To integrate a variety of video capabilities, you can deploy your video surveillance system once the pre-configuration steps are completed.

What you should know

Information about how to set up a typical video installation is described here. Your process might be different, depending on your specific installation requirements.

  5. Configure your networking environment.
  6. If necessary, set up additional Archiver roles.
