16 Channel Tribrid CVI/IP/Network CCTV Digital Video Recorder
As a CCTV installer, I can tell you that this Tribrid digital video recorder by Security Camera King is a nice way to add some "backwards compatibility" to your current, more modern system. Actually, if it is done right, you can consider it a backwards, forwards, and current DVR. Let's say for example that you currently have an HD-CVI system. You purchased this system because you wanted a system that could give you more than 960H resolution, that would use your old analog coaxial cable, and wasn't as expensive as an IP network megapixel system. However after some use, you decide that you don't need all of your cameras to be high definition (or high resolution) cameras. So if you saved some of your older systems analog cameras, you can now add them to the HD-CVI system by using this DVR. In addition, let's say you have some very remotely located cameras (from a few blocks to miles away). Or you already have a network system. This DVR now gives you the capability of using those cameras too.
This new "mini" style tribid DVR can do all that for you. It does work well with the video recordings, regardless of the inputting system being sharp, clear and noise free. The DVR is that complicated to set up or operate, even though it does have the capability to utilize three different camera types at once. In addition there is still remote access functionality via the Internet. Although I have installed two of these so far strictly for commercial applications, I can see no reason why you wouldn't want to use one of these for a residential application as well. I've found these two to be reliable and TechPro (Security Camera King) has a great technical support staff that is more than willing to help you, whether you are a professional CCTV installer or not, and they won't stop until your issues are solved.
Good Multiple Format Recorder

This multiple format recorder is nice especially if you have cameras that you don't want to dispose of, but need to upgrade your DVR or add additional cameras, especially high definition types. For example, if you currently have an 8 channel recorder that uses 7 analog cameras, you can replace it with this DVR, keep your 7 cameras and add any combination of 9 more cameras that are analog (BNC connector), IP Network (Cat5 Ethernet cables with switches) or HD-CVI high definition. I'll give Security Camera King credit as I think this is just another indication of them always trying to stay ahead of the market with their products. All of the videos we get are sharp, clear, and high quality. If you have used one of Security Camera King's DVRs or NVRs before, you'll be familiar with the program interface or On Screen Display (OSD) menu and it won't take long to get things set up and running. If you aren't familiar with it, their tech support crew does an excellent job of providing support.

If the industry is going to sell different types of cameras (analog, network, co-axial high definition, etc.) than you might as well have a DVR that can handle the different types. We purchased this DVR so we wouldn't have to just throw out our other cameras. In addition, with a 16 camera system, we found that the versatility of being able to use different cameras gave us a more adaptable use of the system. For example all of our overview shots are in analog 960H resolution recordings while smaller objects and areas where we feel we need individual or facial identification we use the megapixel cameras for the best resolution size recordings. I must admit, the use of a "Tribrid" recorder could be a little overwhelming as far as the configuration and setup is concerned, especially for novices, but Security Camera King has a great technical support crew that will work you through any setup "dilemma" you may encounter. We've found all video recordings to be clear, interference free, and color true regardless of the method of transmission or resolution of the camera. I think this is a great idea and I am glad to see that this type of DVR has finally hit the market.
