Thank you for purchasing your VT-DVR04, a state of the art Digital Video Recorder
(DVR) utilizing the latest available video processing technology.
This version of the User’s Manual was written in March 2003. The contents of this

We, at Vitek, have developed a Digital Surveillance System Chip, a central processing
unit, that achieves real-time outputs to each of 4-channels of video. We have increased
the compression rate by employing MPEG-2 technology that enhances the core function
of image preservation--the essence of a security system. For your convenience, we have
