The 16-Channel 5MP NVR from Vivotek is a rack-mountable Linux based NVR that is equipped with two Gigabit Ethernet RJ45 ports providing network failover/load balance functionality to avoid the risk of recording loss. It is compatible with cameras up to 5MP and compresses recorded footage in H.264 or MPEG-4 codecs for high-quality playback. The front panel provides an easy backup button to back up or restore NVR configurations. Up to four HDDs (available separately) can be added to the NVR for a total storage capacity of up to 16TB (4 x 4TB HDDs). The three removable HDD trays in the front of the unit features 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 (available separately) can also directly control the NVR, and compatibility with the free Vivotek iViewer app allows for remote access to the NVR on handheld devices.
