Examining QNAP VioStor Pro Series NVR

By: John Honovich, Published on Oct 03, 2010

QNAP now offers an alternative to their formerly all 'headless' NVR appliances.  The VioStor Pro Series (firmware version 3.3.0) includes 12 additional models that will support video management activities directly on the appliance itself. The new line is available in two (2), four (4), and six (6) drive bay models supporting between four (4) and twenty (20) IP camera connections.

Earlier QNAP NVR appliances required configuration and management tasks be performed on a separate PC using an Internet Explorer browser.  Smaller deployments and other environments without an existing PC will experience the most obvious and immediate benefit from this feature.

We covered QNAP NVR appliances in-depth in an earlier report: QNAP NVRs Low-Cost IP Video Examined
