Digital Video Recorder (DVR)
The DVR is the device that stores all the footage taken from the camera. It is specifically encrypted with the manufacturers watermark to show that it holds original footage that can not be tampered with. This makes the video captured 100% useable in the court of law. DVR's also have the ability to archive files and back them up on a separate device. A basic version (as shown in the picture) is available as well as a wall mountable, encased version that further prevents tampering or damage.
Network Video Recorder (NVR)
This device has the same purpose as a DVR, but instead of data being stored in a hard drive, it is on a virtual network with special software installed to manage it.
A huge benefit to CCTV is its ability to integrate with a Card Access System. Because of its ability to record based on response parameters, it can be programmed to start recording when someone attempts to access a door with a card reader, thus recording a visual verification of the event.
