Introduction

The TV-NVR1508 NVR is network video recorders that offer a standalone solution for managing IP cameras and systems. The built-in high-quality decoder can deliver 4K/ 5MP/ 3MP/ 1080p/ 720p/ D1/ VGA/ CIF IP camera streams. Each channel can be individually configured to record in SD or HD resolution to suit your needs.

The internal HDMI and VGA engine supports adaptive motion refinement technology, which provides HDMI output with maximum resolution of 4K and VGA output with 1080p resolution. The NVR can be easily installed in all environments through the TCP/IP network, and the support of Camera Search Tool and Web Services Dynamic Discovery (WS-Discovery) protocol allows for locating all the cameras on the network and can generate a preview thumbnail of each channel. The self-diagnostic feature can estimate remaining recording time and

S.M.A.R.T status, network status, and other information.

Files recorded by the NVR can be exported to USB flash drive, or the files can be downloaded via Backup Manager, Remote Player, FTP client , or Network Places. Mobile support for iOS, and Android allows for remote viewing of connected cameras at high frame rates. Browser-based live monitoring and video playback features are also supported.

The NVR also supports external METADATA device, such as POS, ATM, GPS, etc. METADATA can be embedded within videos and saved as a database where you can search for METADATA history according to content, date, and time.

Chapter 3-1-1 Configuring HTTPs Port

The DHD DVR series support HTTPs (Hypertext Secure Transmission Protocol) service. HTTPs is an Internet protocol that ensures the integrity and confidentiality of data as it travels between users' computers and websites. When users visit any website, they want a secure and private online experience.

HTTPs can be regarded as the advanced security version of HTTP. The SSL protocol is added as a security certificate. Therefore, the website can prevent data thief from directly seeing the transmitted data even if they intercept the transmitted information by using the encryption on the agreement.

There are two options to set HTTPs service:

  1. The first option is to create a free self-signed certificate by filling-in the blank field below. Then, click Create Self-signed Certificate.
  2. The second option is to purchase an SSL certificate by filling-in the blank field below and click on Create Certificate Request. Then, click on the Export Certificate Request to download the request into a PC and use to apply for official certification. After purchasing the SSL certificate from a third party company, click on the Import Signed Certificate.
