Powerful yet compact 8 Channel DVR that offers more features than larger DVRs but at half the price. It has a powerful processor and Linux OS that allows high quality recording. The only feature that it does not have compared to its larger sibling is the capacity to hold 8 hard drives; this DVR can support up to 1 drive for a total of 10TB of storage.

BNC Camera Channels

The DVRCF08X security camera recorder supports up to 4MP HD security cameras over Coax. It records BNC coax cameras at 4M-N resolution in 15fps. It also supports older analog technology if you are looking for an upgrade path for replacing older technology while utilizing existing cabling infrastructure. Other signal types this recorder can record are TVI and AHD up to 4MP.

IP Camera Channels

This feature packed 8 channel DVR also allows for capturing IP camera channels over a network or PoE equipment up to an additional 4 channels. This means the DVRCF08X is technically a 12-channel recorder. You can even switch BNC channels to IP for a 2-in-1 DVR/NVR solution. It can even record at a higher resolution all the way up to 5MP for IP channels. After setting up IP cameras you can record and utilize BNC and IP cameras all with one convenient recorder. We can only guarantee compatibility with IP cameras purchased from CCTV Camera World.

There are also 8 audio inputs that allow audio to be recorded and synched with video from each of the first eight cameras. There are 2 video outputs, HDMI, and VGA so you can operate two different monitors simultaneously showing the same picture. Hooking up a big screen HD TV is easy with the 1080P HDMI connector.

This HDCVI / IP / Analog Camera Tribrid DVR is truly the state-of-the-art in security DVR technology. It has a powerful dual core embedded processor, and runs on a Linux operating system with easy to use point & click interface. This is NOT a PC based DVR which is subject to viruses and hacking. This is a standalone DVR built for only one purpose - to be the most reliable surveillance video recorder in the world in its price range.

All of our new DVRs utilize the latest H.264/H.265 hardware based video encoding to bring great quality video while maximizing hard disk storage capacity. Accessing the DVR from the internet is easy. Simply connect the DVR to a broadband internet connection. The built-in Web server allows you to perform almost every function of the DVR remotely with Internet Explorer, or common features with Google Chrome.

Free Central Management Software (CMS) is also included to allow you to centrally manage multiple DVRs or NVRs from CCTV Camera World simultaneously. Two-way audio over the network or Internet is also available using our two-way audio kit. So, not only can you hear what is going on, you can interact. This DVR supports up to 10 simultaneous remote users. With Dynamic DNS (DDNS) support, it is not necessary to have a static IP address on your network in order to remotely access this DVR. This saves you money, as most ISPs charge extra for a static IP address.

Having the ability to remotely view your system is great, but what if you are on the road and just can't monitor your system all the time. This is no problem with our DVRs highly flexible email and push notification capability. Just set up a standard POP email account like GMAIL and configure the system email you anywhere based on any criteria you choose. Many of our customers have alerts sent to their mobile devices for real time alerts. All of our DVRs support our FREE Remote Viewing Apps for watching your security camera sytem from popular smartphones and tablets.

Video can be easily downloaded from the DVR to a external hard drive or flash drive using the USB port. You can even download video directly to your Windows or MAC computer using our CMS software. If you worry about losing valuable footage in case of hardware failure or the DVR being stolen, video can be automatically uploaded by FTP to a server or NAS. You can even use one of our 8 channel NVRs as a live backup server to mirror the DVR. If you're interested in learning how you can setup a backup recorder, please read this guide.
