What does DVR/NVR mean?

DVR (Digital Video Recorder) – Usually these devices have a BNC connection on the back of them and are limited up to 30 frames per second. These devices are out-dated technology and are not a good choice for Clarity.

NVR (Network Video Recorder) – These devices record from IP cameras. Depending on the NVR, a NVR can have the cameras connect directly to the NVR or a NVR records from the Cameras found on the network. Since the cameras and the NVR communicate with each other over Ethernet, High Output Bandwidth is required. Networks by Design, Recommends that any NVR devices stays separate from your Internet Network. Failure to due so, may result in corruption of data. NVR is a fairly newer technology compared to the DVR system. The reason why you would want a NVR system over a DVR system is for clarity reasons. The common results is when reading a car’s license plate. Since the NVR has better Clarity, you will be able to read a License plate from a NVR footage, making catching the thieves easier to track down.
