For instance, the CMS software in the NVR-820 can manage up to 16 units of NVR at the same time meaning 128 channels of IP cameras can be viewed simultaneously. With multi-monitor and e-map functions, the NVR can help the administrators to monitor the surveillance system more efficiently and effectively.
