EagleDVR System Setup
The EagleDVR system consists of two functionally independent components:
the Video Server and the Video Client.
The software for both of these components are supplied free of charge
with the EagleDVR boards.
What is the Video Server?
The Video Server is the Software which forms the core of the system.
The EagleDVR Video Server Software is installed on a PC with a minimum
of one EagleDVR card. (Up to four cards can be installed.) Video
cameras are connected to the card(s) and the Video Server Software
is run. It performs recording, control, review and system administration
functions. Access to information processed by the Video Server,
as well as its administration, may be performed both locally and
remotely. Remote access is made possible through the Video Client.
Several Video Client connections can be made to the Video Server
through TCP/IP via the Internet, LAN or dial-up networking.
What is the Video Client?
The Video Client is any personal computer installed with the Video
Client Software, which is remotely linked to the Video Server. The
Video Client allows remote access to cameras connected to the main
Video Server. This allows remote viewing of live or recorded camera
footage. (This is ideal for any person wanting to monitor their
premises while away.) An unlimited amount of Video Client PC's can
be connected to the main Video Server PC.
