Taipei, Taiwan, March 17, 2014 – QNAP® Security, a professional Linux-based stand-alone NVR provider, today announced the new VioStor NVR firmware v.4.2.0 supporting Microsoft® Internet Explorer 11, enhanced smart recording supporting more IP cameras, and a wider compatibility with IP cameras and UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply).
“With the surging popularity of Internet Explorer 11, we are delighted to include IE 11 compatibility in VioStor NVR firmware v.4.2.0,” said Andrew Yu, product manager of QNAP Security. Users can now manage their VioStor NVR surveillance systems and enjoy an up-to-date experience on the latest IE browser.
The VioStor NVR firmware v.4.2.0 also adds compatibility for 41 IP camera models that support smart recording, taking the total supported models to 90. Smart recording intelligently records standard resolution videos in regular recording, and switches to high resolution automatically when alarms are triggered. This greatly saves on hard drive costs and provides users with high resolution video evidence when needed. “The expansion of supported IP cameras provides users with increased flexibility in selecting suitable IP cameras to enjoy the benefits of smart recording,” said Yu.
More IP camera models are supported in the VioStor NVR firmware v.4.2.0, taking the total number of supported models to over 2,400. Businesses can enjoy high flexibility in deploying an ideal surveillance solution with the wide-range of compatible IP cameras. The new firmware also supports a new UPS model.
