This 32 Channel DVR can support five different security camera signals on the market. The unit can connect to the latest security cameras without having to switch or throw out your old cameras and cabling. If you're considering building an entirely new system, or just upgrade your current recorder this DVR will exceed your expectations. If you need more than the maximum 40TB video storage, then you'll want to check out our 32 Channel Enterprise DVR that can accomodate more storage space.

This 32 Channel Digital Video Recorder is also part of our Pentrabrid security camera recorder classification known as XVR, which means it can record up to five different types of video signals. You can record the following signal types with this XVR:

  • HDCVI - you can choose from our selection of HDCVI cameras here up to 4MP resolution. The HDCVI signal allows our PTZ cameras to send pan tilt and zoom controls over the coax video wire to the DVR without needing extra wiring for RS485.
  • AHD - Supports up to 4MP AHD cameras. Our 4 in 1 cameras allow output of this signal type, however AHD is not very popular in the USA.
  • TVI - Supports up to 4MP TVI cameras. Our 4 in1 cameras allow output of TVI signals.
  • IP Cameras - you can select from any of our IP cameras up to 8MP or 4K resolution. This XVR supports up to 128Mbps of IP camera encoding bandwidth.
  • Analog Cameras - these are standard definition security cameras that you probably already have if you are upgrading to HD security cameras.

This 32 Camera XVR supports any combination of the above signal types. Each channel can be set to it's corresponding signal mode, see here how it is done. To deploy IP cameras you must modify the settings for each channel you want to host an IP camera. IP cameras require a compatible PoE switch for power and data or a local area network, with individual power adapters to connect and record on this unit.

The biggest detail here is that this DVR supports up to the 32 channel capacity, a full 32 IP camera channels. Don't be fooled by competitor recorders that only support 2, 4, or 8 IP cameras, leaving you stuck if you decide to upgrade all of your cameras. As long as your total IP camera recording bandwidth is 128mbps, this XVR DVR can function as a NVR over the network.

With this unit you can individually select and configure the encoding resolution, frames per second, and bit rate for each channel. This enables you to save storage as needed for your application. You can also set highly customized recording schedules for each channel based on your own preferences to save even more hard drive space. The customizing options are limitless. Paired with a powerful processor featuring the latest H.265+/H.265 encoding you can expect to save up to 90% of storage compared to H.264 when utilizing the updated technology.

While we're discussing recording capabilities, it is important to mention that this XVR features video analytics. Regardless of the signal type, on the first 16 BNC channels it provides Tripwire and Intrusion detection capabilities. You can fine tune video event detection using the AI that this DVR offers. On all IP camera channels, it is compatible with our IP cameras with video analytics. While we can guarantee compatibility with IP cameras we offer, you can also use some third-party cameras from our IP camera compatibility list.

Also supported is two-way audio talk functionality to connect a microphone and speaker to enable a camera to act as a remote intercom. The 4 audio inputs allow you to connect a security camera microphone.

Adding a security camera with microphone is easy to any of our DVRs as they support audio over the HDCVI signal, meaning you can use a security camera with built-in mic to capture video + audio over the coax wire.

Backing up video is also very easy. You can backup to a USB drive or over the network to a computer. Remote viewing your security cameras is easy with our Free Apps for iOS, Android, Windows and Mac.

This high definition DVR supports up to four 10TB hard drives for a total of 40TB of storage; you can select the suitable hard drive size above for your security needs.

On your 32 CH DVR NVR Tribrid, is the IP Cameras connected through the network or do that have to be connected through BNC with an adapter?

Question by: Shane on: 2016-06-16

You would connect IP cameras from your network switch or router. BNC inputs on the back are for connecting analog security cameras or hdcvi cameras. IP cameras would need to be connected to a PoE switch first, and then this DVR would also connect to that switch or another switch on the same network.  Please note this is not a PoE NVR where there are RJ45 network jacks on the back for connecting IP cameras only.

Answer by: Tech Support on: 2016-06-16

Are any IP cameras compatible with this Tribrid system? In particular, we use GeoVision IP cameras and just want to ensure these cameras will be compatible with this DVR.

Question by: Phil Cardone on: 2016-07-12

All of the IP cameras we sell are compatible with our Tribrid DVRs. Third Party ONVIF ip cameras are compatible as well, however ONVIF does not guarantee passing of all functions like motion detection, audio or PTZ controls. Depending on the 3rd party manufacturer, they lock our functions on their equipment, prohibiting use with other equipment. There are a lot of driver negotiations involved with IP cameras, and not every brand keeps up with making sure their cameras are compatible with every NVR out there. You can also use our ip camera compatibility list for reference.
We have heard positive feedback from customers using Geovision cameras purchased Jan 2015 or after being compatible with our Tribrid recorders and NVRs, however there is no passing of motion events to the recorder due to the camera firmware.

Answer by: Tech Support on: 2016-07-12

I have 14 cameras of this type:
samsung sdc-9441bcn

Can I use these cameras? which cameras do you recommend as I have 20 camera systems.

Question by: PK on: 2018-03-23

Yes the samsung sdc-9441bc will be compatible with our 32 channel XVRs. You can also use any of the 4-in1 security cameras and hdcvi cameras we carry.

Answer by: Tech Support on: 2018-03-23

How does the Windows software work? Can I see a video example of it?

Question by: Wes Craig on: 2018-04-23

You can watch videos of how our camera software works by view demo videos here.

Answer by: Tech Support on: 2018-05-04

If we purchased a Tribrid 32 channel DVR and a Tribrid 16 Channel DVR. would we be able to network them together, if they resided in different areas of the same building?

Question by: James on: 2018-07-31

Please note two DVRs or NVRs cannot be connected to act as one unit, however they can be viewer together using our client software on Windows or Mac as shown here.

Answer by: Tech Support on: 2018-08-06

Since there is a single RJ-45 can you use IP cameras with a PoE switch and connect the XVR to the network at the same time? Do I need a passive switch between the XVR and the PoE switch?

Question by: Matt Woodside on: 2019-04-24

Yes you can add any of our ip camera offerings with our DVR recorders to setup a mix of coax based BNC cameras and IP cameras. You do need a PoE switch to power the IP cameras, and the DVR can be connected to a router that the PoE switch is connected to. In addition, many of our PoE swithes feature 2 uplink ports to allow connection of the switch directly to the DVR or XVR, and to the rest of the network.

How to prevent timeout when viewing using Internet Explorer?

Question by: S Wilson on: 2019-08-23

There is no way to prevent timeouts on the web browser. We recommend using our central monitoring software to view our security cameras from a PC or Mac.

Answer by: Tech Support on: 2019-08-25

Is this DVR compatible with PTZ cameras? How would one ensure all settings are correct so as to have the DVR control it?

Question by: Andres Victoria on: 2020-02-24

The DVR has RS485 connectors on the back to connect a third party PTZ. If you are using one of our HD PTZ cameras, and a RG59 cable from a roll, then you don't need RS485 as the PTZ signal is sent over the video using the HD camera signal.
