The Husky™ M500 Advanced is an all-in-one NVR hardware platform with scalable software. This is Milestone’s most versatile, capable recording platform yet, and the highest performing NVR on the market amongst 2U Rack Windows-based NVRs.

Rapidly deployed, future-friendly, built to expand

“There is a growing demand in the market for large video business systems that can be implemented rapidly, have the capacity for future expansion and are highly reliable. In the Husky M500 Advanced, we have built an NVR hardware platform specifically to meet this demand: We have designed and optimized the network, compute, video management and storage systems to work together,” says Keven Marier, Director of Large Account Business Development at Milestone Systems.

A versatile solution with flexible software

The Husky M500 Advanced is a modular NVR unit that can fit into virtually any surveillance set-up, be it as a single, all-in-one NVR installation, in large sites with multiple NVRs and centralized management, in complex solutions with recording and management system failover or in globally distributed operations with federated or interconnected sites.

With the scalable software, you can do more: The Husky M500 Advanced comes with flexible licensing of either XProtect Expert or XProtect Corporate software and hardware-optimized advanced VMS functions. You can even extend video storage by archiving to third party NAS storage units.

Investment-wise, the Husky M500 Advanced offers an industry leading price-performance ratio: Software license portability lowers license administration and management costs, free upgrades to current Milestone XProtect Software and the 3-year hardware warranty and Milestone Care™ Plus inclusion makes this a safe, future-proof bet that returns its own investment in no time.  

Ideal for migrating from analog to IP

“The Husky M500 Advanced is an excellent choice for customers looking to migrate from analog installations to IP-based surveillance systems. It’s also the perfect choice for existing XProtect Enterprise customers who are looking to upgrade and future-proof their surveillance system. It is perfect for organizations in the retail, education and banking sectors. The hardware recording platform’s versatility and scalable software make it well suited for distributed installations with geographically dispersed sites, such as school districts, university campuses, bank branches and retail chains,” Marier says.
