When looking into video surveillance systems, you will come across the network video recorder (NVR). Network Video Recorders are an important part of your IP video surveillance system—one that has replaced legacy digital video recorders (DVR). This appliance allows surveillance footage to be recorded and stored, both online and offline, to a hard disk, cloud, or any mass storage device.
Unlike DVRs, that work with analog cameras, NVRs integrate with internet protocol (IP) cameras. The IP cameras process the footage and then stream it to the NVR for viewing and storage. When comparing both systems, NVRs:
- Provide better image quality and store footage at a higher frame rate
- Can connect to the internet (enabling remote viewing) but can also operate on a closed circuit
- Are readily more scalable
- Require only one (1) cable for video, audio and power
Network video recorders can also include an integrated video management system (VMS). This comes with a long list of benefits such as: user-friendly interfaces, real-time monitoring and customized event alerts, advanced analytics, video search, greater camera compatibility, and integration with other systems such as access control and alarm systems, among many others.
