This Pentabrid DVR from our Prime series of products is a replacement for our Tribrid and it adds two additional technologies that this DVR is capable of handling. This 8 Channel DVR can work with HD-CVI, HD-TVI, AHD, Analog and up to two IP cameras. All of these technologies, with the exception of IP, use coaxial cable and a standard 12V DC power supply. If you would like to take advantage of the two additional IP channels that support up to 4MP cameras, then you will need CAT5/6 cable to transmit that signal from the camera to the DVR. If you’re using HD-TVI, you can use 3MP, 2MP and 1MP while both HD-CVI and AHD support 2MP and 1MP input. Remember if you’re still using analog, you can still use them and upgrade to HD as needed.
This DVR is capable of a number of VCA (Video Content Analytics) that are some of the smart function including 2 channel line crossing detection, intrusion detection, and 1 channel of sudden scene change detection. Another smart feature is VQD or Video Quality Diagnostics where the quality of your video is monitored for changes like blurred images, excessive brightness, and color cast that is sometimes caused by fluorescent lights. When that happens, alarms or notifications that you set will be activated. With the self-adaptive HDTVI/HDCVI/AHD/CVBS signal input, the DVR automatically recognizes the format and makes the appropriate adjustments.
During your initial setup, you must be connected to a monitor and you have a couple of options for video output including simultaneous VGA and HDMI (up to 4K). If you don’t need a monitor you can use our remote viewing apps and watch and control your cameras from a desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone from anywhere in the world as long as you have an internet connection. There’s room for one hard drive that can hold up to 6TB of recording and if you’re interested in saving some time, use the dropdown menu above to choose the size you need and we will install, configure and test that before sending your DVR.
Your new DVR will include a 3 year warranty, FREE US based tech support and FREE remote viewing software.
