Network Video Recording

A network video recorder (NVR) is a software program that records video in a digital format to a disk drive, USB flash drive, SD memory card or other mass storage device. An NVR contains no dedicated video capture hardware. However, the software is typically run on an existing network infrastructure and expanded as needed.

Network video recorders are distinct from digital video recorders as their input is from a network rather than a direct connection to a video capture card or tuner. Video on a DVR is encoded and processed at the DVR, while video on an NVR is encoded and processed at the camera, then streamed to the NVR for storage or remote viewing. The DVR utilized for surveillance and security system needs can be accessed remotely through a PC by connecting to a LAN network or the internet. By networking these security feeds, security is boosted by making all digital surveillance video feeds available from anywhere.

Setting up a NVR system is not complicated. With the capacity to view all of the security camera footage from one centralized application, and the ability to record and play back video feed from an integrated workstation or via the web, managing a video surveillance system couldn't be easier.

With more than 20 years' experience working with the Andover Integrated System Platform, Advanced Control Corp. can transform your networked digital video surveillance cameras and servers into an enterprise class video surveillance system.

The advantages of hard-disk recording via a network video recorder are:

  • Only purchase the server space for camera recording as it is required and add it as your system expands
  • Integrates on to the Andover Controls Building Automation Platform
  • Scalable, expands your recorder features and capacity as you need it
  • Can be enhanced to include video analytics that are custom-designed to suit your business needs
  • Can be configured to record both Network IP cameras and conventional analog-type cameras
  • Ability to record and play back multiple cameras simultaneously with increased speed
  • Older recordings are automatically written over as the disk fills up
  • Available motion detection mode stores large increments of time on a standard hard disk
