    Milestone CCTV Server

    Hello,

    I was just wondering. Is it possible to add an Axis Camera to 2 Milstone xProtect servers please? If you can do you need 2 Licenses?

    Thanks

    2 servers recording the same camera stream?

    You may need a camera that supports multiple streams but yes you woukd need a licence on each server.

    Thought someone would ask. We are a PFI school. We have a behavior CCTV system and the building owner has a separate security CCTV system. We are permitted to view the security side but its a pain having 2 separate systems this would make things much easier.

    Cheers

    Couple of examples

    If we want to follow someone say though a corridor, you see them on the behaviour system, they then pass a camera on the security CCTV system. You have to open another client window find the correct point and camera etc. They might then reappear on the behaviour and you have to switch back again. If it was on all 1 console you can see all 3 cameras on the same screen. You can export the video and see all cameras at once if they are on the same console.

    The behaviour system is AD integrated, the security system isn't. We have to have totally separate accounts for the security side. Thats not the major thing, just an inconvenience.

    They don't have a lower end version. They have the professional version it can run on AD. But they don't have an AD. Its just a standalone server. It won't be going onto our AD. Its on a VLAN that has an ACL blocking it access to our VLANS. We can get onto there VLAN though.

    Ahh ok I see those series cams can send multiple streams so could have them on both but would need the extra licences.

    It's only when you have multiple streams from a camera on one server you don't need an additional licence for example we have once multi stream camera where the 2nd stream in milestone is zoomed in slightly to cover a particular area which as they are good quality is ok.
