Surveillance Video Recorders

Security Video Recorders

Security video recorders provide a means of safely capturing surveillance video and storing it for future review. Some industries require archiving surveillance footage for a certain time period so its crucial to determine your requirements beforehand. This determines not only how much drive space you require, but also how high of a resolution you want the cameras to be.

DVRs vs NVRs
DVRs
  • Can use without Internet connection
  • No separate power source required for cameras, single cable run supplies data and power
  • Compatible with older analog security cameras
  • Not subject to vulnerability of network
  • Not as many advanced features as NVRs
  • Usually don't have cloud storage options
NVRs
  • Wireless networking options
  • Minimal cabling involved
  • No hard wired network connection required
  • State of the art software features
  • Can monitor cameras in offices across the country without having to pay for separate networks
  • Dependent on network
  • Signal interference may cause loss in video quality
  • Increases burden on network bandwidth

We supply both Digital Video Recorders (DVR)s and network video recorders (NVR)s for recording surveillance footage. The DVR recorder provides a wide range of advanced functions including search features. It can be configured to store data for up to a certain time before overwriting old data. This type of security video recorder allows real time viewing without the latency time of IP based systems.

Network Video Recorders (NVR)s, on the other hand, contain no dedicated video capture hardware. Generally used in IP based systems, this type of security video recorder records video images in digital format, receiving data through a wireless network from IP cameras. The NVR security video recorder doesn’t have to be in the same location as the cameras, since it receives the data wirelessly.
