DIGITAL VIDEO RECORDERS
Digital CCTV Video Recorders
Images captured by CCTV cameras can of course be viewed live, but there is much value in recording these images so that incidents can be replayed later showing those involved and events in detail.
Digital Video Recorders (DVRs) can capture these events in digital form far more effectively than tape-based equipment.
DVRs fall into two varieties. PC-based DVRs and so-called “dedicated” or non PC-based DVRs. Both types have their advantages. PC-based DVRs in general offer offer greater flexibility and ease of use. They are often simple to access from an existing computer network (LAN) meaning live and recorded images can be seen easily by authorised staff from their own PCs and even from a remote PC. Blitz security uses both types of DVR depending on the customers need and budget.
