8 Channel Surveillance DVR - Great Video Quality & Easy to Use

This DVR offers it all; it’s a reliable hardware DVR but is programmed with "user friendly" software. The system is programmed and operated using a mouse and a friendly graphical display. No confusing remote controls or arrow driven menus to struggle with, just a click of the mouse gets it done!

Frame Rates - Viewing & Recording 720p (1280x720 pixels)

  • All Video Inputs: 720p (1000 TV Lines) - 30fps Live Viewing & Recording

Video Storage

The unit stores the video footage on an internal hard drive. The size of the hard drive and the recording options determine the total number of days the system can store. Typically a 2 Terabyte hard drive can store 1-2 weeks of footage for all eight cameras. Setting all cameras to record only when motion is detected can more than triple the storage capacity to 4-6 weeks.

Smart Phone Compatible

This DVR is fully compatible with cellular phones including I-Phone, Android and many others using RTSP.

H.264 Compression - High Quality Images - 1/3 The Size

The unit utilizes true H.264 video compression, which is the best on the market. The H.264 video compression allows the DVR to record amazing high quality video images without using up a ton of storage space.

Embedded Linux OS For Rock Solid Dependability

This standalone DVR runs an embedded Linux operating system for years of trouble free service. No PC is required with this system; just plug in your cameras and hook up any standard VGA or CCTV monitor and begin recording up to 30 frames per second right away. This DVR is built for one thing and that is recording and playing back high quality surveillance video. No need to worry about viruses, Trojans or spam slowing your computer down.
