Technical Support Articles and How-to Guides for Geovision PC Based Surveillance DVRs and NVRs

This page contains technical support and setup information for the Geovision PC Based DVRs / NVRs from CCTV Camera Pros. Geovision PC based recorders can be DVRs based on a Geovision DVR card, an NVR based on Geovision IP camera software, or a hybrid combination of both.

Because the user interface on the Geovision varies with version number, the setup articles are organized into 2 sections.

If you are unsure which version of Geovision that you have, please refer to the About Main Console section in your Geovision software. Please note that the client application setup instructions are below because they apply to all Geovision software versions.
