With a patent pending in the U.S. and other countries, DVR First’s Combo-DVR multi-channel (4, 8 and 16 channel) systems have MPEG4 picture quality with high resolution. The system looks like a regular LCD screen computer monitor of screen sizes ranging from 15 to 19 inches, handling up to 16 channels for 16 camera locations. A triplex mode allows for remote monitoring and control through the Internet.
