The Pelco DX4808HD 16-Channel Hybrid Video Recorder (2 TB) allows you to record detailed images from your existing megapixel analog cameras, while offering you the ability to integrate up to 8 additional IP cameras or encoders to create a highly secure environment. Capable of recording from up to 16 cameras, this HVR delivers performance that is suitable for use in retail and financial institutions, corporate structures, high-value merchandise areas, and lobbies.

A handy CPU resource meter is included so that you can keep an eye out for potential problems and minimize system downtime.
