VMAX IP 4 Channel
Model: DW-VIP4xT
The VMAX IP is a simple and hassle-free embedded NVR. Designed around the popular and easy to use VMAX user experience (UX) and with local Power over Ethernet (PoE) support for IP cameras, the VMAX IP is flexible and easy to configure. True HD output for local display and monitoring allows the VMAX IP to support real-time 1080P live viewing and recording of up to 4x IP cameras. The VMAX IP is sold as a complete solution with VMAX IP 2.1MP bullet cameras, making the VMAX IP an elegant and simple solution for single-site small scale applications.

The VMAX IP 4 Channel NVR is made to match your individual needs and is available as:
  • Complete Surveillance Solution Kit including 4x 2.1MP bullet cameras. The cameras and NVR are natively integrated and the cameras are controlled completely from the NVR, for quick and easy installation and set-up.
  • Standalone 4-channel NVR that can be used in a complete system using our MEGApix® cameras.


Digital Watchdog’s VMAX IP Network Video Recorder is designed specifically to operate with Digital Watchdog’s MEGApix cameras. Most of the MEGApix cameras can be connected directly to the NVR’s local PoE switch, receiving power and transmitting data to the NVR directly. The list below applies to the 4, 8 and 16 channel VMAXIP models. Some cameras require higher voltage (mainly for IR purposes), and may require an additional PoE injector.
