2.1 TOP DIY RECORDING TERMS YOU
NEED TO KNOW!
CCTV:
DVR:
CIF:
PAL:
Closed Circuit Television. A television system, synonymous with security, and
used for private purposes, not for public or general broadcast
Common Intermediate Format, a recording resolution originally designed for
video conferencing. It is one quarter (1/4) the size of a standard definition TV
picture (352x288 PAL). CIF offers the most recording time but may not provide
the level of detail required.
D1:
D1 is a full size standard definition TV picture (704x576 PAL). It is the highest
recording resolution on some DVRs. D1 is 4 CIF frames arranged in a square,
and therefore takes approximately 4 times the recording space of a CIF picture
but offers better picture quality.
High Definition:
A term used to classify the image quality of TVs, DVD players, security systems and
more, and measured in pixels. Greater picture quality with more pixels giving better
detail that can be viewed. Video that is better quality than a standard definition
picture ie 720p and above is usually considered high definition.
HDMI:
A compact audio/video interface for transmitting uncompressed digital data.
Commonly used in HDTVs & monitors.
PRINTER CAMPUS
Digital Video Recorder. This is a device that records video signal digitally.
Normally this is on a large hard drive in the machine.
PAL is the television standard used primarily in the UK, EU and Australia. PAL
defines a standard television picture as 704x576 pixels at approximately 25
frames per second.
Resolution:
Refers to the sharpness and clarity of an image.
NVR:
Network Video Recorder. A device that utilizes digital IP video surveillance
streams initially processed at the camera then streamed to the NVRs for
storage or remote viewing. NVRs can be wired or wireless. Some hybrid NVRs
retain some of the features of a DVR with the network IP connection solely
from the NVR, not within the camera.
SDI:
Serial Digital Interface. A type of DVR capable of capturing, recording and
transmitting multiple streams of high definition surveillance video.
VGA:
A video output port on a DVR (usually blue in colour) which connects to
a compatible computer monitor or high definition television. It supports
significantly higher resolutions than the standard composite video outputs.

720P:
Is a broadcasting standard that displays the signal showing 1280 pixels
horizontal and 720 pixels vertically per image on screen. 720 demonstrates
the number of horizontal scan lines of the image display resolution.
1080P:
Is full High-Definition video that displays 1920 pixels horizontal and 1080
pixels vertically per image on screen. 1080 demonstrates the number of
horizontal scan lines of the image display resolution.

full HD and 4K (3840 x 2160 pixels or 8.29 Megapixels) is known as ultra HD.
Remote Viewing:
This feature allows you to remotely review and download the recorded video
footage on a Smartphone or Tablet.

is close to watching things live with the naked eye in real-time. It is the same
frame rate picture quality as your TV or DVR.
Frame Rate:
Is the number of images displayed per second: 25 frames per second is
considered the optium frame for smooth video playback.
Video Output:
Is a video port that enables video to be transfered through a connector that

Peer to Peer SwannLink:
Is a method of transferring data directly between two devices typically over the
Internet via a remote server.
eSATA:
Short for External Serial Advanced Technology Attachment. An extra storage
