CCIP™ System Encryption

The CCIP™ (Closed Circuit IP) encryption is activated when the VMAX IP G4™ system sends a request for an encrypted stream from the camera. The camera then encrypts its RTSP stream a second time using TLS, using the encryption's user ID and password. The result is a secured and encrypted RTSP stream that can be read only by the requesting recorder.

3-minute installation

The entire system can be set up and configured in less than four minutes from power-up. Using the user-friendly startup wizard, configure the NVR’s main functions, locate and register all your cameras and set them to record in less than four minutes and with no need for a technical background!


C3™ CMS takes video management to the next level. You are in complete command to control all your video surveillance systems in one intuitive interface. Easy-to-program alerts let you take action in real-time and manage the health of your devices.
