A mobile DVR is a security system which links one or more cameras to a digital video recorder. It is main advantage is that it can record for much longer periods without the need to change tapes. The technology also means it is possible to review footage immediately while continuing to record.
Remote MonitoringIn the past, conventional CCTV systems could only transmit video to a single monitoring station, but that's not the case when you're using a DVR. Most digital video recorders now allow you to access your camera footage remotely over the internet. By connecting your analog cameras to a DVR, you can monitor video feeds in real time from any computer with internet access, and even from compatible cell phones or handheld PDAs.
Digital StorageNot long ago, most surveillance systems could only record to VHS cassette tape. Recording to tape has many drawbacks. For one, the tapes are bulky and take up a lot of space. Additionally, trying to search the recorded footage on analog tape can be a time-wasting nightmare. With DVRs, your footage is converted from analog to digital, so you can store significantly more video without the clutter, and it's much faster and easier to sort through archived footage.
Video CompressionTo make the most of available storage capacity, DVRs provide a number of different compression technologies. Common compression formats include Motion JPEG, MPEG-4, and H.264. With video compression, your files sizes are reduced as much as possible without compromising image quality.
Secure ConnectivityMost digital video recorders offer password protection so only authorized users are able to access the video footage from remote locations.
