A DVR is used for analog cameras, an analog camera uses coax cables to transfer the video signal to the DVR to be recorded. Usually DVRs only support analog cameras only, however, AVS uses “hybird” DVRs, meaning you may connect up to 8 analog cameras and up to 8 IP cameras. A NVR is used for IP/Megapixel cameras, an IP or megapixel camera uses CAT5 or CAT6 wiring to transmit its signal to the NVR to be recorded. An NVR is the first step into a fully digital security or surveillance system. With an NVR, you may have unlimited storage capability. Your video storage could also include Network Attached Storage (NAS).
