A.) Yes. We can access the MDVR remotely via wired network, WIFI, or cellular 3g/4g.
Q.) Does the MDVR allow IP cameras?
A.) Yes. Our new MDVRs support IP cameras.
Q.) How do I setup my MDVR to be accessed with my laptop?
A.) There are a four ways to do it:
- Connecting your MDVR to your network and providing it an IP Address, then using MWM.
- Connecting the MDVR directly to your laptop, using a crossover cable; then using MWA.
- Using AutoDownload Server software to automatically pull the footage.
- Utilize MobileLink software and connect to it remotely via the web.
Q.) How can I download my data out of the MDVR?
A.) There several ways to download your data to be analyzed in your PC.
- Using a USB memory stick
- Using MWM/MWA over the LAN
- Using with a removable HDD
- Using the Autodownload Server for automatic downloading.
- Using MobileLink with a MDVR in the field
Q.) Is our MDVR able to control PTZ cameras?
A.) Yes. Our MDVR is able to control PTZ cameras through every video channel. It works with the most popular PTZ protocols.
Q.) Using MWA (Client Software), can I remotely change the MDVR’s settings?
A.) Yes. Using MWA, you can remotely change the MDVR’s settings as well as format the HDD and restart the unit. Using FleetWitness you can also update the firmware & configuration settings.
Q.) Can the MDVR display the Speed of the vehicle?
A.) Yes. When the MDVR has the GPS module installed. Or the Speedometer is connected to its correspondent sensor on the pigtail.
Q.) Are the recordings protected in some way?
A.) Yes. The files are watermarked and stored in a proprietary format, which can be open with our software to prove it’s authenticity.
Q.) Can we create small clips of a large recording?
A.) Yes. Using MWM/MWA you can create smaller clips of your recordings in native file format or burn to a DVD.
Q.) Can we export the data into MPEG/AVI format?
A.) Yes. Using MWM/MWA we can export the files to AVI format
Q.) What is the power consumption of our MDVR?
A.) It has to be supplied with 12v DC – 5 amps, but when installed with the external DCDC power converter it will work in a range of 7-28v DC.
Q.) What is the minimum and maximum storage capability?
A.) Using SATA we can go from 32 Gb SD to 1 Tb 2.5 inch drives.
Q.) Can we synchronize time with other devices?
A.) Yes. The MDVR can synchronize it’s time ONCE A DAY with its GPS or some NTP server.
Q.) Does the MDVR automatically recycle the HDD?
A.) Yes. By default it will OVERWRITE the HDD once it has a minimum of 2Gb of empty space; but this parameter is user changeable.
Q.) How does the MDVR protect the data from vibration?
A.) The MDVR is designed with built in shock absorbers in the HDD tray. SAY Security installs high performance and reliable HDDs designed specifically for mobile environments.
Q.) Does the MDVR work with SSD (Solid State Drives)?
A.) Yes. Our MDVR does work with select SSD.
Q.) How do I connect the MDVR to my server using a cellular network?
A.) The H Series have built in USB Modem support, or a built-in CDMA option.
Q.) What is the quality and resolution for our MDVRs?
A.) High (D1) 720×480 NTSC and 704×576 PAL Medium (HD1) 720×240 NTSC and 704×288 PAL Standard (CIF) 360×240 NTSC and 352×288 PAL
Q.) Are the video channels independently configured?
A.) No. When you modify the settings for one channel; the change will apply to the rest.
Q.) Are you streaming GPS or other metadata together with the video? And, do you use a separate file format?
A.) Our platform streams video and GPS (encrypted) along with other metadata information.
Q.) How many amps can we get from the VDC output on the MDVR?
A.) The MDVR can handle between 3~5 amps.
Q.) What kind of information can I find in an AVI file (extracted from a .nvr original file)?
A.) The resultant AVI file will have Video + Audio only. One AVI file will result per each video channel found on the m65 file. If the MDVR was recording two video channels, then 2 AVI files will result; one per channel.
Q.) Can I connect my laptop or PC directly to the MDVR?
A.) Yes. There are two methods:
- Using a router
- Using a crossover cable straight to both RJ45 jacks (in the computer and in the MDVR), or over WIFI, or, 3g/4g network.
