4 Channel HD Series HD_SDI Realtime Security DVR
  Review by Alfred Sorenson on Aug 08, 2014
I'm new to this new(?) technology. I have had a small 4 channel system to for my small shop for several years. The cameras were 420TVL I believe. I have to admit the DVR was pretty darn old and made some strange and interesting (and definitely audible) sounds. When I decided it was time to invest in a new system, I asked my son for advice since he is the whiz kid in that department. We argued for days about the price although he insisted that for this type of DVR the price was more than reasonable. At one point I threatened to call Security Camera King myself to ask a lot of questions but then I realized that since I didn't know a thing about this technology or how to use it, I'd probably sound like a nut. So, after deliberating for some time I finally gave my son the "-go-ahead" to purchase this DVR and four cameras for the shop. One of the benefits that convinced me to do that was the fact that no new cable had to be run, my old system's coaxial cable would be satisfactory.

We ordered the equipment from Security Camera King and it came within about 3 days. That was fast! As soon as it arrived my son unpacked and installed the DVR and cameras, replacing the old set-up, and I don't think it took more than just a couple of hours. After getting things switched I looked at this DVR's video and recorded video. My gosh, what a difference! I though I was watching a movie it was so clear! The DVR continues to run great and I am very happy with the whole system. I would recommend this to anyone, but especially to those who maybe considering replacing an old system since the cables and remain in place.

Well for one thing, you'll find it hard to find HD-SDI recorders in local stores. Quite a few vendors on line have them, but I am upgrading a very old system that I purchased some replacement cameras from Security Camera King a couple of years ago for, and I was very pleased with the quality of those cameras and how well they worked. So now that I'm going this way, I decided to settle on Security Camera King again and I must say I'm not disappointed. The video quality out of this HD-SDI systems is nothing short of sensational compared to 600 TVL systems for example. If there are books in a room, with this extreme resolution, not only can you see the book but you can usually read the title! The OSD on this recorder is simple and easy to use (I figure if I can use it anyone can), and the remote access options are great to use with my LG G2. I can't believe Security Camera King makes their software and apps free to download and use when other companies try to stick it to you by charging for them after you've bought their high priced system. I've got to recommend this unit for 4 channel users and Security Camera King as a company overall.

I realize this is a video security camera recorder, but we actually don't use our system for security as much as we do for documentation. I am one of the computer specialists assigned the duty of maintaining this system in our meeting/negotiations room. We are a large legal/financial firm and we often have meetings or negotiations that occur that we prefer to record for our benefit and protection. Our meeting room is sound proof but clearly marked at the entry that proceedings within the room are being video and audio recorded for all parties' benefit. (Disclosure and acceptance notifications are also signed by all participants to satisfy any legal requirements as well). In the past we have used a web conferencing camera set up. The cameras will follow moving participants (in the case of a presentation for example) and the central table microphone records the audio. However, we have found this system to be inadequate. So instead, we have installed this 4 channel HD-SDI DVR to record and HD-SDI cameras (as well as individual powered microphones for each). This is working out much better than the make-shift conferencing equipment we have used in the past.

The DVR does an excellent job of recording both video and audio and they are synched perfectly as well. The extremely high resolution video provides very good details and color accurate recordings while the audio is very clearly understood and not distant sounding or distorted. The extra internal hard disk drives allow us plenty of room for continuous recording during the longest meetings and internal DVD burner allows us to provide copies of them for external attendees/participants afterwards. Although our use may be somewhat unusual for this type of equipment I can only imagine that it would work perfectly as a video security system as well. In addition, I did have some questions setting up the system so I contacted Security Camera King via their technical support department. They gave excellent service, exact directions, and pertinent solutions.

Excellent definition, clarity and color of the videos. They look just like digital movies taken with a regular video camera. Facial recognition is realistic and excellent and the DVR is pretty easy to use. The DVR can be operated by the buttons on the front or by using the included USB mouse and the On Screen Display (OSD) menu system. This OSD is easy to use as far as clicking the mouse, navigating, etc. but it does take a little while to learn where all the settings are at and how too get to them quickly and make the proper adjustments. However, that is barely an inconvenience when it comes to the superior performance of the DVR. There a re many, many features available via the OSD. Without a doubt, this is a five star DVR.

Can't complain about this one. It's a high quality HD-SDI model that does an excellent job. I had no problem using my old system's RG59 coaxial cable for the cameras to the DVR. No noise, iterference, or connection problems. THe recording just blows away my antiquate system ( I think my old camerws were like 380TVL or something close to that). Over time, I've watched how these video security systems have improved with technological advances and how the prices have actually gone down because of them. I purchased this one to upgrade to, because I can't think of anything else that the DVR or cameras would need or could improve upon (other than resolution greater than 2 megs) so I think this one will last a very long time. It's a keeper.

  Review by Sal Steward on Aug 25, 2013
Ok, call me an idiot, the term certainly does apply. When I purchased a local convenience store that is open 24 hours daily, I wanted to have a good video security camera system. The one that the previous owner had was antiquated at best and to be quite honest was useless except for the fact that he had a monitor at the counter to demonstrate to customers that they were under surveillance. I am not a security camera expert, but had been referred to Security Camera King by a friend of mine in the convenience store business. This DVR certainly sounded like the upgrade I needed because it could use the existing RG59 coaxial cable that had been there for years. So I ordered the DVR, connected the cables and it didn't work. I didn't realize it needed HD SDI cameras in order to work. When I realized how expensive they were I just about went into shock, but I had already purchased the DVR so I thought I might as well go head first and purchase four of the cameras. I can now say that the idiot is a genius. Boy was I glad I made that mistake. With the full HD-SDI system in place I couldn't believe the quality of the video recordings and the detailed coverage I get. One day I was working with the DVR and a customer came in. I was playing back some previous footage when the customer came to the counter to checkout and saw the playback on the monitor. They said, "Hey what did you do, video tape that with your video camera?" That's how good the quality is. I feel like a shmuck for not bothering to pay attention initially, but I am glad I made the mistake I did now. In the future, I will definitely pay more attention to detail. In the mean time, I am thoroughly satisfied with my new Security Camera King HD-SDI Security System.

This DVR and the whole security HD-SDI system is amazing technology that is long overdue and very useful for security camera applications. We have an old, nearly outdated video security camera system in our small store. The owner finally decided to invest in a new system and when he did, he wanted to upgrade to something that he thought would outlast the technological advancements for at least a few years. I think he found it. I helped him install this system and remove the old parts. It was really quite easy because we mounted the cameras in the same locations and used the same coaxial RG59 cable that we used for the old system so we didn't have to run any new cable. The only difference was the old cameras were the box type cameras and the new ones he purchased are domes but all it took was a few screws and they were ready to go.

The DVR records in such high definition resolution (1080p) that it is like watching a HD movie at home. The detail and clarity is totally amazing. The DVR comes with all the necessary parts and cables needed to hook up SATA drives, network connections, etc. and it even comes with its own USB mouse and infrared remote control. The best part about the DVR is that in addition to "local" operation, if the DVR is connected to the Internet, you can remotely access the DVR and cameras from your smartphone or home computer. The store doesn't have any elaborate network system (we do have broadband Internet) but it isn't need for this type of DVR anyway. I'm not real familiar with the NVRs and IP megapixel cameras, other than the fact that they were the only way to get this type of detail before, but I think you had to have a network for them to work. This operates just like a regular DVR based system and is simple to install and easy to use. I think Security Camera King not only won over a customer with my boss but he has been showing off the system to a lot of other store owners so I would anticipate some additional orders soon!

  Review by Mario Stanzas on May 31, 2013
I recently purchased the Security Camera King 4 Channel HD Series HD-SDI 1080p Realtime Security DVR and cameras. I use the DVR commercially as a replacement for my old system in my store. If you are used to using old (several years old) security systems you won't believe your eyes when you see one of these HD-SDI systems. Here are some of the things that I have noticed about using this DVR with the HD-SDI cameras. The DVR and the cameras are expensive, no doubt. If you are used to the prices for a 420TVL basic camera hold on to your hat, because there is no comparison here, but rightfully so. As much as the difference exists between the price of an HD-SDI DVR and even a standard D1 DVR, the quality and performance is just as great. I installed my own system, and since I already had an older system that this replaced, my cables were already in place. So, it did save me a lot of time and some money. However, if you have this system professionally installed (especially for DVRs with more channels) and it is replacing an old system, you will save a lot of money on the installation because the cables need not be run again. Basically, if you are familiar with the network IP megapixel cameras systems, this appears the same as those. However, it doesn't require a network or Internet to use, but it can be connected to the Internet for remote access. Once again, my DVR is only 4 channels but I can see where a network system with lots of cameras could start to cause potential problems in bandwidth and data capacity. As far as the features are concerned, this DVR has all the features you'll find on the standard models so I won't get into detail on that. I will say that this DVR has exceeded my expectations and any future purchases I make for my security camera system will definitely be at Security Camera King.
