HD-CVI DVR is the main brain of the HD-CVI security camera system
HD-CVI DVR’s can record at resolutions up to 8MP or 4K. HD-CVI camera systems can use both coax cable and cat5 or cat6 network cabling to transmit their signal. This makes HD-CVI a great choice when upgrading older systems. It doesn’t matter if your old system has both coax and/or network cable because the HD-CVI technology will work either way. You can also mix your old cameras analog with the new HD cameras which again saves on upgrade costs.
The other great thing about the HD-CVI technology is that you can run the cabling long distances up to 1500ft. IP camera cable runs have to be run within 330ft before using a separate switch or IP extender. Video footage is recorded digitally onto a hard drive. All of the HD-CVI security cameras are plugged into the back of the DVR.
The DVR’s generally come in 4 channel, 8 channel and 16 channel models. You can also stack the DVR’s to add even more cameras. The channels is how many cameras can be connected to that particular security DVR.
Most DVR’s have multiple ways that you can program them. You can have them record continually which uses the most hard drive space. You can have them record only during specific times of the day which is done in schedule mode. The most popular is to program the HD-CVI DVR to only record on motion detection. This way the digital video recorder will analyze or watch each camera and then enable recording if it detects motion. There are different resolutions and frame rates that a DVR can record in. There are also different output resolutions as well.
