The Qnap VS-2008L-US VioStor Network Video Recorder (8-channel, 2 Bay) is a standalone network surveillance system, which supports monitoring of IP cameras, video recording, playback and remote data access. It supports real-time 8-channel H.264, MPEG-4, and M-JPEG, recording from ONVIF-compliant IP cameras and other surveillance devices.

With the multi-server monitoring feature, the VioStor NVR allows you to simultaneously monitor up to 128 IP cameras from multiple NVR servers. The VioStor NVR features schedule recording, alarm recording, alarm recording schedule, motion-detection recording, and pre/post-alarm recordings. The digital zoom function of the NVR makes for flexible monitoring and playback. Use the web user interface to directly adjust the PTZ cameras.

Equipped with enhanced video search by IVA (Intelligent Video Analytics), the NVR offers features such as motion detection, foreign object, missing object, out of focus, and camera occlusion. It also offers high security to data by RAID 1, Online RAID Capacity Expansion, Online RAID Level Migration. The easy-to-install NVR supports 2 SATA hard drives and has such features as event management, convenient backup solution, one-touch audio-video backup, security control, E-map, digital zoom, digital watermarking, etc. File security can be ensured with the digital watermark feature.

The Linux-based network solution (for use in the US) is suitable for small and medium sized companies and SOHO such as small stores, restaurants, gas stations, storage yards, and garages.
