CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif., April 1, 2014
Shuttle Computer Group, Inc., one of the world’s leading designers of small form computers, and Milestone Systems, global leader in open platform IP video management software, have announced two complete security solutions with an Internet-based licensing process unlike any other in the security industry. The new Shuttle SZ87MIS04 and DS81MIS04 will be showcased in Booth #21128 at the International Security Expo (ISC) West in Las Vegas, April 2-4, 2014.
Shuttle Computer’s new IP video management security solutions come complete with Milestone Arcus software already embedded, making it easy to establish a secure perimeter quickly and easily, with plug-and-play simplicity.
“With our new SZ87MIS04 and DS81MIS04 appliances, you can quickly configure and install a four-camera security system for a customer and scale it up easily when they’re ready to expand,” said Marty Lash, director, sales and marketing, Shuttle Computer Group, Inc.
The Shuttle appliances come in two form factors using Shuttle’s SZ87R6 CubePC and DS81 SlimPC. Both configurations ship with four cameras and attendant licenses and provide up to 2TB of storage. The Shuttle appliances can support 100+ cameras, so Shuttle and Milestone also created an Internet-based camera license purchase system with seamless and instant online purchasing.
Lash added, “Obtaining and registering new camera licenses has been a very cumbersome process in the past and usually took some time. Our new camera licensing website lets you go through that process in just a few clicks and licenses are registered instantaneously.”
“I have been impressed by the performance of Shuttle’s Small Form Factor PCs, proving that the Milestone Arcus embedded DS81 and Cube SZ87R6 will be a favorable offer for the high megapixel, plug-and-play video surveillance installation. The instant online payment process to add more camera licenses will be very easy to operate for the sales channel and end users,” said Lars Nordenlund Friis, vice president, Incubation and Ventures at Milestone Systems. “Furthermore, I’m very excited that we are able to extend the Milestone ecosystem and routes to market by empowering Shuttle to offer this combined solution to Shuttle’s OEM customers.”
Shuttle’s extremely compact DS81 features a very slim design and body thickness of only 43mm, making it well-suited for diverse commercial applications. It provides 1TB of storage, HDMI video support and includes the Intel® fourth-generation Core™ i3/i5/i7 65W Haswell processor for hours of sharp recorded video.
The Shuttle XPC Barebone SZ87R6 packs 4th Generation of Intel Core desktop processors into an elegant, fresh case design, with just one third the volume of a standard Midi tower. Designed for larger installations and 100+ cameras, it boasts the latest Intel Core i7 Quad Core processor and two 4TB hard disks.
“Offering a branded or OEM device that is pre-loaded with software with online license purchasing provides a simple, easy security solution for a wide range of businesses, from mom-and-pop shops to corporate campuses,” said Lash.
