Record > Enable

Enable or disable recording for the channels on your NVR.

 

  1. Channel List: List of available channels.
  2. Record: Select which channels will record. Your Zosi NVR will default to enable video recording. Uncheck the box to disable recording for this channel.

To apply your selections to all channels check the box at the bottom of the screen under the section marked “All”.

Record > Record Bitrate

Adjust the settings that determine the quality of recorded video

 

  1. Channel List: List of available channels.
  2. Resolution: Automatically displays the record resolution for each connected camera.
  3. FPS: Select how many frames-per-second will be recorded. Higher frames-per-second will take up more hard drive space but will provide a smoother picture.
  4. Encode: Select between CBR (Constant Bit Rate) and VBR (Variable Bit Rate) audio encoding. VBR is the default.
  5. Quality: Select between 7 levels of video quality. The default is “higher” quality. Lower settings will use less storage space while reducing image quality.
  6. Max Bitrate: Select the maximum bit rate to be transferred from the camera to the NVR. A higher bitrate will result in a higher quality recording at the expense of storage space.

To apply your selections to all channels check the box at the bottom of the screen under the section marked “All”.

Remember to “Apply” your settings before exiting the menu.


Record > Recycle Record

Select whether the NVR will automatically recycle old footage.

 

Recycle Record: Select to recycle the oldest video with the most recent video as hard drive space is needed. The default is set to overwrite the oldest material on the NVR. Be advised that turning this setting off will require manual management of any files on the NVR. If un-managed the NVR may fill up, and the NVR may not record.


Record > Snap

A Snap is a quick single-frame photograph of the image that appears on the Live View whenever motion is detected.

  1. Resolution: The resolution for Snap photographs is CIF resolution.
  2. Snap Time Interval [S]: Set how many seconds between each image. The default is 5 seconds.
  3. Snap Number: Select how many snaps to send with the email notification. The default is 1.
