    Hello Firadus,

    Do I understand you correctly, that you need NVR to look like an NX Server in the left-hande resource tree in GUI client application?

    Could you please give more detail, what is the objective of such functionality? What it would allow you to do in your business scenario?

    Is it enough that NVR would like multichannel camera in the resource tree  in GUI client application?

    HI Andrey Terentyev

    Thanks for your comment, correct, we want to add 3rd party NVR on the left-side of resource tree in GUI app.

    The objective of this task is to integrate 3rd party NVR that's not currently supported by NX, our clients have this kind of request since it's too expensive for them to replace their 3rd party NVR with NX, therefore asking whether it's possible to achieve combination of NX with 3rd party NVR using NX-Witness as its master VMS controlling other NVR.

    Should be enough as long as we can get the live or archive from said NVR.

    Hi Firdaus,

    Just in case, here is a service where you can check if a device is supported.

    https://ipvd.networkoptix.com/

    If it's not, you can use Video Source SDK to develop a plugin (aka camera/NVR driver) for a certain device to make it work with Nx Server. The SDK is provided with several plugin examples. You can start your development with one of them.

    Here is the link to the Video Source SDK

    Hi Andrey,

    The NVR aren't on the list, therefore we will create a plugin for it. 

    Appreciate to point that Video Source SDK , however I can only find sample for image_lib & axis_cam plugin, it isn't like what I was thinking because NVR isn't the same as camera, but I will try to start from there. 

    Btw this client is a HK shopping mall, already a big user of NX, 90% of its NVR is using NX, while 10% is using Hikvision & Dahua.

    Thank you.
