The GeoVision GV-VS2420 is a 4 channel IP video server that provides
AHD (Analog High Definition) / Analog to IP conversion for up to 4 cameras. Users can connect up to 4 AHD / Analog CCTV cameras to this IP video server and make all 4 cameras accessible remotely over the Internet or on the local area network.
Please note that the GeoVision GV-VS2420 has been replaced by the newer
GV-VS2401 IP encoder / server for CCTV cameras. The new model supports analog CCTV, HD-TVI, and AHD format security cameras. D1, 960H, 720p, 1080p, 3mp, 4mp, and 5mp security cameras are supported.
This is very useful for users that have legacy CCTV surveillance DVRs that do not support remote Internet access (especially from cell phones). The GV-VS2420 supports remote camera viewing from the free iPhone app and iPad apps that are available to download from the Apple app store. In addition to remote access support for iOS devices, users can also access cameras connected to the GV-VS2420 from Android mobile phones using the free Android surveillance app that Geovision provides. It supports a resolution of up to 1920 x 1080 at 30 frames per second per channel. The GV-VS2420 can record video using the USB storage device input.
Please Note: The GV-VS2420 will only work with AHD (Analog High Definition) cameras.

Below are two typical installation options for users that want to use the GV-VS2420 as an add-on device to enable remote camera viewing with a legacy surveillance DVR that does not support it.
Option #1: If your DVR has video loop outputs, which means that for each BNC video input on your DVR, there is also a BNC output, the below installation option is for you.
Option #2: If your DVR does not have video loop outputs, you can use an AHD-VD104 2 to 4 channel BNC AHD video splitter to share the video signals from up to 2 cameras between the GV-VS2420 server and your surveillance DVR.
Note: In both of the above examples, GV-VS2420 must also be connected to your network router or switch using CAT-5 cable, in order for remote Internet camera viewing to work.
