Knowledge about Tribrid DVR
What is TRIBRID DVRs?
“Tribrid” digital video recorders (DVR), as they've come to be known, aren't a new thing. Previous to the release of Tribrid DVRs, there were Hybrid DVRs. Hybrid’s are capable of streaming and recording both standard analog and IP/network cameras. The Tribrid simply introduces the ability to now have HD-AHD cameras in addition to those analog and IP cameras.
Ease of Use
Using a Tribrid DVR is no different than using any other DVR or NVR. The graphic user interface (GUI) and features will all be very similar. The real difference is that the features that distinguish a DVR from an NVR will all be on the same unit. This may mean some added menu options or inputs.
How it Works?
Each Tribrid DVR can be configured for Standard Analog (up to 960H) or HDAHD (High Definition Analog). In addition, there are IP Channels available. These inputs are AUTO SENSING, you don't have to do anything except CONNECT the camera, the system will determine which camera you have connected, and configure it automatically. Your IP cameras simply need to be added to the device list. This is done in the same fashion as if you were using an NVR.
YOU should be considering a Tribrid
Other than the Hybrid DVR, the Tribrids are just about the first thing in this entire industry to be even close to backwards compatible. In the past, upgrading from one type of system to another always meant swapping out your video recorder in addition to your cameras. For this reason, it gets expensive pretty quick to upgrade; having a DVR that’s compatible with every type of camera currently available, regardless of type, should seem like a no-brainer. This puts you in a perfect position to either upgrade everything all at once, or piece it out one thing at a time. With this unit, you can use your EXISTING Cables, Power Supplies, Connectors, etc. It makes the experience less time consuming and less expensive.
