Most Digital Video Recording (DVR) systems software support the Pelco Protocols which effectively means that the Zoom Camera features and functions can be controlled directly from the DVR, via LAN and/or Internet.

Digital Video Recorders (DVR Systems)
Please note that some customers become confuse when dealing with CCTV camera specially with regard to recording. A CCTV Camera is not a recording device as such and therefore needs to be connected or interfaced by RG-59 coaxial cable from each CCTV camera to a DVR System. HCS can supply pre made 20m length plug and play cables or professional cables up to 200m in lengh with connectors. Hidden Camera Surveillance can of course supply and install DVR systems in all shapes, sizes and models from 4, 8, 16 and 32 Channel Digital Video Recording Systems.
A higher quality camera such as the models featured on this and other pages are 540 to 600 TV Lines. To appreciate the quality of a high resolution camera, the DVR system equally ought to have high resolution recording capability. Recording speed is important but even more important is the DVR compression standard. MPEG4 is now older technology whereas our H.264 Digital Video Recorder Systems are not only much higher quality in terms of playback recording but use up to 40% less HDD capacity. Older MPEG4 technology can leave what we call a "mosaic effect" when playing back a recording, specially noticeable with moving objects whereas our H.264 DVR systems do not leave a mosaic affect and no ghosting associated with moving objects.
