Quick Start Guide of iVMS-4200
1. Overview
This guide provides only brief instructions on the installation, uninstallation, and some basic
operations such as the live view, record and playback of devices via iVMS-4200. For detailed
information of how to use the software, please refer to the User Manual of iVMS-4200.
2. System Requirements
Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP / Windows 2003 32-bit, Windows 7 / Windows 2008 32-bit
or 64-bit
CPU: Intel Pentium IV @ 3.00 GHz or above
Memory: 1G or above
Display: 1024*768 resolution or above
Note: For high stability and good performance, these above system requirements must be met.
3. Deployment Schemes
iVMS-4200 can be used in the local area network (LAN) and the wide area network (WAN). In this
document, only some of the connection deployment schemes are displayed.
Note: In the real situation, the devices connected, such as the DVRs, NVRs, network cameras, etc., are
scalable.
3.1 In the Local Area Network
3.1.1 A Simplified Scheme in LAN
2
Quick Start Guide of iVMS-4200
Application Scenario:
1.
Only one or small quantities of clients need to get video stream from the devices.
2.
The client and devices are in the same local subnet.
Hardware Required:
1.
Network cameras, DVRs, etc.
2.
PC installed with iVMS-4200 client.
3.
Switch or router.
This deployment scheme is convenient and cost-effective. Only the iVMS-4200 client software is
required and you can get direct access to the connected devices, such as the network cameras, DVRs,
etc.
3.1.2 A Complete Scheme in LAN
Application Scenario:
1.
Multiple clients need to get video stream from the devices.
2.
There is no hard disk on the device side or there are disks on the device side, but the record files
need to be backed up for extra insurance.
Hardware Required:
1.
Network cameras, DVRs, etc.
2.
PCs installed with iVMS-4200 client, iVMS-4200 PCNVR, Stream Media Server and Storage Server.
3.
Switch or router.
The DVR, HDVR, NVR, iVMS-4200 PCNVR can connect to and manage the cameras, speed domes,
video encoders, etc., and the iVMS-4200 client can be used to manage the DVR, HDVR, NVR, PCNVR
which provide relatively complete function of the management.
The stream media server can be adopted to forward the video stream so as to lower the network load
of the devices. The record files can be stored on the HDDs of the local device, or on the remote
3
Quick Start Guide of iVMS-4200
storage server. You can also access the client through the web browsing and do some basic operations,
including live view, playback, etc.
3.2 In the Wide Area Network
3.2.1 Static IP in WAN
Application Scenario:
1.
The devices need to be accessed in WAN.
2.
Static IP addresses are assigned to the connected devices in WAN.
Hardware Required:
1.
Network cameras, DVRs, etc.
2.
PCs installed with iVMS-4200 client, iVMS-4200 PCNVR, Stream Media Server and Storage Server.
3.
Switch or router.
Static IP address is assigned to the device in WAN and the iVMS-4200 client can access the device
directly through the static IP address. It is costly when there are multiple devices connected.
You can adopt the router to connect to the Internet, assign the static IP address to the router, and
then get access to the devices through the router static IP address and port No..
4
Quick Start Guide of iVMS-4200
3.2.2 Dynamic IP in WAN
Application Scenario:
1.
The devices need to be accessed in WAN.
2.
The devices can be accessed through device domain names (registered on DNS Server) in WAN.
Hardware Required:
1.
Network cameras, DVRs, etc.
2.
PCs installed with iVMS-4200 client, iVMS-4200 PCNVR, Stream Media Server and Storage Server.
3.
Switch or router.
You can register domain names for the devices on the DNS server, such as Peanuthull, DynDNS,
HiDDNS, etc., and then get access to the devices through the device domain names.
When there are multiple devices connected to the Internet via the router, you can configure domain
name on the router, and then get access to the devices through the router domain name and port No.,
thus to reduce the cost of the domain name.
