32 Channel NVR with a high bitrate

More bandwidth for transmission and recording means higher quality. Camius offers some of the highest bitrate levels in an NVR or Network Video Recorder, The available bandwidth.

The NVR network video recorder supports ultra HD 4K, 2K, full HD 1080p video resolution, and audio and video surveillance camera recording. Follow this guide on how to add IP cameras to the Camius 32 channel NVR

Latest video and audio compression

Video compression is important when choosing a security system; it determines video clarity, hard disk usage, and network bandwidth. Camius 32 channel NVR supports H.265, considered the best video compression standard to optimize all three areas. The video quality of an H.265 stream is higher than that of an H.264 with the same settings. Using H.265, or H.265+, reduces the file size, which means less bandwidth is required to transfer a higher-quality stream. The reduced file size means a longer recording duration on the hard disk.
