David- Hikvision has a Web SDK. I suggest you contact your local Hikvision Sales Reprentatitive. They can provide the manual. If you feel you want the Web SDK, they can make it available to you. Please note we will support integrators who purchase thru our authorized sales channels but we cannot support end users on the Web SDK.
