Transition to IP your way
The analog to IP technology shift
Analog cameras have long dominated the video surveillance market. Now IP technology advancements have caused a
shift away from all-inclusive analog solutions. To maximize the efficiency and quality of their surveillance, many
customers recognize the need to transition their analog installation to digital to gain advantages in image quality,
remote accessibilities and improved scalability.
Fully-integrated IP solutions open up many new opportunities including:
Ability to add high-resolution, megapixel cameras for superior image quality and improved evidence
On-the-go remote access to video for faster response times
Seamless control of external systems such as alarms, building systems and points-of-sale
Flexible scalability and the ability to upgrade IP cameras one at a time
Sharing a common video management software (VMS) platform to perform camera controls, video search and
input/output commands
• Optimizing video storage on redundant servers or in separate locations to increase reliability and
safeguard evidence
• Creating more intelligent surveillance with the integration of video analytics and alarm handling
• Faster and simplified set up with installation wizards built into VMS and the removal of cabling
Transition to IP your way
The benefits of IP are obvious, but the path to digital may seem complicated and costly. With Milestone Husky, there are
multiple ways to effortlessly and cost-efficiently move from a closed system to a fully integrated IP system. Leading the
industry forward is the state-of-the-art Milestone Husky Hybrid Network Video Recorders (NVRs).
