Users might need to follow different workflows to view media from a DVR. Depending on the model, Seon DVRs can save recorded media in a hard drive or an SD card.
In addition, media extracted from these devices can also be archived as video files in another storage location.

Notice that some specific users such as those operating vMax Commander may also have wireless access to video and related data recorded by DVRs through a custom network.
To open media from the DVR hard drive, connect this to your computer through a Seon HDD dock. To open media from an SD card, use an SD card reader connected to your PC. Then, launch vMax View and follow these steps:
When vMax View detects media from an attached DVR (hard drive or SD card) that is not compatible with its current version, it will pop a warning message stating that the program is “Unable to Load Video”. If this happens, please contact the Seon Service team to update your vMax View software.
Alternatively, select an event or alarm date and time by double-clicking on it under the respective Events or Alarms tabs.
vMax View can also display more detailed telemetry information within the Playback Window. To review how this feature works, please read Viewing Telemetry Information in the following section.
