With the dual local display function, users can monitor locally with high flexibility in a different display resolution, thus eliminating the need for a separate PC to view video from the unit. Besides, the NVR also can be operated with the USB mouse to configure and monitor all the system easily.
Real-time, Remote Monitoring

With low bitrate transmission and unlimited group management, the CMS is able to view a maximum of 64 channels on one page and you may switch between groups to see up to 256 channels of live view or a maximum of 16 channels of playback on one page. The CMS of the NVR-915 is good for chain stores via Internet, large installations in the LAN environment, or any environment where its control center is utilized to monitor via multiple NVRs.
