Hi there and welcome

To provide the video to the police you need to backup the video to a USB stick or drive.

Connect a usb drive to the DVR that has no data on it you want to keep as this process will delete all the data on it

Then go to main menu

Select the USB device you would like to format under Device Name and click Browse

Click Format. Click OK to confirm

Then go back to the main menu and click backup

Set the search options to the video you want to export

Select your USB device

Select the format .asf which you can use the fre program VLC player to play

Click Add. A list of files that match your search criteria appears.

Check files you would like to backup and then click Backup. Wait for the backup to complete.

You can then give the USB device to the Police

You can use Digital Zooming and to make it easier as you will need to see the icon to use, I have put the manual below

Page 35 shows you how to zoom.

If you have any problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Else if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
