Nothing provides perimeter coverage in business or residential applications better than an 8 camera outdoor DVR system with DVD burner. In fact, these systems are great for use in just about any outdoor application and with a DVD burner, you can save copies of your video files for archiving or to give to police or insurance companies.

Security Camera King offers a full line of security camera equipment, including four different 8 camera outdoor DVR systems packages. We recognize the fact that everyone’s situation is different, possibly requiring a different camera at each point or some other additional feature. Therefore, we have put together these systems on our web site in such a way as to allow you to make different selections even for the system packages. Some changes can be made at no additional cost, while others may be made at a nominal cost compared to individually buying each component.

Each of these packages includes a DVR (Digital Video Recorder) with an on-board DVD writer and a USB thumb drive. The DVRs utilize H.264, the latest CODEC (COmpression/DECompression) utility, used to reduce the size of digital video files so that longer video recording times can be realized without sacrificing image quality. In addition, our DVRs feature a Linux Operating System (OS), a built in Web server, and two-way audio available over the Internet. This allows the system to be monitored over the Internet, Smartphones, or even have email alerts programmed to automatically notify you on different events (triggers).

Not only can these 8 camera outdoor DVR systems with DVD burner packages be monitored over the Internet, but nearly every function of the DVR can be controlled over the internet as well. This even includes multiple user functionality via the Internet. Or if you choose to use a local monitor, these units support HDMI, VGA, and BNC video outputs, and use of several monitors simultaneously.

Our line of DVRs featured in our 8 camera outdoor DVR systems with DVD burner packages can be operated easily with a standard USB mouse. In addition, the DVRs feature easy operation and control of Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) cameras whether you use the supplied GUI software or operate your system via Internet Explorer over the internet.

To complete the functionality of our 8 camera outdoor DVR system with DVD burner packages, the DVR also has an on-board DVD-RW (DVD-RWs can record and erase and record again if desired on one DVD-RW disk.) Using the DV-RW, you can copy any of your recorded video (and/or audio) from your DVR’s hard drive to a DVD. The digital video file that you copy to the DVD can be displayed on just about any personal computer and many of today’s DVD players. Contact one of our security experts today for more information or to make a purchase.

Last, but certainly not least, each one of the 8 camera outdoor DVR system with DVD burner packages offered by Security Camera King comes with a full 3 year warranty on the DVR and a full 1 year warranty of the cameras and accessories.

In addition, these systems are easy to install and operate. However, if should you have any difficulty at all with installation or operation, our trained professional technical support staff will provide as much remote assistance as possible including any training that you need to use your new security system.

8 Camera Outdoor DVR System with DVD Burner

The 8 camera outdoor DVR system with DVD burner is a popular security system choice for applications requiring durable day and/or night outdoor security and surveillance. There are many things to consider when purchasing an 8 camera outdoor DVR system with DVD burner so let’s examine a few.

First, the 8 camera outdoor DVR system with DVD burner may also be referred to as an 8 channel outdoor DVR system with DVD burner. Usually, security camera systems refer to each camera as a “channel” hence the terms 8 channel system, 8 channel receiver, and so forth.

The cameras must be an outdoor rated type. This means it can withstand the forces of nature including extended inclement weather. Cameras of this type are normally rated as IP66 or IP67. This rating is the Ingress Protection rating based on an international electrical standard that specifies what the camera is protected against. The first digit following the IP, in this case “6,” means the camera is dust tight, that no dust can enter the casing or components of the camera. The second digit refers to the protection against water. A rating of “6” means the camera is protected from ingress of powerful water jets and a rating of “7” means the camera could be submerged in water up to 1 meter in depth.

Generally, outdoor cameras will be either night/day vision cameras or infrared (IR) cameras. Night/day vision cameras have a sensitive CCD sensor that can produce images in very low light conditions. Infrared cameras contain a series of IR emitting LEDs that surround the camera lens to illuminate otherwise dark or no light conditions. IR illumination is invisible to the human eye however the camera’s CCD sensor can detect IR radiation. Therefore, the LEDs work like invisible lighting, flooding the absolutely dark target area with a beam of light undetectable to the human eye.

Also, an 8 camera outdoor DVR system with DVD burner may utilize wireless camera technology. This means that the cameras transmit their image to a receiver using either the 2.8 GHz or 5.8 GHz band without the need for transmission cables. This can be incredibly beneficial in placing cameras in locations that are difficult to reach using cables or in concealed areas. A wireless 8 camera outdoor DVR system will also need an 8 channel receiver.

Regardless of the type of camera, this system will also include a Digital Video Recorder or DVR. The DVR is basically the same device as the hard drive in a personal computer. Once the camera has transmitted the signal to the system, the DVR stores the images or video in a file on the hard drive. Generally, an 8 camera outdoor DVR system with DVD burner will require a high speed DVR along with some sort of compression technology.

Since 8 cameras are producing video at once, the incredibly large file size of the digital video would exhaust the useful space of even the largest capacity DVRs. So, file compression technology, software or hard-wired circuit boards, are used to compress the file size while maintaining the image quality while maximizing hard drive capacity. The DVR saves the image until the disk is filled and when it reaches its capacity, the DVR continues recording over previously saved data.

One of the benefits of an 8 camera outdoor DVR system with DVD is the DVD recorder itself. These systems normally contain on-board or internal DVD writers. These are excellent for backing up image files. When a DVR is getting full, a DVD can be burned for archiving purposes before the DVR begins to re-write itself. Also, another added benefit of a DVD writer is to produce back-ups or copies of certain image “footage” to provide to police departments or when needed as evidence.

Understanding the options available for an 8 camera outdoor DVR system with DVD recorder will help you make an educated, useful purchase that will fulfill your security and surveillance needs.
