NUBIX 16HD: Hybrid 16-Channel Security DVR

Differences between HD and HDX Models

While appearing identical, the Nubix 16HD series offers a competitive savings advantage over the Nubix 16HDX with little significant trade-off in features. The Nubix 16HD model offers real time recording on all channels simultaneously in CIF resolution, while the Nubix 16HDX can perform the same operation in D1 resolution. Many users may not require D1 resolution, real-time recording on all channels at once.

 This small difference translates into savings for you and your clients. If you understand your clients needs and they are working with a tight budget, the Nubix 16HD security DVR may be perfect for them.

Nubix HD series DVRs work equally well with high definition megapixel IP cameras and traditional analog CCTV cameras.  They make a perfect DVR for surveillance networks bridging the two technologies.

MAC Compatibility

It's no secret our DVRs have a cozy relationship with the PC platform. We're proud to add MAC operating system compatibility with our HD & HDX series. No longer will MAC users be stuck with inferior quality DVRs from other manufacturers.

Easy to Program Thanks to Linux

An imbedded Linux operating system with a graphical user interface lies at the heart of this DVR. This makes programming and setup menus easy to navigate. It's a snap to set up event-triggered functions like having the DVR email you if it detects unauthorized activity.

If the multilingual GUI (graphical user interface) ever needs an update you can download it for free from our support site. Put it on a USB flash drive (supplied with the DVR) and then follow the menu driven instructions to upgrade your DVR.

Easy LAN Connection and Setup

Connect to local area networks quickly using the RJ45 style connector on the back. You can expect trouble-free communication with TCP/IP, DHCP, DDNS and PPoE protocols available.

Remote Operation

This security DVR contains a built-in webserver. If it is connected to the internet you can use a PC equipped with MS Internet Explorer (v7.0 or higher) to review your cameras. All you need is the IP address of the DVR (which you assign during setup) and your password, which you create. Login to your DVR from any remote location, enter our password, and review files or watch live video from any camera. If the PC is equipped with our management software (bundled with the DVR) you can access the menu and make changes just as if you were standing in front of the DVR.
