The IDVR is a video surveillance recorder
from CCTV Camera Pro’s that has amazing support for internet remote viewing for mac computers.
This internet surveillance DVR also supports remote playback of recorded video but this
short video will only demonstrate the live remote viewing.
I start by opening the software on my mac laptop. I selecte DVR new connection from
the menu. The log in menu is displayed. Users need to enter the IP Address or host name
used to access their IDVR along with the port number, user name and password. When the software
connects, the default view that I see is the four camera grid view of cameras that are
connected to the IDVR E4 model that I am using for this demo. I can easily navigate to single
camera view for any of the cameras by clicking on the channel number in the upper left hand
corner. I can go back to quad screen view by clicking
on the grid button. Please note that the actual video surveillance video quality experienced
directly from Macintosh computer is even better than what was seen in this demonstration.
The process that we use to capture the output from the mac, then convert the video to YouTube
format does degrade the overall video quality. In addition to support for mac computers,
the IDVR also supports remote camera view using I phone, I pad, and Android mobile phones
as well as windows based computers. For more information and to watch more IDVR video demonstrations
