Embedded DVRs do not use a Windows® operating system. In fact, there is no software at all on the hard drive. All functions are contained (embedded) on software encoded computer chips. View in real time. Easy setup. The Embedded series Digital Video Recorders (DVR) operate just like a VCR. However, they have many features that make them more powerful and easier to use than even the most advanced VCR.
This DVR converts analog video (NTSC or PAL) to digital images, and records them on a hard disk drive. Using a disk drive allows users to access recorded video almost instantaneously without having to rewind or fast forward tape. There is no need to adjust tracking. You can freeze frames and forward or rewind without image streaking or tearing. Digital video can be indexed by time/date or events, and users can instantly view video after selecting the time/date or event.
All features can be controlled from the front panel or from any computer. The rear panel provides convenient connection for video and audio input/output.
