of up to and over a hundred full-HD IP cameras, making it perfect for banking, retail, gaming, manufacturing, and many more industries.
