PC-less Surveillance Management Solution
Synology VS960HD makes surveillance management simple. The palm-sized display device comes with dual HDMI ports supporting 4K and 1080p resolutions respectively, allowing monitoring up to 96 channels of real-time IP camera streams at 720p/10FPS in a single 4K display monitor. The dual HDMI ports of VS960HD support mirrored or extended desktop options for flexible video monitoring layout arrangement. No need to use a costly, power-consuming and space-occupying computer for surveillance live view anymore.
When configured with a Synology NAS running Surveillance Station 8 and onward1 , VS960HD supports direct control of Surveillance Station features such as Live View, Timeline, and Recording List. You can browse through historical video recordings stored in the paired NAS and export video clips or live view screenshots to an external USB drive. You can also configure IP camera recording settings, and edit privilege profiles for individual users directly from VS960HD for convenient surveillance management.
VS960HD supports navigating between different camera streams with a USB mouse or keyboard. Live View layouts are fully customizable with a few drag-and-drops. USB joystick is also supported to operate IP cameras with PTZ (Pan-Tilt-Zoom) control. The audio input and output ports on VS960HD allow microphone and speaker connections for two-way voice communication via audio-enabled cameras.
VESA Mount Compliance and Durable Design
VS960HD comes with a VESA mounting kit that is compatible to the back of any VESA-compliant monitor. The palm-sized display device easily hides behind the monitor, reducing clutter and providing maximum working space. VS960HD also endures industrial temperatures from -20 °C to 50 °C (-4 °F to 122 °F), so there is no need to worry about overheating when installing VS960HD on the back of monitors or in harsh environments.
Thanks to its fan-less design, VS960HD is completely silent and requires only 7.2W when operating with 96 channels. As a PC-less surveillance solution, VS960HD economizes on both equipment and energy costs in the long-run.
