The included accessories

Ultimax 1204 is a cost-effective standalone DVR with network capability, suitable for high resolution CCTV systems with moderate frame rates (4CIF/2CIF at 12 fps in each channel). In more dynamic environments, the user can select the recording frame rate at 25 fps, but in this mode only channel 1 can be recorded with 4CIF resolution - the recording resolution of the rest (2-4) is limited to CIF/QCIF. The local recording and network transmission uses H.264 compression that provides good image quality with relatively small bandwidth and disk space consumption.
A new menu of the DVR has been designed in a manner that helps everyone, even novice users, navigate and make changes to the settings. Both the layout of commonly used functions and graphic design meet the highest current standards. Support for Google Chrome, Opera and Safari web browsers eliminates the need for installing/using ActiveX controls.
Browsing the archives locally, the user can simultaneously play them back from all 4 channels. To quickly localize the interesting moment/period, the video records are presented on timelines (24 hours). The playback can be started just by clicking on a point on a timeline. "Smart search" function allows for finding moments with movement in a defined area of an image in order to analyze vital events.
HIKVISION/Ultimax DVRs in IP networks can be controlled via VMS software. The VMS utility can remotely manage up to 50 DVRs. The user accounts can have different access/management rights, from the highest level of "administrator" to individually limited "guest" levels.
