Introduction


What is a DVR?

DVR stands for digital video recorder. Digital video recorders run on
computers and are equipped with one or more video capture cards, that
record and compress video (and audio) to a hard
-
drive based storage

medium.

Reliability

Digital security solutions, like the
RapidOS DVR
, offer reliability because
these solutions are based on computer hardware and software. Digital
security solutions require less pieces working together, thus making it less
prone to wea
r and tear. Video can be also stored directly onto hard drives
without much hassle.

Reduced Maintenance Costs

Digital security hardware is designed as a self
-
contained unit, eliminating
the need for quads, switchers, multiplexers, time
-
lapse VCRs, motion
detectors and remote monitoring devices. With fewer pieces needed to
work together, it enables such digital solutions to be supported and
maintained by less people. Digital solutions also allow most diagnostics,
updates and adjustments to be done remotely,

thus reducing overall costs.

Constant Quality

Digital security solutions are very stable and reliable as a medium for
video storage. You wouldn't have to worry about video quality degradation.

More Efficient

With digital security solutions, you do not ne
ed to change and replace
tapes. You do not need to clean recording heads to ensure correct
recording. Digital security solutions saves you time and money, because
you can overcome serious problems associated with failing to carry out
some of the tasks you
need to do for legacy systems. Moreover, while
quads and switchers make recording multiple cameras possible, cameras
are recorded one at a time in timed segments. With digital security
solutions, you can record all cameras simultaneously. You can even
reco
rd, playback, do live view and backup simultaneously with Hawkeye.

Flexible Network Monitoring


RapidOS DVR


Network cameras offer remote monitoring from anywhere in the world.
Because you can monitor from anywhere, you need not hire a permanent
in
-
house staff to sit a
nd watch at the installed base. You also eliminate
costly in
-
house cable runs. Digital security solutions also offers centralized
monitoring of all cameras.
