Video Transcript

Welcome to CCTV Camera Pros' demo of our four-channel iDVR. The iDVR is an H.264 standalone visual video recorder used for closed-circuit video surveillance. The iDVR comes in a four, eight, and sixteen-channel model and is capable of being remotely viewed from a desktop or laptop computer, iPhone, Blackberry, and Windows mobile phones.

In this demo we'll be accessing the DVR remotely from Internet Explorer running on a Windows Vista desktop. We will do remote live viewing as well as recorded playback.

We start by opening our web browser and typing in the IP address of the DVR. On the first screen we click on the web server link. The initial screen that opens is a live view of the four security cameras that are connected to our DVR.

To play back recorded video, we click on the Remote Search button. A time and date search screen opens, where we can pick the exact date and time segment that we want to play back. After we select a time, we click on the Play button, and the Remote Playback screen opens and begins to play back the recorded video. These controls can be used to play the video in forward and reverse and at various speeds.

In addition to supporting remote access from Internet Explorer, the iDVR also comes with CMS software, which stands for Central Monitoring Software. This allows you to view and manage multiple DVRs at different locations from one central screen.

To return to the live video view, we click on the Live button. The DVR settings can be changed remotely by clicking on the Setup button. Things such as recording schedule, time and date settings, and camera color settings can all be changed using this remote interface.

Here we demonstrate changing the colors of various cameras. In this area you can change the recording setup. We can return to the live view by closing the Settings screen.

We hope that you have found this video demonstration useful. If you have any questions about CCTV Camera Pros' iDVR or anything related to video surveillance, please contact us on our website at For more information and pricing on the iDVR seen in this demo, please visit Thank you for watching.
