Can you convert DSSRV / DSSRV2 DIACAP recorder into a non-DIACAP recorder?

Issue

DIACAP compliance is not required, is it possible to run non-DIACAP (standard) Digital Sentry software on a DIACAP DSSRV / DSSRV2 model?

Product Line

Pelco Video Management

Environment

  • DSSRV / DSSRV2 - DIACAP
  • USB - Factory Recovery Media

Cause

What is the process.

Resolution

Yes, the difference between the type of recorders is purely software in nature.
A DSSRV / DSSRV2 DIACAP recorder has been imaged from the factory with a special hardened Windows OS configuration which complies with the DIACAP specification.

If DIACAP compliance is no longer required, simply download the standard recovery image and recover the system.
