VMAX® IP Plus 16-channel NVR
Model: DW-VP16xT16P

The VMAX® IP Plus™ is an easy to use PoE NVR that allows you to go from power up to monitoring in less than three minutes! The NVR offers unique features such as CCIP™ camera encryption and internal systems diagnostics, keeping your system healthy, secure and up to date. Combine with the DW Witness™ app to turn the camera on a smartphone or tablet into a surveillance camera that can be viewed and recorded on the NVR. Combine your VMAX IP Plus with DW Spot™ Monitoring Modules for public view monitors. Each NVR can support up to 16 remote connections and share a maximum of 64 channels simultaneously.

Available with 16 PoE ports, the NVRs can record and manage single-sensor IP cameras up to 4K resolution with 160Mbps throughput.

CCIP™ System Encryption
Camera streams are protected when a user ID and password are used with an NVR. The additional CCIP™ (Closed Circuit IP) encryption is activated when the VMAX IP Plus™ system sends a request for an encrypted stream from the camera. The camera then encrypts its RTSP stream a second time, 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 VMAX IP Plus™ NVR.
