A common trend within the security industry is to sell products based on price and often times you will notice that Digital Video Recorders will have very limited capabilities and connection options.
Here is a prime example of what you should expect when purchasing a professional grade surveillance recorder. This DVR offers 2 HDMI outputs, as well as a VGA and BNC output to display your cameras. Many lower end DVRs on the market offer one output. This unit allows you to use all 4 outputs at the same time. This is handy for customers looking to use several monitors to watch their cameras.
The system comes with 2 Gigabit Network Ports which allows you to keep your IP cameras on a separate local network. There is also an eSata connection for additional storage capacity, this besides the 8 hard drive capacity built into the DVR already. This means that out of the box your can have as much as 32TB of storage without even using the eSATA connection.
The NVR also offers loop out connections. This is ideal for customers that would like to display individual cameras onto separate monitors by using the loop on connection direct to a monitor.
Additional features such as 4 channels of audio, alarm inputs and outputs help make this DVR one of the best Hybrid machines on the planet.
