Digital / Network Video Recorders & Video Servers

Digital Video Recorders 

Digital Video Recorders (DVR) have outclassed VHS tapes in every respect; quality, durability, reliability and ease of use. These high density recorders store up to thousands of hours of security recordings that can be easily accessed for a specific time with the touch of a button.

Here are some of the functions of the recorders

  • 4, 6, 8, 16, 32 channel modes with internal memory of up to 21 terabytes and higher external storage
  • Remote viewing via broadband with on site recording
  • Video motion to save memory during the night/quiet periods
  • Client foot falls entering stores
  • Analysis's of hourly foot fall patterns
  • Detection of items removed / placed in sensitive areas
  • DVD/CD/Memory stick download of immediately required video images
  • High quality still frames available from recordings

Network Video Recorders/ Video Servers

Network Video Recorders or Video Servers are the next generation of recording devises. Just as DVR's outclassed VHS tapes, the NVRs have higher specifications and capacity for service. 

NVR's still have video channels for CCTV cameras but the transmission is through CAT5 or CAT6 from the CCTV camera. Larger recording servers have can record up to 128 cameras each and the memory and processing capacity is far higher.  

NVR servers are ideal for large scale deployments. NVR servers come in rack mounted format and have the capacity to record images from 128 IP CCTV cameras at 32mb/s at H.264.
