Network Video Recorder with HDMI Output



The DNR-312L mydlink™ One-bay standalone NVR is a standalone storage device that can record video from up to nine network cameras to its dedicated HDD storage1 without requiring users to turn on their PC. Its built-in HDMI port can be used to display the cameras on a standard HDTV monitor. Empowered by mydlink technology, the DNR-312L also supports real-time remote monitoring and playback via a web browser using the mydlink website or the NVR’s web GUI. The DNR-312L has the ability to continue recording live while a user is viewing or searching footage at the same time. With complete video management, the DNR-312L’s display and playback ability make it a convenient and effective video recorder.

A True Standalone Solution

The HDMI port on the DNR-312L can be connected to a high definition TV or monitor, making it a true standalone security solution. Plug a mouse into one of the USB ports and you can control what is displayed on the monitor, play back recorded video and use the digital pan/tilt/zoom functions.

mydlink™ Technology on your Mobile Device

Empowered with mydlink technology, the DNR-312L enables users to remotely view and manage mydlink enabled devices from anywhere via a web browser using the mydlink website or the NVR’s web interface. Additionally, using the mobile app means you can access and monitor your DNR-312L from your mobile devices.

Versatile Monitoring

Users have a variety of options for viewing and organizing camera footage on-screen. If multiple cameras have been set up in a property, users can simply drag and drop video from selected cameras to the viewing area. Camera names and recording statuses are clearly displayed for easy reference. Users can control pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) functions2 from within the interface or by directly clicking on the video.

Secure Storage

Administrators may filter external connections to the NVR by IP address, limiting access and thus increasing security. Administrators may also choose access privileges for users by specifying the cameras they may access. The recorded data can be backed up to additional storage locations periodically or whenever needed.

Extensive Recording Functionality

The DNR-312L’s clear interface allows for easy configuration including compression, resolution, and frame rate for all connected cameras. Once the cameras have been set up, recordings can be made continuously, or according to a user-defined schedule. The NVR also provides event recording based on specific triggers such as when motion is detected.

Convenient and Reliable

The DNR-312L can manage multiple network cameras, providing direct access to view live video and play recorded data over the Internet from anywhere, anytime. Complete video management and the ability to playback and record new video simultaneously, the DNR-312L is an extremely convenient and effective video recorder. Moreover, the small size and portability of the DNR-312L make it easy to deploy in any location.
