datasheet and model comparison



With the same technology developed for our traditional CCTV systems, we designed this range of video recorders for use on mobile vehicles. These vehicle DVRs provide all the features and remote connectivity of our best CCTV systems, but combined with the size, connectors and functions required for mounting on vehicles.

  AHD/CVBS/IP Multi Technology

Suitable for AHD/CVBS/IP cameras
The most popular video format for vehicle cameras is the classic analog video CVBS. This format does not provide a great resolution, but it is often enough for these applications where the small format of the monitors does not allow to appreciate higher resolutions. Unique in their kind, these vehicle DVRs, in addition to the traditional CVBS format, also allow the connection of 720P AHD cameras and even 720P IP cameras. You can freely choose among the many cameras on the market and make your vehicle system with the ones you prefer.

Mini size DVR for many applications
Being suitable to manage IP and AHD cameras, the same used in home CCTV systems, and full P2P Internet control make these devices ideal to be used as mini video recorders for residential systems, boats, campers and wherever you want a small size DVR.

  Main benefits

Black-Box style
These vehicles DVRs are supplied in a black box that is very small: only 160x120x55 mm. The aluminum casing is equipped with two fixing wings to be easily installed under the dashboard, or in any part of the vehicle is convenient. Usually this type of devoice is installed in a hidden place so that it can not be tampered by intruders who may enter the vehicle.

IR remote control with separate receiver
To allow the user convenient control of the functions, the DVRs are equipped with an infrared remote control. The receiver for the remote control is not on the DVR but on a cable of about 1.5 m that allows you to place it conveniently on the dashboard. The remotely receiver makes these DVRs very suitable for any applications where the DVR must be hidden and controlled from the outside.

Built-in power supply unit for cameras
In vehicle installations the space to install components is small and it would be inconvenient to power the cameras like in traditional CCTV systems.
These vehicle DVRs come with one 12VDC power output for each video channel. Each input consists of a 4-pin connector (included) that allows you to send power to the camera while receiving the video and audio signal.
You can use a standard 4-conductor cable to connect the camera.

Built-in power supply unit for monitor
These DVRs are designed to work with mini monitors for vehicles that require analog video signal. Also in this case, as for the cameras, the DVR is able to supply 12VDC power supply to the monitor so that only one cable is needed for wiring.

Built-in power supply unit for monitor
In addition to the analog monitor output for a small dashboard monitor, DVRs also have an HDMI monitor output for a TV monitor and a VGA port for a PC monitor.
These ports can be useful if you have a large monitor on the vehicle for comfortable playback of video footage (campers, trucks, boats).

Multi live view
You can use the IR remote control to choose how the cameras are displayed on the monitor. You can easily switch between quad cameras and full screen view.

Fuse protected power cable
The DVR come with a power cord for connection to the vehicle control panel. The DVR is suitable for all vehicles, both with 12VDC battery and 24VDC.
If you connect the power supply to the vehicle's ACC output, the DVR will only operate when the vehicle is running. If, on the other hand, you want the surveillance system to always be operating, even when the vehicle is stationary, you can connect the power supply directly to the battery.
The power cord supplied with the DVR includes the appropriate fuses.

Anti-vibration connectors
Vehicle DVRs do not come with the classic BNC connectors, typical of traditional CCTV, but with special screw-on connectors that contain the dimensions and make the connection resistant to vehicle vibrations.

HDD video recording
DVR store all the video files on built-in Hard Disks, the same kind of memories used in Personal Computers. In order to provide the maximum flexibility, DN video recorders are supplied without hard disk.
2.5" SATA Hard Drive of any brand and up to 4TB capacity can be installed, in order to tailor the recording capacity to your needs.
Compression can also be adjusted to match your storage requirements. As a reference 1TB HDD contains 720P videos from 4 cameras for over 15 days with average settings.
The DVR can be set to overwrite older videos when HDD is full.

ONVIF protocol

These DVR/NVR fully support the ONVIF protocol for IP cameras (latest version 2.6) thus are suitable for any IP cameras using this standard.
ONVIF is a very important international standard in the IP video industry, resulting from the cooperation among the most important manufacturers.
