Check out our newest 16 Channel Pentabrid 1080p DVR, the PENDVR-ELE16M-AI3!

This is a feature-packed system built to handle up to 5 MP incoming resolution from COAX cameras and can encode this into 5-MN or 1080p. 5-MN is a special mode that uses 5MP but with a slightly reduced horizontal resolution. This is still very good image quality and higher even than 1080p, without as much workload or space used on the disk.

This recorder can utilize facial capture and recognition on 2x camera channels. This recorder features a face database capacity of 10 databases max with a total of 10,000 images across any and all databases.

As for other AI features, the PENDVR-ELE16M-AI3 comes with Smart Motion Detection +, also known as SMD+. This allows motion detection aided by AI to avoid triggers on targets that are not persons or vehicles. The result? Way more accurate alerting and fewer false alerts.

IVS perimeter protection via tripwire and intrusion box is also present. This feature, like Facial capture and recognition, is usable on 2x camera channels.

Another great feature of the PENDVR-ELE16M-AI3 is its ability to not only work with all 4 major video signal types, but it can also accept up to 8x 6MP IP cameras for a total of 24 Camera channels. That means the PENDVR-ELE16M-AI3 is a great option for those looking for a room to expand their CCTV system in the future, and utilize IP cameras as well.

With the AI search feature, you’ll be able to quickly look through footage for key events. That footage will be encoded using AI-aided h265 compression, allowing more footage, at higher quality, using less space than ever before!

The PENDVR-ELE16M-AI3 comes with 2x SATA ports, and the disks can be up to 16 TB allowing you to really utilize every available camera channel without worrying about running out of space.

High Definition Resolution

High Definition resolution is not just for TV graphics. It’s now being utilized for modern video surveillance systems and can be an important aspect for high-quality security cameras in order to provide a better quality recording, deliver better results for analysis, and ultimately make it clearer to see for everything from security to entertainment.

Remote Viewing Apps

The ability to view security camera systems remotely has transformed the video surveillance industry in powerful ways. Prior to this innovation, manned users were needed on location to view live feeds. Now, it’s possible to view live camera feeds digitally through network-connected devices. IP security cameras make this innovation possible. With remote viewing, anyone, from anywhere in the world, can visibly watch live camera feeds.
