A DVR (Digital Video Recorder) is connected directly to the CCTV camera, and often has a built-in video processing card, and integrated/attached storage device for recording the digital images on to. This differs from a NVR, that is not directly attached to the CCTV cameras and receives digital images from CCTV cameras with an in-built video card via a network cable.
In order to identify the appropriate recording options, shoppers should consider how long they want to save footage, and what resolution they want the footage in. Additionally, shoppers should consider how they want to retrieve footage. Digital video recorders (DVR) are among the most popular recording options available. A large capacity hard drive allows the DVR to store high-resolution footage for days, weeks, months, even years. DVRs also allow users to access footage from remote locations, and it is much easier to transfer footage from a DVR.
Date and Time Stamps
In order for your CCTV DVR system to be as useful as possible, footage needs a date and time stamp. If a business plans to use the footage for evidence purposes, an accurate time stamp increases the footage value. Not all DVRs come with a time stamper; however, timestamp generators are available as add-ons for nearly every system.
