Overview
Lite H.264 DVR is an integrated digital video recorder that combines the
features of a time-lapse audio / video recorder, a multiplexer, and a video
server to create a single security solution.
Its outstanding triplex operation enables users to view live video, search and
playback any recorded video by date/time or event, and remotely monitor the
unit via internet on PC, MEANWHILE the recording of the DVR unit is
ongoing simultaneously.
Lite H.264 DVR is enhanced to provide H.264 compression mode. Moreover,
a marvelous implementation is the brand-new experience of Graphical User
Interface (GUI) that optimizes the monitoring controls of the unit.
Lite H.264 DVR is pre-installed with remote viewing and configuration
software, which is a Web-browser plug-in allowing users to view live or
recorded video images, and enables remote configuration. The remote
software is stored in Lite H.264 DVR and deployed over a LAN, WAN or
Internet connection to remote Windows-based computers. This simplifies the
installation and maintenance of the software components so all remote users
are using the same software coming from the unit.
2.
System Setup
The notices and introduction on system installation will be described
particularly in this chapter. Please follow the description to operate the unit.
In order to prevent the unit from data loss and system damage that caused by
a sudden power fluctuation, use of an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) is
highly recommended
2.1
Position the DVR
First, note to position / mount the DVR in a proper place and be sure to power
off the unit before making any connections. The placed location should avoid
hindering or blocking the unit from airflow. Enough airflow is needed to
protect the unit from overheating. The maximum allowable temperature of
operating environment is 40°C.

DVR User’s Manual
The unit utilizes heat-conducting techniques to transfer internal heat to the
case, especially to the bottom side of the unit.
NOTE: Be sure the rubber feet are not removed, and always leave a
space for air ventilation on the unit’s bottom side.
2.2
Select Video Format

Appendix D: Setting up a DVR behind a Router
This appendix describes how to set up a router if the DVR connects to the internet via a
router.
To properly operate a web server, e.g. a DVR, users have to set up both the IP and port of
the DVR, which are essential for data and command transmission. The port setting is
adjustable in OSD setup menu of the DVR and only one port is needed to do remote
operation. Typically and by the default, the DVR operates on port 80, which is well known
as the http port. Please make sure that port 80 is not blocked by the ISP. Otherwise, a
different available port shall be reset and the setting of the DVR shall be changed.
In case a router or sometimes a DSL modem is in place, the real IP is now assigned to the
router instead of the DVR. The DVR is located behind the wall (router) and operates on
virtual IP. In most cases, virtual IP starts with 192.168.x.x. The router has two IP: one is real
IP (WAN IP); the other is virtual IP (LAN IP). The virtual IP would be 192.168.x.1. When the
remote users want to operate the DVR, they will have to send command to the real IP, i.e.
the router. Then the router has to map (forward) the command to the DVR. Thus, it is
required to set up the router for port mapping (forwarding) before images from the DVR can
be remotely viewed on a PC.
See the router manufacturer's websites for more instructions on port mapping.
58
DVR User’s Manual
Following is an example of how the router should be set.
