Digital Video Recorders Make it Easy to Record, Play & View Surveillance Video

The primary difference between a Security Digital Video Recorder (DVR) and a Video Cassette Recorder (VCR) is that a Digital Video Recorder (DVR) does not record to a videotape. It saves data to a hard drive instead (like a computer). In doing so, it also transfers Analog Video to Digital Format. DVR's allow users to record more content and provide more recording options. For example, a user may wish to record only when motion is detected or to record 5 frames of video every ten minutes (Time-Lapse). You're in control either way.
