QNAP Announces Important Upgrades to VMobile Network Surveillance Application for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch

Tailored for Apple’s mobile devices, the new version of VMobile network surveillance application introduces increased user customization with enhanced authority management and greater image quality in CIF resolution.

Taipei, Taiwan, May 13, 2011- QNAP Security, the leading manufacturer of Linux-embedded standalone Network Video Recorders (NVR), unveiled version 1.0.3 of its VMobile network surveillance application for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This newer version improves resolution to CIF (320x240) for iPhone in one to two channel display mode and iPad in all channel display modes. In addition, any account on VioStor NVR can connect to an unlimited number of NVR and IP cameras through Wi-Fi and 3G or 4G networks. Once connected, users can easily access video management functions such as remote live view and playback recordings. These updates bring even more convenience and peace-of-mind to remote users.

VMobile application also supports diverse monitoring modes, such as 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, and 9-channel display modes and sequential display mode. Other robust features include PTZ and preset position control, instant notification of multiple alarm events, and snapshots. Users can specify channels and alarm events to display. VMobile logins will retain any predetermined user access authority in the NVR. This feature effectively prevents unauthorized access of certain channels.

"With the increasing popularity of smart phones, remote monitoring ability is becoming more important than ever. QNAP Security believes that the enhancements to the resolution and settings flexibility extensively improve convenience and practicality for users on-the-go," said Andrew Yu, Product Manager at QNAP Security. "From its release in the Apple App Store in March 28, 2011 to April 3, 2011, more than 2,882 users have updated to VMobile version 1.0.3. Meanwhile, the number of first-time installations is steadily growing, demonstrating the yet increasing demand of mobile surveillance capabilities. With this in mind, QNAP Security will continue to invest in VMobile to further develop compatibility, stability, and simplicity to bring its users an unbeatable mobile monitoring experience."
