of the DVR server. You can also playback video files locally or download from a remote DVR server.
The CMS system Supports Single, Dual, Triple and Four monitor displays. User can operate the CMS
system application on different monitors.

on the Start Record Prior and Stop Record After settings.
- Smart Recording
Automatically switch to recorded at the maximum frame rate setting once a motion is detected

value.
(5) Quality
Adjust the video quality. The higher the value, the lower the compression level and uses more hard
disk space.
(6) Frame Rate
Set the maximum number of frames to be recorded during motion and motionless state. The frame
rate ranges from 1 to 30 for NTSC and 1 to 25 for PAL. The higher the frame rate, it uses more hard
disk space.

latest and advanced video compression format that delivers better video quality and smaller file size
but this uses more CPU resource. Advanced MPEG4 and MJPEG, both provide a standard for color
picture compression rate. MPEG4 uses higher compression rate and smaller file size. While MJPEG
uses slightly lower compression rate and bigger file size.
