Genetec and Milestone 500 Camera Recorders Announced

Author: Ethan Ace, Published on Apr 05, 2016

The megaserver era has arrived?

VMS manufacturers Genetec and Milestone have both announced new hardware claiming support for 500 cameras or more, huge increases over past claims.

But the question is: can servers really handle real world throughput for these high camera counts? And is there really any market demand for it?

In this note we take a look at the announcement from both manufacturers, the logistics of bandwidth vs. camera count and other issues, and how these recorders may impact the surveillance market.
