Preface
The PC Software Package WV-ASM100 is designed for integrated management of multiple Panasonic network disk
recorders and digital disk recorders (hereinafter referred to as recorders), network interface unit (hereinafter
encoders) and network cameras (hereinafter cameras) connected to a network such as a LAN or the Internet, and
runs on the Microsoft® Windows® operating system.
Refer to the "Compatible devices" section (☞ page 5) for the devices compatible with this software.
By using this software on a personal computer (hereinafter PC) via a network, it is possible to display live images of
the cameras, to play images stored on the recorder, and to download image files to the hard disk drive of the PC.
Software configuration
This software consists of the following 3 applications:
Setup software:
The settings required to run the operation software can be configured and managed with
this software.
Operation software:
Displaying live images, playback, downloading, searching for images stored on the
recorder, and controlling of the camera is available using this software.
Service software:
Reception of Panasonic alarm protocol and auto deletion of the operation log will be carried out by this software.
This is the resident application (in the system tray). Once the PC is turned on, the service
software runs in the background of the PC.
