With the ability to work with any of five different technologies, the latest Pentabrid security DVR from our Elite series could very well be one of the most capable 16 channel HD recorders available. Some customers tell us they are still happy with their Analog cameras and don’t feel like spending a ton of money to replace all of their cameras and recorder. There’s no need to do that with this DVR since it works with those old Analog cameras as well as HD-CVI, HD-TVI, AHD, and IP cameras. You can connect HD-CVI cameras up to 8MP, HD-TVI and AHD up to 5MP, Analog in 960H or IP Network cameras up to 8MP (4K). You’d be happy being able to use 16 cameras with a 16 channel DVR but here’s a little bonus. You can actually connect 16 HD over coax cameras AND 8 IP cameras at the same time for a total of 24 cameras. But wait . . . there’s more! You can use this DVR with ALL IP cameras up to 8MP each @96Mbps total bandwidth for a total of 24 IP cameras! When using IP or HD-CVI security cameras, you can record up to 8MP at 7fps, HD-TVI cameras can be recorded at 5MP@12fps, 3MP@15fps, 1080p and 720p @30fps, while AHD can be recorded in 5MP@12fps, 4MP/3MP@15fps, 1080p/720p @30fps and if those analog cameras are still cutting it for you, you can record in 960H resolution @30fps.
If you’re going to keep using Analog or one of the other formats that uses coaxial cable, there’s a good chance you won’t need to run new cable unless there’s a quality issue. While standard coaxial cable and a 12V power supply are all that are needed if you are using CVI, TVI, Analog or AHD, you’ll need a PoE switch and some Cat5/6 cable if you want to try the latest 4K IP Network cameras. The dual core processor and Linux OS combine to make this a powerful and stable device that performs efficiently. Thanks to features like IVS (Intelligent Video System), you can make this DVR truly yours by adjusting it to your specifications. You can utilize the IVS to set up features like Tripwire, Motion Detection or Tampering to trigger Email, Video Push and Recording notifications to be sent to your smart device and alert you of the event. Once everything is connected, feel free to travel and live without the need to be there. You’ll be able to view your cameras remotely from anywhere in the world with an internet connection on a PC, laptop, tablet, or smart device.
There’s room for two hard drives up to 8TB each for a total of 16TB and if you use the drop-down up above, you can choose from a variety of configurations to give you the storage space you need for your specific setup. When you purchase those at the same time as your DVR, we’ll save you time and stress by installing, configuring, and testing those before we ship your order. Using an H.265+ codec, this recorder is capable of a reduced bit rate transmission which in turn will minimize the storage usage and save you money in the long run.
