  • LOGIN To log in or out, click LOGIN . If logging in, enter the correct credentials and click OK. Change Password Once a valid User Name and Password have been entered, Change Password can be selected to change the selected user’s password. LDAP This allows the use of Active Directory (domain) credentials. This enables users to retain their standard ID and password used at any computer instead of creating separate accounts on the DVR.
  • Screen Divisions If a screen division is not enough to display all of the cameras, multiples of the same screen division will be present. In the above example, the four channel division labeled 1 will display channels 1-4 and 2 will display channels 5-8. The order in which cameras are displayed can be changed by the DVR administrator. If more than 4 megapixel IP cameras are connected, the live view will be restricted to no more than 4 cameras at any given time to ensure optimal performance. The DVR administrator should be consulted if this restriction needs to be lifted. Full Screen This option will expand the current screen division to hide the software interface. Click the right mouse button to exit full screen mode. Sequence Starts cycling through configured sequences. Configuration of the channels to be included in the auto sequence must be performed by the Administrator in the General setup menu. By default, this button will sequence through each of the screen divisions.
