The new beta test is for IP video surveillance enthusiast both amateurs and professionals that have extensive experience with IP video surveillance devices, including cameras, encoders, decoders, recording devices, and video management software. The NVR provides video recording, indexing, searching, and video storage management for up to 24 HD (720p) IP video cameras supporting all of the company's cameras and ONVIF compliant IP cameras.
The recording capability of the platform allows it to save up to 16TB of video files and view 16 cameras simultaneously. By connecting the NVR to an external computer or TV monitor using VGA or HDMI output, it is possible to view recordings, monitor live feeds and adjust settings. It supports up to 4 SATA 3.5” hard drives and includes 1 Gigabit network interface.
