Users can use any of those camera types on each channel of their DVR using the same BNC video inputs. Follow these instructions to configure each BNC video input on your iDVR-PRO for the camera type you will be using. You can find these hybrid CCTV / HD camera DVRs here. These instructions only apply to the iDVR-PRO hybrid.

Now, under the Analog Type Setup menu, select the Type for all, or each individual camera. You will be able to choose from AHD, TVI(A), and TVI(B). If you are using a standard resolution analog CCTV camera, 720p AHD camera, or 1080p AHD camera, select the AHD format. The DVR will automatically detect which format is being used. If you are using a USA version 720p HD-TVI camera or 1080p HD-TVI camera, select TVI(A). TVI(B) is used for PAL format TVI cameras (European standard).

Complete CCTV Systems
Did you know? CCTV Camera Pros can provide a complete surveillance system quote that includes any iDVR-PRO model with cameras, cables, connectors, power supplies, and monitors? We can even mix and match SD and HD security cameras because the latest iDVR-PROs are hybrid. They work with CCTV, AHD, and HD-TVI type cameras. As you have probably already seen on our website, we have 2, 4, 8, and 16 camera surveillance systems in pre-made packages. However, it is not possible for us to package up every combination and quantity of all the different camera models that we carry. So, we can also provide you with a custom quote with as many cameras as you need and a mix of any combination of camera model(s) based on your project requirements.
