The Alibi 5000 Series Hybrid+ DVR supports analog, HD-TVI, analog HD, and IP cameras for the ultimate in flexibility. The DVR comes with an IP camera finder tool that allows you to find, configure, and connect to two compatible IP cameras—up to 8MP—to add to the configuration or replace two analogs for crisp, high-quality images.
With the real-time recording feature and a selectable frame rate, you can set the recording resolution for each camera and achieve vivid 3MP HD-TVI video @ 15fps and 1080p video at 30fps per channel.
This recorder comes with convenient PTZ camera controls, and when used with 960H analog cameras, this hybrid DVR offers both 960H high-resolution live viewing and recording (33% more detail than standard D1 DVRs).
As well as delivering HD resolution video, up to 4K HDMI monitor output, HD-TVI technology can send zero latency HD video over RG59 coax or any standard analog CCTV cabling—up to 1600 feet.
The DVR features a powerful, intuitive user interface with a host of smart features, including:
