today we will explain what exactly are the differences between a DVR and NVR.
What is a DVR? and How it Work?
the term DVR stands for digital video recorder where the MPX signal from the security cameras are recorded MPX stand for megapixels over coax cable a DVR an analog system using coaxial cabling and connectors these are part of the lure X’s MPX security solutions Lorex DVR
systems can handle resolutions in both 2k and 1080p Lorex MPX DVRs are backward compatible with older analog cameras with lower resolutions from 300 to 900 TV lines but they can also support analog 720p and 960h resolution cameras many lord and VRS, on the other hand, can handle 4k 2k 1080p and 720p
What is NVR? How does it work?
NVR stands for network video recorder the video and audio signal is sent to the MDR from cameras that send the digital signal down the standard cat5 or cat6 Ethernet connection cable.
these are RJ45 plugs commonly used in home and commercial network systems
so while a DVR uses coax and NBR uses Ethernet cabling cable distances for MPX DVR systems can extend up to 300 feet for audio-video and power when using coax video only distances as high as 2,000 feet and VR system support lengths up to 800 feet per camera for video and 300 feet for audio-video and power
an NVR uses digital IP cameras IP stands for Internet Protocol this compliance with the Internet Protocol allows greater flexibility when conversing within a network
no matter how large or small these IP cameras are connected using a standard rj45 Ethernet connector that not only can transmit the signal but also supplies power to the camera this I called power over ethernet or POE
Why NVR is Best Then DVR?
our IP cameras send compressed or encoded data directly from the camera to the NBR where it is recorded Lorex 4k NVR also supports a wide range of IP cameras including those that are on biffed compliant a global industry standard for IP based security products a DVR system with MPX camera sends the video audio signal down coax and supplies power to the camera as well
this dual-purpose cable is called a Siamese cable one cable with two cable ends one for video and audio and one for the power it is important to note that all Lorex MPX DVRs and IP n VRS support both video and audio recording using one cable and both systems can record audio on all of the individual channels keep
Other Difference Between NVR vs DVR!
in mind that both DVRs and NVRs are also able to control and tilt and zoom cameras using this single cable technology DVR systems support various frame rates based on frames per second 2k and 1080p at 15 frames per second 720p and 960h at 30 frames per second the more frames per second the smoother the motion will appear
NVR system support 4k 2k and 1080p at 30 frames per second but also handle 720p at 60 frames per second another a unique feature of Lorex DVRs and NVRs is that they are cloud-enabled you can control and monitor your DVR or NVR system from anywhere in the world via your mobile device or computer lauric supports a number of apps simply visit lore XCOM and find the apps under the support menu Lorex takes security quite seriously both SSL and TLS are
DVR vs NVR, Which One is Better?
so here I will give my personal suggestion which is better to buy for you if your budget is low so the best option DVR(Digital Video Recorder) and if you have a good budget for your home security you can choose NVR system
Both are used to encrypt and authenticate data that is transferred over the Internet both DVRs and NVRs have a role to play in any security system, it is just a matter of picking which system works best for you
