QVR Pro 01
Your NAS is also a surveillance solution, try it now!
QVR Pro, QNAP’s new surveillance solution, provides 8 embedded monitoring channels, allowing you to quickly build a home surveillance environment hosted on your QNAP NAS without any extra software needed. Businesses can easily expand the number of monitoring channels (up to 128 channels) by purchasing QVR Pro licenses to deploy a large-scale surveillance network.
Fully unleash the potential of fisheye cameras
QVR Pro supports all of the standard fisheye cameras available on the market, and features Qdewarp technology that converts distorted parts of the original images into proportional ratios. QVR Pro also provides industry-leading functions, including allowing a single fisheye camera’s image to be simultaneously viewed in nine channels from different angles and cross-platform hardware-accelerated decoding for fisheye camera images. QVR Pro ensures higher surveillance performance for greater security while providing deployment flexibility.
Easily monitor every corner
Previously you needed multiple cameras to monitor every corner of an environment. Now you only need to deploy a centralized single fisheye camera to monitor the whole area - allowing you to enjoy higher surveillance efficiency with a more budget-friendly cost.
Simultaneously view fisheye camera images from different angles
You can display a single fisheye camera’s image in up to nine channels at one time for a more detailed view from different angles. This does not affect the ongoing recording's video quality.
Cross-platform hardware-accelerated video decoding
When converting fisheye images with common monitoring software, the device CPU load will be as high as 75%. However, with QVR Pro Client, the device CPU load only reaches 25% even when simultaneously converting nine channels.
Note: Hardware-accelerated video decoding is achieved by using a graphics card (or integrated graphics in the CPU) to reduce the device CPU load, allowing you to monitor more cameras at the same time while the device continues operating smoothly.

Motion detection in budget-friendly cameras - including USB webcams!
In the past, QVR Pro only provided event recording and event notifications for expensive cameras with integrated motion detection. QVR Pro now provides motion detection even for budget-friendly cameras and USB webcams as long as they can stream their footage to QVR Pro (e.g. through RTSP protocol). QVR Pro allows you to build a more-secure surveillance system for homes and office environments on an affordable budget.
Note: For cameras lacking integrated motion detection, QVR Pro provides up to two channels for motion detection analysis and supports resolutions up to 1080p.
QVR Pro Client: live view and playback
The QVR Pro Client client software can be installed on Windows® and Mac® devices or in QNAP’s HD Station on NAS, allowing you to monitor from different platforms and flexibly switch from live view or playback mode to take full control over the monitored area.
Monitor the live view of multiple channels and play recordings on a single interface. With just one click you can switch between live, individual playback and sync playback modes. You can also view recordings at a specific time by clicking the time line or by selecting a time range.
The QVR Pro Client provides a highly-customizable display panel. You can change each channel’s display ratio, arrange the display, or use the built-in display module to fulfill your surveillance needs.
Region of Interest
The updated Region of Interest (ROI) feature supports multiple regional images from the same camera in live view and playback mode. You can define and enlarge multiple areas on the overview image with no selection limitations or additional licenses required.
The innovative Qdewarp enables users to view standard fisheye camera recordings in proportional ratios and sizes without affecting original recordings. The distorted parts on the edges can be turned into a clear panoramic view.
Multiple Notification Methods
The event notification provides multiple ways of being informed of emerging events, including flashing red borders of channels, alert buzzers, and the motion icon on the e-map.
With advanced video indexing technology, you can have up to ten-times faster playback speeds than the previous version and up to five-times faster exporting of surveillance recordings.
What’s the difference between QVR Pro and other NAS-based surveillance systems?
In the past, surveillance applications were just one of the many applications on NAS. There was no dedicated storage for surveillance recordings and usually the system performance was limited, making it unsuitable to fulfill the requirements of professional surveillance systems. QVR Pro, QNAP’s brand-new surveillance application, introduces the concept of "dedicated storage space" to ensure that the storage is fully reserved for QVR Pro and the system performance will not be impacted by other applications on NAS.
The API can connect QVR Pro with a wide range of IoT applications. These resources can be easily shared to make the surveillance system secure and more intelligent.
QVR Pro has an independent recording space from QTS, ensuring dedicated storage space, high-quality recordings, and no performance interference.
