NVR vs DVR. How do we choose the recorder type!

NVR vs DVR system: How They Process Data

The main distinction lies in how each handles video data from cameras. A DVR uses analog cameras that transmit video footage directly to the DVR unit via coaxial cables for local storage and processing. In contrast, an NVR works with IP cameras that compress and transmit video over the network to the NVR. This allows the NVR to centrally process and store footage across multiple IP cameras.
