  • What is the difference between a digital video recorder and a Network Video Recorder?

A Digital Video Recorder (DVR) and a Network Video Recorder (NVR) both record video, but they work differently:

DVR: Digital Video Recorders are used with analog cameras, They connect to cameras using coaxial cables.
NVR: Network Video Recorders, like Camius NVRs, work with digital IP cameras. These cameras send already-digitized video over a network (usually Ethernet), allowing for higher video quality and easier installation. Camius offers indoor and outdoor NVR camera systems for businesses and home security.

Additionally, Camius DVRs are hybrid devices, meaning they can function as both DVRs and NVRs. This hybrid capability saves home and business owners money and effort by allowing them to continue using existing analog cameras while also adding IP cameras over the network.

Furthermore, Camius offers the option to upgrade to 4K analog cameras, enhancing the overall video quality without needing to replace the entire system. This flexibility makes Camius DVRs a versatile and cost-effective solution for various security needs.

  • Which is better, NVR or DVR?

Generally, NVR recorders like those from Camius are better than DVRs for most modern security needs:

  • Higher Quality: Camius NVRs offer superior video quality with support for high-definition and ultra-high-definition resolutions.
  • Easier Installation: Camius NVRs use Ethernet cables, which are simpler to run and can also power the cameras using Power over Ethernet (PoE), reducing the need for separate power supplies.
  • More Features: Camius NVRs support advanced smart functions, high capacity hard drives, highly customizable  camera settings and more.

However, Camius hybrid DVRs provide a unique advantage. They can function as both DVRs and NVRs (in XVR mode), allowing you to continue using existing analog CVBS, AHD, CVI and TVI cameras while also adding IP cameras over the network. This flexibility saves money and effort, especially if you want to upgrade to higher quality 4K analog cameras without replacing the entire system infrastructure by keeping the existing coaxial wiring. This makes Camius DVRs a versatile and cost-effective option for various security needs.
