This Remote Client software program allows user to connect and operate the DVR unit from any place over
internet via PC.
CLIENT PC REQUIREMENT
CPU and VGA are critical for playing recorded file and recording performance. Therefore, user must use the
recommended PC hardware to avoid experiencing low image quality or unable to view live image issue.
※ Client S/W requires large amount of CPU to send and receive data. Therefore, it is highly recommended
not to run other application program (such as antivirus software) at the same time.
▶ Recommended Client PC Specification:
- CPU: Intel Core2 Due CPU or higher
- RAM: 1GB or higher
- VGA: Memory 256MB or higher
-
LAN : In 10/100 network environment, 100Mbps or higher environment
-
DirectX9.0 or higher,
▶ Minimum Client PC Specification
- CPU : Pentium Ⅳ 2.0GHz or higher
- RAM : 512MB or higher
- VGA : Memory 64MB or higher
-
LAN : In 10/100 network environment, 100Mbps or higher environment
-
DirectX9.0 or higher,
In ‘Favorite mode’, CPU occupancy will increase according to the number of remote connections.
▶ Recommended VGA display card
- Chipset from nVIDIA: GeForce 4- Higher than 64MB
- Chipset form ATI: Radeon - Higher than 64MB
- Chipset from MATROX: G450 - Higher than 64MB
- Chipset from Intel: Higher than 64MB
Fail to meet these requirements might cause the program errors, low screen quality like black & white screen,
unable to playback in proper 256 bits color.
