Overview
The Versatile H.264 DVR is an integrated digital video recorder that combines the features of a time-lapse audio / video recorder, a multiplexer, and a video server to create a single security solution. Its outstanding triplex operation enables users to view live video, search and playback any recorded video by date/time or event, and remotely monitor the unit via internet on PC, MEANWHILE the recording of the DVR unit is ongoing simultaneously. The Versatile H.264 DVR is enhanced to provide Dual-Codec including H.264 and MJPEG compression mode. Moreover, its distinctive hybrid solution supports the coexistence of network compatible IP devices and convenient analog connections. In addition to these sophisticated functions, another marvelous implementation is the brand-new experience of Graphical User Interface (GUI) that optimizes the monitoring controls of the unit. The Versatile H.264 DVR is pre-installed with remote viewing and configuration software, which is a Web-browser plug-in allowing users to view live or recorded video images, and enables remote configuration. The remote software is stored in the Versatile H.264 DVR and deployed over a LAN, WAN or Internet connection to remote Windows-based computers. This simplifies the installation and maintenance of the software components so all remote users are using the same software coming from the unit.
