based server/client system. In a v
ideo
surveillance system architecture, the

stop
services for clients. A
Client

makes requests of monitoring video
streams or playback recordings
to Server
, which can resid
e on the
same computer with server program (as from local) or on another
computer (as from remote).
Server

starts automatically as soon as the
Server computer

(where it is installed) boots up, and operates in the
background without requiring login by admin
istrator. It would provide
services over the TCP/IP network to multiple
Clients

upon request
through HTTP Protocol.


There are two types of
Clients
in NVR 3.0 system:
Web Client

and
Workstation Client
.
