DVRs are outdated. Your options are:

1. Upgrade to a TVI format - TVI DVRs cost less than analog DVRs, are backwards compatible with analog cameras, and can also record HD TVI cameras.

2. Replace your existing system with an IP system. This will require both new equipment and re-cabling with CAT5 ethernet cable. IP cameras are the way the industry has been headed for some time now and are your best option.

3. Get a Hybrid DVR/NVR. Hybrids allow you to use your existing analog/TVL resolution cameras but you'll be able to network in high def IP cameras.

16 Channel DVRs with Automatic Footage Backup

DVRs that automatically backup their footage onto your computer or NAS?

Monthly Cost: $0.

Now, that’s brilliant.

How 16 Channel Recording Devices Differ: Resolution.

CIF About the Quality of a 1990's Flip-Phone

This is CIF. Camera systems from Big Box Stores and other online retailers often record in CIF at 15 FPS.

We don't sell CIF DVRs.

CIF DVRs use decade old technology, because they are absolute junk. Don't buy them.

D1 / 960H Standard-Definition TV Quality

Our Econ D1 and Standard Pro 960H DVRs are 4x that resolution and twice as many frames per second.

Our Econ D1 and Standard Pro record in about standard TV quality.

The Econ is formatted for square screens and the Standard Pro is widescreen.

1080P Beautiful HD Video Footage

Our Networker and HD-SDI series record in beautiful 1080P video.

HD is great at identifying faces, but requires HD cameras.

Luckily, our Ambassador does some channels at 1080P HD and some at 960H widescreen TV, so you can transition to HD.

    Backwards Compatability.

    TVI is a HD over BNC cable solution that is Backward Compatible with Analog Cameras.It is perfect for upgrading to HD without having to replace wiring, but will not replace IP cameras as the dominant cameras of the future. TVI recorders can accept signal from TVI cameras (SCW, Samsung, TVT, and Hikvision make TVI cameras) or Analog cameras. TVI is a transitional technology to help people with already existing cable get higher resolutions. All new installations should use IP cameras and NVRs as IP can already do 5x the resolution as TVI.
