Full PC & Mac Support

Our HD-SDI systems also offer a free, full-featured, CMS program for both the PC and Mac. Both platforms share the same features, such as the ability to view multiple cameras from multiple DVRs up to a total of 255 cameras, but each program is written natively for each platform. That means the Mac OS version is a native Mac app while still sharing all of the features from the PC version.
