GV-IP Decoder Box

Chapter 1
Introduction
The GV-IP Decoder Box is designed to decode incoming IP streams from GeoVision and
third-party IP devices, and to serve as a medium for connecting the cameras and the monitor
for video display in Single View or Quad View. It supports third-party IP cameras that adhere
to RTSP, ONVIF or PSIA, and can automatically search for ONVIF supported third-party IP
devices under the same LAN. To be used with only a monitor, the GV-IP Decoder Box
provides a cost-effective solution for video surveillance as opposed to the traditional DVR and
PC setup. The security administrator can monitor channels, take snapshots of critical
moments, and pause at a channel when events occur, all through the supplied remote control.
GV-Joystick can be installed to control GeoVision and third-party PT / PTZ / Speed Dome
cameras.

automatically saved to the selected storage device (USB drive or SD card) in JPEG format.
Before you start, be sure:

You have inserted a USB drive or SD card for storage.

You have at least 30 MB of space on your storage device.

The storage type is configured as FAT32 format.
Otherwise, the error icon

Chapter 4
Introduction
The GV-Pad is a panel device that decodes and displays incoming IP streams from GeoVision
and third-party IP devices. It is light-weighted and requires only minimal amount of installation.
As a standalone device, the GV-Pad is self equipped with a display screen and supports
almost all the features of a GV-IP Decoder Box. Through the network, a GV-Pad can receive
and manage up to 64 IP streams. The administrators can monitor channels, take snapshots of
critical moments and pause at a specific channel when events occur, all through the supplied
remote control. GV-Joystick can be installed to control GeoVision and third-party PT / PTZ /
Speed Dome cameras.
