Product Replacement

CCTV Security Camera DVR

2023 Update: The iDVR-PRO16H is no longer available. CCTV Camera Pros highly recommends our Viewtron 16ch DVR as a superior replacement. Viewtron is by far our best selling product line. The 16 channel Viewtron DVR is currently $799.99. We also have Viewtron HD BNC security cameras available here.

The iDVR-PRO16H is capable of recording on all sixteen camera channels at 30 frames per second at full 960H, D1, 720P, or 1080P resolution. In the video surveillance industry, 30 frames per seconds is sometimes referred to as real time recording. The iDVR-PRO16H DVR supports recording at 480 FPS total (which is 30 FPS x 16 cameras). The iDVR-PRO16H uses a Linux embedded operating system and is considered a "stand alone" CCTV DVR.

iDVR-PRO surveillance DVRs include some of the best mobile apps for remote viewing from iPhone, iPad, and Android mobile devices. The web browser and software applications for Windows and Macintosh computers is also some of the best that we have tested. All iDVR-PROs included a mouse and wireless IR remote control that is used to access and control the intuitive and easy to use user interface.

The iDVR-PRO "H" series DVRs use the exact same software interface and client applications as the "A" series and "M" series. The main differences with the "H" series is the ability to add a DVD burner, 5 hard drive bays, one audio surveillance input per camera input, additional BNC spot monitor outputs (2 spot outputs for this 16 channel model), 16 alarm inputs, 8 relay outputs, and 8 digital alarm outputs. Spot monitor outputs are commonly used in retail stores to display live camera views at entrances so store customers are aware that the store is monitored by video surveillance.

The spot outputs can be configured to display a grid of 4 cameras each or a single camera view that scrolls between all camera views. Learn more about the iDVR-PRO16H spot monitor functionality here.

These DVRs come with a 2 year warranty and lifetime USA based technical support, both of which are provided directly from CCTV Camera Pros.

The robust features and sleek design make the iDVR-PRO DVRs one of the best choices for home, business, and government video surveillance systems.

Hybrid DVR Works with CCTV & HD Security Cameras

CCTV and HD Security Cameras

The iDVR-PRO16H is an SD / HD hybrid DVR that works with analog CCTV, AHD, and HD-TVI cameras. This means that traditional analog CCTV cameras and the latest high definition security cameras can be used. All video surveillance resolutions up to full 1080p are supported.

Here is how it works.

  1. Originally, CCTV cameras supported CIF (352 x 240 pixels) and D1 resolution (704 x 480 pixels).
  2. Then, 960H resolutions introduced to move towards the widescreen format of the latest monitors and TVs (16:9 aspect ratio). 960H is 960 x 480 pixel resolution.
  3. In 2014, AHD cameras (analog high definition), also known as analog HD / HD CCTV, were introduced which supported HD 720p (1280 x 720) resolution.
  4. In 2015, full HD 1080p resolution AHD cameras were introduced (1920 x 1080).
  5. HD-TVI is another high definition CCTV technology that was introduced and evolved around the same time as AHD.
  6. HD-TVI cameras are also available in 720p and 1080p resolutions.
  7. All of these video formats (analog CCTV, AHD, TVI) work using the same RG59 coax cable to run video from the camera to the DVR. However, the video encoding is different between them.
  8. Hybrid iDVR-PRO model DVRs works with all of these camera types. Users can also mix standard definition CCTV and high definition (AHD and TVI) on the same recorder (hybrid).
  9. Each channel can be configured for a different camera type.
You can learn more about what AHD is here.

Spot Monitor / Dual Monitor

The spot monitor function on this hybrid CCTV DVR is one of the features that make it unique. There are two HD monitor outputs: HDMI and VGA. Users have the option to choose a dual monitor setup which mirrors the two displays and both will display the menu system of the DVR.

Users also have the option to setup one of the outputs as a spot monitor, which hides the DVR's menu system and only displays a live security camera view. iDVR-PRO has the most advanced spot monitor configuration. Watch the above video to see how easy it is to setup custom camera layouts in the spot monitor.
