Complete Recording Functions
- High Quality H.264, MPEG-4, M-JPEG, and MxPEG Recordings (depending on the camera models)
- All-in-one Recording Functions
- Continuous, manual, and scheduled recordings *
- Alarm recordings (by multiple events), alarm recording schedule *
- Pre-alarm and post-alarm recordings
- Audio recordings
- Auto snapshots
- * Different recording schedules for the IP cameras.
- Megapixel Recordings:
The VioStor NVR supports megapixel recordings (up to 10-megapixel) from various IP cameras.
- Multi-stream support:
Administrators now can flexibly define multiple video streams (supported by specific camera models) according to bandwidth resources and number of live-view channels.

- Smart Recording:
The VioStor NVR automatically selects video streams from IP cameras for different recording scenarios. In normal situation, video recording maintains at lower quality resolution. While the alarm event happens, video recording switches to high quality resolution to capture more details. In other words, smart recording effectively avoids the constant storage consumption at all time, but achieves greater storage efficiency and boost recording quality when alarm events happen. (Please visit here for camera compatibility list.)
