The DVR states “simultaneously recording an additional 16 digital channels of a higher resolution of up to 2MP (1080P) recording..” Does this mean that each camera has a max of 2MP, or if I don’t have every port filled with 2MP cameras can I use some 3MP cameras and record full quality?

This DVR can record 16 Analog cameras up to D1 resolution and you can add 16 IP cameras and record at 2MP (1080p) resolution at 7FPS if you use 16 of them 

 This DVR is capable of handling 120 FPS for the digital channels @ 1080p, or 240 FPS @ 720p or 480FPS @ D1.

 

Thanks

Hey Jesus I appreciate the reply

Does that mean I can record 11 cameras at 10FPS? Also, can it handle 3MP cameras at all, and just record an overall lower frame rate, or will their quality be cut down to 2MP?

Basically I am wondering if the 120fps has to be shared between all of the cameras, because 7fps for 16 cameras isn’t that great. I would like at least 12, preferably 24, per camera.

Correct, Hybrid DVRs are only capable of handling 120FPS for the 16 digital channels. In reality if you need more frames then you might be better using an NVR. They can record up to 5MP without FPS restriction, the only thing you need to pay attention is the incoming bandwidth. These NVRs only support 256MPS. so that will get shared throughout all of the channels of the NVR. So in a 32CH NVR you can set each camera at 8MBPS each at 30FPS. This is not ideal though because is a lot of bandwidth and it could potentially decrease the ability to operate the unit through the web or remotely.
