Supported Cameras Full List

3VR HVRs and NVRs support an almost limitless range of cameras. In addition to offering specific drivers for many camera models from a variety of manufacturers, 3VR provides several different generic drivers that can be used for cameras conforming to one of the major industry standards. You may access a list of supported cameras here.


Many of the cameras listed have been directly tested and verified in our laboratories. Other cameras are supported by design, meaning that a 3VR driver is available that conforms to the camera manufacturer’s specifications (in some cases, the full range of configuration options, such as specific frame rates and resolutions, may not be available). In the event that any of the cameras listed here do not perform correctly when tested, 3VR will make every reasonable effort to fully support that camera’s use. 3VR System Integrators may access a more complete list of the camera models supported, with testing and driver information, on the 3VR Integrator Support Portal.

Document  What is the 3VR SmartCam Program?

The 3VR SmartCam Program highlights advanced capabilities that make IP and Megapixel cameras function together with the 3VR Platform more effectively. This delivers improved performance for analytics and storage and reduces the support and configuration burden for customers and the integrators that support them. Cameras are rigorously tested by 3VR ensuring the highest touch experience before they are deemed "3VR SmartCam Certified".

Document Which IP cameras does 3VR support?

3VR has integrated with many major camera manufacturers; you may access a full list of supported cameras here. In addition, 3VR provides several different generic drivers that can be used for cameras conforming to one of the major industry standards. The 3VR generic IP camera driver supports a wide variety of cameras not specifically supported by another driver. Any camera that offers a standards-compliant RTSP stream (MPEG4 or H.264) or server-push HTTP stream (MJPEG) is likely to be supported by this driver. Some cameras that have been successfully used with this driver include Mobotix, Scallop, and Vivotek. Please contact your 3VR sales representative for more information on generic drivers, and about integration with specific manufacturers or models.
