This 8 Channel 4MP Tribrid DVR is a powerful DVR that allows the capability to use up to 4MP cameras over RG59U coax cabling. To attain resolution of 4MP or higher required using IP cameras, but recent advents in HDCVI camera technology have made it possible to send 4MP and 4K video over good quality coax wire. If you are unfamiliar with HDCVI cameras, they are a new type of security camera that can send HD video over regular coax cable. They are great for use in upgrading existing systems, or in new systems where the fussy networking required for IP cameras is too difficult for you. If you are looking for a complete system be sure to check our HD security camera systems page.

This 8 Channel Tribrid DVR is the one of the best the security industry has to offer at this time for a small form factor with one hard drive support. It can accept a total of 12 cameras (8 BNC Cameras + 4 IP Cameras). If you are looking to upgrade your existing security camera system or building a new system but want to mix and match camera types, then this 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 8 BNC cameras, and 4 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 4 IP cameras from CCTV Camera World. This DVR will support resolutions up to 8MP for IP cameras, with a total 48 Mbps network camera recording bandwidth. For example, if the 4MP IP camera offers 30fps video, this DVR will record at 30fps.

This mini HDCVI DVR supports one hard drive up to 8TB, and one add-on microphone. It does not sacrifice on any of the features or reliability that our larger more expensive DVRs offer. You can use PTZ cameras of either HDCVI or IP camera type with this DVR.

This 8 channel high definition DVR has a high speed processor with 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.

All of the DVRs we sell include tons of features, most important of which is video based motion activated recording that you can use to save hard drive space and record only when motion is detected by the intelligent software on this DVR. The motion feature can also notify you on your phone or tablet when activated, and you can also playback video from your phone or tablet.

I own this DVR. Unfortunately I did not buy from you guys. I wish I had. But anyway, I need some information on audio connection. I saw the blog on the connections, but I'd like to know what is the difference between HDCVI and local under the boxes that are to be checked for the Audio? I have connected the microphone to the rg59 Siamese witb a 3 way BNC hoping that it would carry the signal for audio along with video on the same cable. I read that it could and the option seems to be there, but I'm totally not getting anything to work

Question by: Nick Rice on: 2016-11-15

You need a HDCVI with integrated mic to send audio over the ENCODED HDCVI signal. A three way splitter will not work.
