Monitoring on all 16 video channels is in-real time in multi or single display. This makes the unit ideal for use in areas with fast moving pedestrian traffic or with PTZ and high speed dome cameras. Users can also take advantage of the full 4K video monitor output.

HDCVI, Analog or IP video stream channels can be mixed into the same VGA/HDMI display output, thus providing the user with a hybrid CCTV experience. Video channels can be displayed full-screen or multi-screen in single, quad, nine or sixteen mode. The DVR has a two monitor outputs, a VGA or HDMI output. These outputs can be configured as main monitor outputs or as a spot/event monitor. This can be selected manually via the menu or automatically via alarm/motion event activation.

Utilising the very latest in H.264+ compression technology, this DVR utilises hardware compression chips and an embedded processor. This allows it to record each video channel in real-time (upto 1080P Resolution). Recording for the cameras can be configured to activate via schedule, motion or manually.

For storage, the E-DVR-1716P has the capacity for two SATA HDDs allowing support for upto 16TBs of onboard storage (2 x 8TB). 


Cameras are played back individually, two at a time, four at a time or 16 at a time through the search menu function. Various playback speeds can be selected including x1/4, x1/2, x1, x2, x4, x8 or frame by frame. Video and Audio can also be played back from the unit across a TCP/IP network with the included Client Software. A new feature is the time-line bar which displays video recorded according to motion.


Recorded video can be backed-up through the unit's USB port . Any individual camera may be backed up for a pre-determined time. The video is then saved in a proprietry file format. This file can be played back on a PC with the playback application installed. With this application, still images can be obtained or the video converted to a standard AVI format. For remote backup over a TCP/IP network, the client software or a web browser can be used to download individual camera clips.


One of the many other DVR features includes direct PTZ/speed dome control. This is via the integrated RS485 interface. Several RS485 protocols are supported allow control over a variety of manufacturer's products. Each channel on the DVR can be configured with different brightness/contrast and hue settings. These can also be set for a particular time of the day which is helpful in terms of day/night cameras.
