CHAP 1. INTRODUCTION
1. Overview
Digital Video Recorder (DVR) is the latest in surveillance technology that offers full digital recording, remote
surveillance access, remote device control and more. The DVR system is a computerized surveillance
system that combines all the features of a traditional videotape system by integrating a color quad processor,
motion sensors, multiplexer, pan & tilt controls, time-lapse recorder and accessories to one unit. DVR
images are stored on a Hard Disk Drive (HDD). This not only preserves the picture quality
in its original state, but also allows fast data retrieval and larger storage capacity.
Unlike time-laps VCRs and low-end DVRs, Triplex DVRs allow playback of recorded video footage and
remote access through internet while in recording mode simultaneously. DVRs are used in mission critical
environments where security systems are on and it would be dangerous for the security officer to
turn off recording just to view recorded data.
Our new Triplex DVRs can meet any required request from the industry and the customers with high
quality and reliability, which will satisfy all of you and bring a big smile to you.
