This Tribrid DVR is the best the security industry has to offer at this time for a small form factor. It is a 4MP HDCVI DVR with capability of accepting up to a total of 24 cameras (16 BNC Cameras up to 4MP + 8 IP Cameras up to 8MP). If you are looking to upgrade your existing security camera system or building a new system but want to mix and match HD security cameras, and IP cameras, then this 4MP HDCVI DVR is a perfect choice. It allows use of 3 different types of security camera technologies:

You can browse each of these security camera types by clicking on the linked bullet points above. This Tribrid DVR supports a lot of different recording configurations. It is definitely a workhorse, and with it completely maxed out, you can have 16 BNC cameras, and 8 IP cameras.

On every BNC input you can use up 4MP, 1080P, or 720P HDCVI cameras, and even analog cameras. The first BNC input does support one 4K HDCVI camera as well. You can record up to 15fps at 4K or 4MP, and up to 30fps on 1080P/720P/Analog.

If you connect the DVR to a PoE switch, you can also connect up to 8 IP cameras from CCTV Camera World. This DVR will support resolutions up to 8MP for IP cameras, with a total 96 Mbps network camera recording bandwidth. For example, if the 4MP IP camera offers 30fps video, this DVR will record at 30fps.

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.

As is true with all of our DVRs, this recorder also has the same plethora of features in addition to those mentioned above. 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.

Total 4 question(s)

my current dvr died. I have coaxial with power. I want to change out at least one camera to 4K. So I'm thinking about this triband dvr. Can I use a Poe switch and run the 4K over the coax without losing picture quality compared to cat5. The run is 60-70 ft.

Question by: Ty on: 2017-11-27

This HDCVI DVR accepts one 4K HDCVI camera on the first channel. We have some new 4K hdcvi cameras that are about to be published on the site. Using a 4K HDCVI camera, you can send video over coax cabling without the need for a PoE switch or a 4K IP camera.

You have to specify the hard drive size when choosing one of our DVRs.

If recording one 2K HDCVI camera at 30 frames per second to a 1TB drive, you will get about 22 days of continuous video recording. Two cameras recording to a 1TB drive, about 11 days. 16 cameras, about 1 day 9 hours.

There are several ways to record more video:

1) Larger total hard drive capacity. The 16 Channel 4MP Tribrid DVR supports 2 SATA Ports, 8TB each, for a total of 16TB.

2) Enable motion detection recording. You can set individual or all cameras to record in the event of motion detection. You have very flexible options where you can determine specific areas of a grid within a camera stream to trigger recording.

3) Record at a lower frame rate. You can specify individual or all cameras to record at a lower frame rate. 30 frames per second is considered real time, but recording at this frame rate might not be necessary. Recording a camera at a lower frame rate, such as 15 fps, still provides clear images and will cut the amount of storage space in half for that camera. A frame rate comparison can be found by clicking the following link:

4) Lower bit rate. Recording cameras at a low bit rate will cause a lower quality video stream/recorded video, however this will conserve hard drive space. Because of the degradation of image quality, this method is not recommended unless necessary.

Sub Stream vs Main Stream

All of our DVRs and NVRs have the option to record two streams - a Main Stream and a Sub Stream. This allows for the user to configure the Main Stream to record at a high resolution while keeping the separate Sub Stream set to record at a lower resolution. For more information on recording streams and how they relate to viewing your system remotely with the free phone app, view the following article/video:

Answer by: Tech Support on: 2018-03-14

I set the resolution to the highest setting for this DVR and now I can no longer get the monitor to come on when I turn everything on. It was working fine prior to changing that setting. Does it need a specific monitor, or a certain connection type?

Question by: Jon on: 2018-03-19

You would have to connect a monitor that would support the resolution you set the DVR to. Otherwise you can login to the DVR's web interface and change the display output to one that is supported by your monitor. Here's a guide on how to change your DVR's display output over the web.

Is the dvrcvpt164m capable of rack mounting?
What is the digital zoom capability of the dvr when used with the 4M2460 camera?

Question by: Eric Bradley on: 2018-07-18

The dvrcvpt164m cannot be rack mounted. You can learn more about digital zoom by watching the video Digital Zoom vs Motorized Zoom on our security camera systems page. Further the video sample located on the camera page shows the video quality to expect from the camera itself.
