Video Surveillance Backup with Windows Security Camera Software


How-to remotely backup video surveillance
footage from an iDVR-PRO security camera DVR with the Windows CMS software. When the Windows software is starts, the initial
display is the live security camera view. When you double click on any of the cameras
the single camera view is displayed and 1080p video resolution is displayed. When you switch to a multi-camera view, lower
resolution video is displayed. I switch from live video to recorded video
playback mode by clicking on this playback tab. A timeline scrubber is displayed on the bottom
of the screen that is used to select the time to begin video playback. After I select, the time on the scrubber,
I click on the plat button in the play control window. You can hide the side and bottom panes of
the window for a larger view. Just like the live camera view, you can switch
between single and multiple camera views when playing back recorded video. From the sixteen camera view, I can switch
to a single camera view by double clicking on any one of the cameras. When you switch to a single camera view in
playback mode, the video displays in the highest recorded resolution. In this case, we are using 1080p resolution
security cameras. Next, I am going to backup and export a segment
of video. I bring the side pane back into view so that
I can access the video backup controls. First, I select a start time and end time
for the video export. I am going to export one minute of video for
this demo. After selecting the start and end time, I
select which cameras I want video exported from. Then, I click on the backup button. This opens the backup screen. On the backup screen, I can choose the directory
location where I want the exported video files saved to. I am going to create a folder called backup. I also change the size of the video files
to the larger option. Last, I click on the start backup button. If you export a large segment of video, please
be patient because the export can take a while. Now, lets navigate to the file location in
windows so that we can play them back using Windows Media player. IN addition to the 4 video files that are
exported, the windows software also exports the video codec that is needed to recognize
these MPEG video files. If this is your first time playing back files
exported from the CMS software, run the video codec installer first. Once the codec is installed, you can simply
double-click on each of the video files. This will open Windows Media player and begin
playing back the exported video. We used 1080p resolution security cameras
for this demo, so 1080p is the resolution of the exported video files. I am going to open each one for a quick view. We have these exported files and the video
codec available to download on our website if you would like to play them back on your
PC. To learn more about iDVR-PRO video surveillance
