The Vivotek NR8401 16-Channel 1RU Network Video Recorder is a Linux based surveillance solution that is equipped with two Gigabit Ethernet RJ45 ports providing network failover/load balance functionality to avoid the risk of recording loss. The front panel provides an easy backup button for you to backup/restore NVR configurations, which is very useful for a rackmount chassis system. Up to 4 HDDs (sold separately) can be added to the NVR for a total storage capacity of up to 12TB (3TB x 4). Three removable HDD trays are available in the front of the unit, with hot-swap functionality for easy replacement, and support the RAID 0/1/5 application for video data protection and mirroring.

 A CMS server running VAST software can also directly control the NR8401, and compatibility with the iViewer application allows for remote access to the NVR on handheld devices. By integrating all of the components together using the NR8401 NVR, network cameras, VAST, and iViewer software, you can realize a fully-featured and robust next-generation surveillance system. 

The NVR provides stable and efficient system operation under a wide range of recording/ network management/ system settings. It supports all Vivotek camera models, including the 5 Mp and fisheye cameras.

Note: VAST Central Management Software is not included.
