About NVR Program
NVR (Network Video Recorder) is software that records and saves digital video sent from an IP camera. An
additional hardware system for the NVR software is essential since this NVR is software. This allows you to
select a hardware/system of your choice depending on the specifications of the application. The NVR is
configured as follows:
 Definition of Terms related to NVR
You may operate the system by choosing either the NVR server or the NVR client.
server installed and set up, you may access that server remotely via the NVR Client.
With the main NVR
NVR Server
The NVR Server records and stores video based on specific settings and sends video
to NVR Client.
NVR Client
Through the NVR Client program, you can perform live monitoring and configure
various recording and camera settings via remote access.
The NVR Client refers to
both the NVR Client program installed on the main server and the NVR Client program
installed on the remote access PC.
NVR S/W supports CNB IP Device, but it is incompatible with software of other companies.

Introduction
 NVR System Overview
Send Video & Event to NVR Server
If the camera is registered to the NVR server, the camera sends video and information upon event
occurrence, which can be accessed and checked through the NVR Client monitoring program.
<Relay> Send Video & Event to NVR Client
After receiving event notification and video stream from the camera, the NVR server relays that information
to the NVR Client. Since it is possible to lower the resolution of video at the NVR Client level, bandwidth and
CPU usage is thereby reduced for optimal performance.
Camera Configuration via Remote Access
Various camera settings can be configured via remote access from the NVR Client program.
NVR Server Configuration via Remote Access
The NVR Server settings can be configured via remote access from the NVR Client program.

Introduction
Precautions for Operation
For safe operation of the NVR system, please make sure to read the following:
Administrative Access
Digital videos from CCTV include private information such as individual portraits or activities. Misuse of such
information may be considered an invasion of privacy. Therefore, please ensure that administrative access is
granted only to reliable system administrators.
Secure Location for Main Server
The NVR program/server should be set up at a secure place to prevent unauthorized access.
Dedicate Main Server for NVR Purpose Only
Optimize NVR server’s performance by avoiding installation of other programs.
Maintain NVR OS (Operating System) Up-To-Date
For security reasons and optimal performance, please ensure your NVR’s OS is updated with the latest
version of software.
The NVR program may not run automatically or record/save video during a windows update or
after a system reboot. As such, please check to make sure the NVR program runs properly during
or after such updates and system reboot.
Regularly Back-up Saved Data and Check for Hard Disk Space & Integrity
Due to the nature of high-definition video taking up large space, please make sure to back up data on a
regular basis to prevent loss of data. When space runs out on hard disk, the system will, subject to the NVR
settings, delete oldest video files to create space.
Maintain Correct Time on NVR
All video on NVR is recorded and saved based on the NVR server’s system clock. So make sure to regularly
update and synchronize both the NVR server and cameras to the correct time.
Windows boots to the login screen when the user account is locked or more than two. In this
situation, NVR system does not run so you have to keep one user account without a password.

For optimal performance, please note following recommendations for the number of network
cameras per server:
For a Sandy Bridge i5 CPU, based on 720p resolution at 30fps  Maximum 25 network cameras.
For a Sandy Bridge i7 CPU  Maximum 32 network cameras.
However, since each network surveillance system may have its unique variables and CPU
performance can vary, each user must give full consideration to factors such as CPU utilization,
number of cameras used, bit rate, bandwidth, and network environment.

Check List before Installation
Operating Environment
Configuring firewall to maximize NVR performance
An NVR system requires large bandwidth due to the size of video files transmitted; therefore, the user is
encouraged to utilize firewall to block unnecessary traffic.
Precautions for Installation
 Hardware Considerations
Make sure you have enough RAM, secure storage system, and enough hard drive to handle the large
amount of read and write process.
 Manual update of the NVR server system’s OS
For security purpose, please manually update the server system’s OS on a regular basis and avoid
allowing automatic updates since automatic updates may cause shutdown or system restart, causing the
system to stop recording video.
 Refrain from installing unnecessary software on the NVR server system
Configure the router, server, and/or the firewall to allow port forwarding and remote monitoring.
Network Video Recorder - 9
Installation and Playback
NVR Connection Diagram
For a system infrastructure similar to above diagram, please refer to below guidelines and make sure the
router and the firewall is configured as below. Make sure your NVR Client and DNS server have permission
to connect to the NVR server via remote access. Allow the NVR server to transmit data and communicate
with remote NVR Client or DNS server.
 Forbid access of network bandwidth to other internal from the camera or the NVR server.
(If it is not forbidden, include injection may occur)
 Set up access parameters for remote access to network cameras. If NVR server uses DDNS service,
make sure the server has appropriate permission and set up access parameters for remote NVR Client
to access the NVR server via DNS service. Set up port-forwarding on router.
NVR performance is greatly impacted by factors such as the number of cameras, resolution, frame
rate, compression format, and network condition. In addition, performing search in live view mode
while recording can diminish performance as well. Therefore, please carefully monitor CPU usage
and set up these and other important configurations to create a stable environment.

The Relay feature minimizes bandwidth/network issues associated with making multiple, simultaneous
connections to a network camera. This is done simply by allowing the NVR Server to receive all data from
multiple network cameras and using the NVR Client to connect to the NVR Server to receive such data.

the main NVR Server and remote NVR Client programs.
