Version 10

IP Camera Recording Software for
Network IP Video Cameras

Chances are the software that came with your IP network cameras is not reliable or powerful enough to do everything you need it to.

ViewCommander-NVR IP camera recording software is easy to set up and use, reducing your installation and setup costs right from the start. Its efficiency will allow you to view and record more IP cameras on a single system. Furthermore, ViewCommander's reliability will help insure your video is being saved reliably.

ViewCommander-NVR is a reliable, feature rich, high performance, scalable IP network camera recording and management solution.

ViewCommander products are used worldwide by schools & universities, law enforcement, municipalities, commercial and industrial facilities, as well as for home use.

ViewCommander products can be scaled to fit your needs if you later decide to add more cameras to your existing camera fleet, or decide to upgrade to a version with more advanced features.

ViewCommander includes features to extend the capabilities of your existing IP Network cameras by adding video enhancement functions, advanced motion detection, and camera integration with other systems.

ViewCommander-NVR's remote access web interface allows you to view live and archived video over the Internet with a web browser - eliminating the need to connect to each camera individually.

Viewer Interface Screen

This ViewCommander-NVR screenshot shows the main user interface when taking control of a camera. The live video will be displayed in the main viewing area. Cameras can be selected by choosing a camera from the Video Source Panel on the Left of the screen. The control panel will allow you control Pan Tilt Zoom functions.

Control Panels

ViewCommander's configuration panels are easily accessible.

Video Playback

Playing back recorded video is easy!! Just select the 'Playback' tab, and click on the date from the calendar. Then select the hour and minute to begin video playback. Only dates and times that video was recorded will be displayed, so if you have video that was recorded on motion events only, then only the times when motion was detected will be displayed.

Remote Web Access

All ViewCommander-NVR models come with a built-in video server at no extra cost. You can access both live and recorded video with a standard web browser with NO plug-ins, Active-X or JAVA required, meaning you can view your video from almost anywhere on any computer with an Internet connection.

Video Enhancement Functions

The ViewCommander-NVR software enhances live video in real-time. Use tools to view items in the video that normally cannot be seen using the manufacturer provided viewing applications ! 

Digitally adjust common settings like brightness and contrast even if your camera is not capable of these settings:
  • Night Vision Enhancement - this feature can allow you to see objects in darkened video
  • Digital Zoom - digitally zoom in on objects in the video, even if the camera doesn't have zoom capability
  • Image Stabilization - Stabilize shaky video caused by vibration and wind
  • Reduce JPEG noise from video image streams to see objects more clearly
Vision Enhancement

ViewCommander-NVR's enhancement capabilities reduce visual noise and brighten an image. The image on the left shows an object before enhancement. The digitally enhanced image on the bottom reveals the text in the object clearly.

Supported Cameras

ViewCommander-NVR supports a wide range of popular IP network cameras, including...
