This 16 Channel Tribrid DVR is the latest in standalone Hybrid DVRs that allows for FIVE different types of CCTV camera signals to be recorded in one unit. It is a power unit that allows recording of 1080P video in Real Time, i.e. 30 frames per second.

Up until the recent past, hybrid security DVRs have been limited to recording IP cameras and analog security cameras only, and their capability in recording HD video has been unimpressive because of the low frame rates at 1080P. Our new line of hybrid DVRs have changed all that. Now with our Real Time Pentabrid DVRs (also called XVR) you can record your favorite HD over coax signals, plus analog cameras and IP cameras. Advances in HD video over coax technology such as HDCVI allows for megapixel resolution video to be transmitted over RG59/RG6 coaxial cable which has long been used in the CCTV industry for analog security cameras with BNC type connections. HDCVI opens up the possibility for large to small scale security installations to be migrated to HD security cameras at a cost far more economical than IP cameras. Specially because existing wiring can be utilized, saving the expenditure of rewiring. Simply, cameras and recorder need to be upgraded to attain high definition security footage.

With this Professional XVR you can use either of the following 5 signals types:

  • HDCVI - you can choose from our selection of HDCVI cameras here up to 1080P resolution. HDCVI allows for audio and PTZ controls to be sent over coax wire.
  • AHD - our 4 in 1 cameras allow output of this signal type, however AHD is not very popular in the USA.
  • TVI - our 4 in1 cameras allow output of TVI signals, but this signal does not provide audio capabilities over video.
  • IP Cameras - you can select from any of our IP cameras here up to 5MP resolution.
  • Analog Cameras - these are standard definition security cameras that you probably already have if you are upgrading to HD.

This XVR is versatile in its ability to record IP cameras. It has a powerful Dual Core processor that allows for Real Time 30fps video at 1080P per camera without skipping a frame. Plus you can record up to 5MP network cameras in real time as long as you are within the total allotted 96Mbps of recording bandwidth reserved for IP cameras. In its normal configuration, you can use 16 BNC cameras + 8 IP cameras. You can even switch all of the 16 BNC channels to IP camera channels to convert this recorder to a 24 channel NVR that is capable of recording 24 IP cameras within its 96Mbps bandwidth. That means this unit can function as a Security DVR or NVR all-in-one unit. For connecting IP cameras you will need a PoE Switch which can be found here.

We also carry a full size 16 Channel Tribrid DVR 8 SATA that supports up to 64TB of hard drive storage, which is ideal for users looking for months of video retention, or the ability to support up to 4K 12MP IP cameras.

This DVR has all the same great features as our NVRs and DVRs, and more. It also has a new user interface, and a secondary HDMI video out to connect a second monitor for spot in Full HD. In addition to the latest dual-core processor this DVR has a Linux OS for fast navigation through menus and video playback.

Let's not forget the capability to remotely view your security cameras over the internet using a smartphone, tablet or computer. Using our free remote view apps you can watch your cameras from anywhere in the world! You can also receive motion alert notifications to your mobile device and playback recorded video by simply clicking the notification. You can also get free email alerts, and setup the DVR to upload video off-site to a FTP for added security in case the recorder were to get stolen or damaged. You can also back up video to a USB flash drive or external USB hard drive, or eSATA drive.

It comes with free technical support by our expert staff for the life of the item.

Answer by: Tech Support on: 2016-10-10

Currently, I am using a Samsung SDE-5001N DVR. I am using Samsung SEB-1005R and SED-1001R cameras. Are the SEB-1005R and SED-1001R cameras compatible with the 16 Channel Tribrid DVR NVR 4K?

Question by: CR Willie on: 2017-11-10

The security cameras you mentioned use Samsung's proprietary connector that looks like a network connection. That is not a standard connection type in the video surveillance industry. You would need to find converter cables to convert your cameras to BNC video output and 12V DC jacks. This DVR accepts only BNC video connections.

Answer by: Tech Support on: 2017-11-13

I have a Samsung SDR-5102 system with 15 analog cameras. Will this system work with those cameras or are they of a different proprietary format?

Question by: Chuck on: 2018-03-12

Yes this digital video recorder is an XVR which supports analog cameras and will work with any analog security cameras up to 960H resolution.

Answer by: Tech Support on: 2018-03-12

Will my existing Hikvision CCTV 1080p/HD/2MP resolution cameras work with this DVR?

Question by: Chuck Briggs on: 2018-04-04

As stated in the product description, this DVR supports the following HD over coax camera signal types up to 1080P resolution:
c) AHD

TVI cameras are the norm from Hikvision. If you have such a signal type, then yest it would be supported. You have not provided the model of the cameras you have, thus we cannot definitively answer the question.

Answer by: Tech Support on: 2018-04-07
