The X54A Series HDCVI DVR offers 1080p recording on each HDCVI channel and a host of advanced features and functions. The X54A takes advantage of HDCVI technology for easy integration into existing video surveillance systems while leveraging existing networks, cabling, and cameras. Penta-brid access technology seamlessly records video from HDCVI, AHD, TVI, CVBS, and IP sources simultaneously. The X54A utilizes the Smart H.265+ Codec to significantly improve encoding efficiency and to reduce bandwidth and storage costs. This recorder is the ideal solution for actively monitoring and recording video feeds in a wide range of applications including public venues, retail stores, transportation hubs and access ways, personal property and homes, and educational institutions.

Camera Connections
Record and monitor video from analog/HDCVI camera inputs and IP camera inputs simultaneously. The X54A series supports a maximum of 32 channels, with up to 32 channels of HDCVI/AHD/TVI/CVBS/IP inputs. The flexibility of the HDCVI DVR allows all 32 channels to record input from IP cameras, or from a combination of input from analog and IP sources (not to exceed the maximum number of analog cameras allowed per recorder).

Flexible Recording
The HDCVI DVR offers a variety of configurable recording options and schedule that saves HDD space and active monitoring time. The recorder monitors incoming video and can be programmed to record if motion is detected or if an alarm is triggered. The recorder can also be programmed to record on a schedule or at different intervals. The recording options and schedules can be set for each individual camera or copied to all cameras.

Smart H.265+
Smart H.265+ is the optimized implementation of the H.265 codec that uses a scene-adaptive encoding strategy, dynamic GOP, dynamic ROI, flexible multi-frame reference structure and intelligent noise reduction to deliver high-quality video without straining the network. Smart H.265+ technology reduces bit rate and storage requirements by up to 90% when compared to the H.264 video compression standard.

The HDCVI DVR automatically recognizes the incoming signals of each attached camera without any setup, making installation easy and operation convenient.

Intelligent Video System (IVS)
With built-in IVS analytics on up to 16 channels, the HDCVI DVR delivers intelligent functions to monitor a scene for Tripwire violations, intrusion detection, and abandoned or missing objects. A device with IVS quickly and accurately responds to monitoring events in a specific area.

Face Detection
The HDCVI DVR offers Face Detection of the first analog channel. This technology detects and captures a snapshot of a human face in a defined area within a scene.

Smart Fan Design
The HDCVI DVR automatically turns on or turns off the fan according to the CPU temperature. This function reduces fan noise and helps to conserve electricity.

Smart Search
Smart Search allows an operator to specify a region in the playback video to search for a motion detection event, saving time and manpower.
