LAS VEGAS, USA (AVING Special Report on 'ISC WEST 2010') -- <Visual News> JVC demonstrated its new Version 5.2 firmware, a free upgrade for its network video recorders at ISC in Las Vegas from March 24 to 26.
Among the new features is a master/slave configuration that allows multiple NVRs to be connected over the network in tandem without a PC.
The new master/slave configuration creates an integrated monitoring system that essentially expands an existing network without replacing equipment. Users can connect multiple JVC NVRs and share resources between them.
For example, a camera connected to one NVR can be monitored through other NVRs – or remote users can see images from multiple NVRs on one screen. The new configuration requires no additional software or camera licenses, and each NVR records images locally or to network attached storage.
For customers who use SNMP software to monitor network-attached devices, the JVC NVR firmware upgrade provides the tools to manage network traffic and device performance. Users can provide critical status of NVR recording, CPU operation, camera connection status, and more. In addition, JVC NVRs now support dynamic DNS (DDNS), which allows customers to use the host names rather than IP addresses to connect remotely. Plus, a new HDD meter application allows users to check hard drive status and remaining space.
