Whether you are looking to upgrade your existing analog digital video recorder or shopping for a new 16 security camera system, you should definitely consider this 16 camera Mini Pentabrid DVR. It allows for simultaneous recording of up to 16 coax cameras that are analog or that use any of the latest HD over coax signal technology to send a 1080P video signal over traditional RG59 coax cable. Its Pentabrid DVR functionality (aka XVR) means that is compatible with all of the latest HD over coax signal types, i.e. HDCVI, TVI, AHD, and traditional standard definition CCTV cameras. You can even add 8 IP cameras over the network to this recorder as channels 17-24, which effectively makes this a 24 channel DVR. Here is a list of the different types of security cameras you can use with this XVR:

  • You can use a total of 16 BNC cameras of these types:
  • You can add 8 additional IP cameras up to 5MP

Connecting HD over coax makes it easy to setup a HD surveillance system without the hassles of networking involved in IP camera setup. Simply connect a HD camera to this DVR using a coax cable, and you can start viewing and recording.

This 16 channel security recorder is a standalone recorder and does not require a PC for use. It comes with an embedded Linux operating system that stays free of any viruses or Trojans. It comes with the same great user interface as all of our other DVRs, and uses H.264 encoding to record video at great quality while conserving hard drive space. It is easy to set up as well. Simply turn the DVR on and it will boot up to a grid of 16 cameras. Connect your cameras to the back of the DVR using the BNC video inputs, and as each camera is connected it will populate a square denoting video from that camera.

Although this is a mini DVR, it does not sacrifice on options. It's compatible with HDCVI Pan Tilt Zoom Cameras and analog PTZ cameras that use RS485. It is Mini only because it supports one hard drive and does not have alarm sensor inputs/outputs.

As all of our DVRs do, there are a plethora of features that are standard. Some of the most popular ones include:

  • Video based motion detection
  • Motion masking
  • Email alerts / Push alerts
  • Remote viewing
  • USB video backup

Be sure to choose HDCVI cameras for use with this DVR. They can be found labeled on our site with the following logo. You can also click this logo to shop for compatible HD security cameras.
