QNAP VS-4008U-RP Pro Series NVRs are the new generation 4-bay, 1U rackmount model of network surveillance system providing high quality megapixel recording, 24/7 uninterrupted recording and high performance real-time monitoring. The Linux-based system supports PC-less quick configuration, monitoring of IP cameras over the network, and video playback by connecting a monitor to the built-in VGA connector, a USB keyboard, and a USB mouse. The NVR supports multi-channel H.264, MxPEG, MPEG-4, and M-JPEG recording over 800 network camera models from many popular brands, e.g.AXIS, ACTi, A-MTK, Arecont Vision, AVTECH, Brickcom, Canon, Cisco, CNB, DIGITUS, D-Link, EDIMAX, ELMO, EtroVision, GANZ, Hikvision, iPUX, IPX, IQeye, LevelOne, Linksys, Messoa, MOBOTIX, NAKAYO, Panasonic BB/ BL/ i-Pro, SANYO, SHANY, SONY, TOA, TOSHIBA, TRENDnet, Videosec, VIOSECURE, VIVOTEK and Y-CAM.

The VioStor NVR houses 4 SATA hard drives and supports secure data protection by RAID 1/ 5/ 5 + hot spare/ 6. It is capable of megapixel recording (up to 8-megapixel) and multi-server monitoring, a unique feature to allow the users to monitor up to 128 IP cameras from multiple QNAP NVR servers without any extra software. Diversified recording modes such as scheduled recording, alarm recording, alarm recording schedule, motion-detection recording, pre-alarm, and post-alarm recordings are provided. The NVR supports enhanced video search by intelligent video analytics (IVA), including motion detection, foreign object, missing object, out of focus, and camera occlusion.

The VioStor NVR offers advanced event management to support more alarm event types and handling options. The event types include motion detection, network disconnection, recording failure, and even self-defined events. Individual user type and access rights can also be assigned for strengthened user account management and secure system access. The NVR is an excellent solution for small to large-scale surveillance deployment.

  • Online RAID Capacity Expansion and Online RAID Level Migration:
    • Online RAID Capacity Expansion:
      The storage capacity of a RAID configuration can be expanded by replacing the hard drives with larger ones. All the data will be kept and seamlessly moved to the newly installed hard drives. There is no need to turn off the server during the process.
    • Online RAID Level Migration:
      You can upgrade the disk configuration to higher RAID level with the data retained without turning off the server.

  • DOM Architecture with Embedded Fail-safe Dual OS for Enhanced Reliability:
    All the OS and applications of VioStor NVR are embedded on the DOM. VioStor NVR allows system booting without accessing the physical disk sectors which prevents unsuccessful system startup caused by bad block sectors or file errors on the hard drives. Two operating systems are built on the DOM for system booting alternatively upon every system startup. When one fails, the other one will be used to boot up instead, and the failed OS is recoverable from the other healthy OS.
