NVR remote configuration




If you are buying some IP cameras and looking for a high-end NVR for video recording that guarantees maximum performance, without compromise, our DS range is the right choice for you.
The ability to manage IP cameras up to 12MP and monitors up to 4K in addition to full support of the most advanced H.265 video compression format make this NVR a top-of-the-range product, suitable for IP technology of the highest technological level.
Our NVR DS series are also easy to use and are installed in minutes thanks to the built-in POE ports with plug and play configuration of IP cameras.


Although many of our IP cameras are able to record on their own SD card or computers, about 90% of the IP systems we sell include our NVR video recorder.
The reason is simple: the presence of an NVR makes the IP CCTV system easier to use and add many valuable features.
When installing the system, DSE NVRs simplify your job by providing POE ports for connecting cameras and automatically configuring IP addresses. They also take care of the optimal bandwidth management, providing always fluid images and minimum latency.
In addition, the NVR DS series provide video outputs for connecting any type of monitor up to 4K resolution. You can insert Hard Disk up to 8TB to store recordings in the mode you prefer.
An NVR DS series will become the heart of your IP system: powerful in managing all cameras and easy to reach via the Internet, by PC or mobile phone, for live view and video playback. 


ONVIF protocol
onvif members ITALY IP cameras DSE NVRs communicate with IP cameras using the standardi ONVIF protocol.
ONVIF is an important standard in the IP video industry, the result of the collaboration of major manufacturers. With this protocol, you can use NVR DS series with all of our IP cameras, but also with IP cameras from other manufacturers, provided they meet the standard.
DSE is one of the few companies in Italy to be a member of ONVIF (see ONVIF MEMBER LIST ). Only ONVIF members have access to the tools to certify their products' compliance to the updated standard. This is an important guarantee for the user, which is to be considered in the choice of supplier.

Up to 12MP cameras
4K NVRDS series network video recorders are designed to work with any kind of IP camera, including the best models  up to 12MP resolution.
NVR with only one HDD, DS-IP4 and DS-IP16 can record cameras up to 8MP (4K - 4096x2160), the DS-IP16H model up to 12MP (4000x3000).
Obviously DS range NVR can also handle all the lower resolutions: HD 720P (1280x720), FULL HD 1080P (1920x1080), 3, 4, 5 and 6 MEGAPIXEL.
The maximum frame rate for each channel is 25 f / sec, which means 100% real time. 25 f / sec is the movie standard. At this playback speed, the human eye does not feel the distance between the single frames of the movie and the video is fluid even when shooting subjects moving fast.
The ability to handle high resolution IP cameras, over 4K, is one of the factors that put this range of NVRs at the top of the market.

Up to 4K monitor
4K NVRAll DS Series NVRs come with 4K HDMI monitor output to connect the most advanced monitors on the market at maximum resolution.
This is another important factor distinguishing this range from the lower end NVRs.
If you purchase IP cameras with a resolution above 2MP, such as our 4MP models, you should not use them with normal NVR with 2MP (FullHD 1080P) video output, because you would not be able to see full resolution of your cameras on screen.
With NVR series DS, with 4K HDMI output,  you can reproduce perfectly the best 4K IP cameras in the market and manage the best TV monitors of any size.
Obviously, these NVRs allow you to connect standard 1080P monitors to the HDMI port and also have a VGA port for computer monitors. You can split the visual area in many modes, depending on the connected cameras, and you can also manage the corridor view mode by displaying some cameras with vertical orientation.

H264/H265 video compression
H265 NVR NVR DS series are among the few NVRs on the market that already support the H265 format: the most advanced video compression standard available today.
Latest evolution of video coding, H265 has further improved the performance of the previous H264 format by reducing the video bandwidth by more than 50%.
Most of our IP cameras are now supporting H265 video compression, but if the NVR is not suitable for this format you must turn them to H264 mode.

With our H264/H265 NVR, you can always use the full potential of your cameras, whether they use H264 or latest H265 format.

Generous inbound bandwidth up to 160 Mbps
One of the most critical factor affecting the cost of an NVR is the maximum incoming bandwidth it can handle.
An enhanced input bandwidth NVR can handle more cameras, higher resolution and higher frame rates.
One of our 2MP IP H265 cameras takes around 2MP bandwidth, depending on the settings. Our 4MP camera takes about 4MB and so on increasing the resolution.
All NVRs in this range provide a generous bandwidth, above average, to leave you free in choosing and adjusting your cameras.

Inbound bandwidth  40 Mbps  60 Mbps  160 Mbps 
Outbound bandwidth  60 Mbps  80 Mbps  320 Mbps 
Max. remote users  128  128  128 

POE ports
Unlike our range of NVR DN Series, which only works with cameras connected to the external network, this DS range also provides the user with built-in network ports to connect IP cameras to the NVR.
All the b
uilt-in network ports are equipped with POE power suitable to any type of IP camera, both in normal  (IEEE802.3af) and high power (IEEE802.3at).
In the NVR menu you can control the power consumption of each camera and the remaining power capacity, for a perfect system management.
Obviously you are not obliged to use the NVRs POE ports and you can choose to leave them partially or totally free while connecting the cameras to the external network.

POE ports  16 
Max. total power 54W  108W  240W 
Max. power per port 30W  30W  30W 

PLUG & PLAY configuration
If you are not familiar with the operation of a network, you may be afraid to purchase a high performance NVR, thinking it is sophisticated and complex. On the contrary, our NVR DS series makes installation of the entire IP system very simple even for those with limited computer skills.
Thanks to the integrated DHCP server, our NVRs automatically configure all network parameters of each IP cameras which is connect to the POE  ports (Plug and Play).
You can take the cameras from the box and connect them right to the NVR without any preliminary configuration.

HDD video recording
