Click here to understand the concept of Network Video Recorder
A NVR (network video recorder) is a software that records video data from IP cameras and transfers it to the hard drive of your computer. The video can be recorded on your SD card, memory stick and so on. This recorder acquires video data through an ethernet port. This is instead of having a dedicated video capture card (as in DVR). The software runs on a machine with windows, MAC or Linux operating systems. Your Network Video Recorder software will specify the operating system it works on.

These are entry level Network video recorders. These recorders are suitable to be used as a group of eight IP cameras. These give you internet connectivity to watch live pictures. However, these recorders struggle when you want to view recorded video footage. For serious applications, we recommend a Windows based recorder.

This works flawlessly for up to 64 IP cameras. It has an efficient internet connectivity. It can handle multiple display screens and allows you to create matrix of cameras for different display screens. It can be used as a Hybrid recorder if a video capture card (such as GV800) is installed. Hybrid systems allow you to use both analogue and IP cameras on the same system.
