How Can I Connect An HDTVI DVR To A VMS?

I am fooling around with LTS's HD-TVI cameras and NVRs. Is there a way to export their streams so a regular NVR (exacq, Avigilon, etc..) can make use of them?

Thanks


Hi David,

The Hikvision TVI DVR we tested did output RTSP streams for every channel. The format was

rtsp://172.20.128.58/Streaming/channels/XXY

Where XX is the channel (1-16) and Y is the stream type. 1 for the primary full resolution stream, 2 for the secondary stream.

So for channels 1-4, primary stream, you would use:

rtsp://172.20.128.58/Streaming/channels/101

rtsp://172.20.128.58/Streaming/channels/201

rtsp://172.20.128.58/Streaming/channels/301

rtsp://172.20.128.58/Streaming/channels/401

As a side note, both those recorders and recent Dahua models seem to support ONVIF streaming out somewhat, but I haven't found it reliable enough with multiple VMSes to recommended using it. As a very meta test, though, I added a Hikvision HDTVI DVR to a Dahua HDCVI tribrid DVR via ONVIF and it worked just fine. :)
