Clear and High Quality Live Video


The NVR is capable of receiving and recording high quality H.264 video stream up to 2 MegaPixel (1920×1080) at the same time.

Not only you can view the videos in different layout, you can also set to view them in full screen or configure the web UI to automatically sequence through each channel automatically. You are also able to take snapshot of a viewing video, send and receive audio from the video or start recording right away all with just a single click.




Say you have multiple cameras set up at the entrance of the building from different direction. With synchronous playback, you are able to view playback videos recorded at the same time from up to 4 cameras (web UI only). The web interface provides you the functions to search recorded videos by time or by event and you can stop, pause, fast forward or rewind the playback videos at anytime. You can perform digital zoom to a playback video if it was recorded in high resolution and you can also take a snapshot or export a portion of the recorded video as AVI file onto your local PC for further investigation.









You can use the on-screen virtual PTZ panel to control movement of a PTZ camera. The PTZ movement speed is adjustable if the camera supports this function. You can configure multiple PTZ preset points in the NVR or synchronize them from the camera and use the virtual PTZ panel to jump through the preset points. You can also use the PTZ panel to start automatic sequence viewing among the preset points.




Visual Event Alerts Through Google Emap


Users get full experience of the Google map functions and visual notification of events that are coming from any cameras. The Google map is embedded to the NVR web UI, providing instant event notification along with camera’s geographic information. You can zoom in to a smaller region to monitor events from particular cameras within that region and if an event is triggered from a camera that is located outside of your current viewing area, the map moves automatically to the area of where the event trigger camera is located.



Live Monitor While On the Go


You should still be in control while you are on the go. The NVR can be connected with major smart phones and live images can be viewed with their built-in web browsers. No additional software or plugin required. You are able to view live images and perform PT control through the browser. You can also adjust the video refresh rate instantly if you are in a area where bandwidth is limited.


** This function requires javascript to be enabled on your smartphone’s web browser.

The NVR can be connected with our iPhone app, mobile viewer, providing you an enhanced user experience when doing live monitor with an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. You can also perform playback, search event recording as well as functions such as digital zoom and take a snapshot of the video, giving more controls while you are on the go.



Easy Access With Dynamic DNS


The NVR can connect to the Internet with a static IP or a dynamic IP, but it’s tedious to memorize the IP, not to mention if you need to manage more than one NVRs. Enter “Dynamic DNS, a service that is built-in to the NVR that allows you to manage it with a fixed domain name.




The NVR is designed for multi-sites applications that can grow with your business. It is bundled with a central management software that can manage 16 NVRs (or up to 256Ch.). You can connect up to 5 monitors to the CMS station that lets you perform multiple critical functions at the same time and still keep you alerted. Your system is already expandable the moment you purchase it at no additional cost.

HDMI Output UI



Other than web management interface, the NVR provides an easy-to-use local interface through the output of the HDMI connector.
