The MULTIEYE-HYBRID DVR-Kits let you create professional hybrid video recorders. Together with high quality video boards, the MULTIEYE-NET software supports simultaneous operation of analog and digital video sources, i.e. up to 32 analog/IP cameras can be combined with each other and operated from within one recorder. Integrating the network cameras/video servers is as easy as setting up analog cameras.

Clearly arranged menu, multifunctional, upgradeable

We have placed major emphasis upon easy operation, high image quality, functionality, and the availability of subsequent upgrades. MULTIEYE-HYBRID puts a multifunctional, highly innovative video recorder and management system at your disposal, a system capable of being modernized and adjusted to customer-specific requirements at any time.


The MULTIEYE-HYBRID DVR-Kits with software-based video compression consist of professional high quality PCI video board(s) with up to 32 BNC camera inputs, max. 2 monitor outputs, connection for EX-IO boards and the MULTIEYE-NET video recorder and management software on a USB stick, quick instruction manual and accessories. Each DVR-Kit includes one demo IP video input for unlimited IP camera evaluation. One recorder can be expanded to 32 channels by means of expansion boards and/or IP-video licenses. The DVR-Kits allow mixed operation of recording formats; MJPEG or H.264 is available for each channel. 

All in all, 3 different DVR-Kits with a total recording rate of up to 960fps** (analog and IP video) are available. The video boards can be combined with the optionally available EX-IO boards with alarm inputs and relay outputs. MULTIEYE-NET is an innovative and multifunctional software. Thanks to its modular design it can be modernized and adjusted to customer-specific requirements at any time. All DVR-Kits are "UVV-Kassen" conform (the German professional association) and thus feature both pre-alarm and post-alarm. The MULTIEYE-NET software supports more than 1,000 of the most common IP cameras and video servers from 100+ different manufacturers, thus enabling ultra-fast and uncomplicated camera integration (automatic recognition of camera IP addresses within the network) and the greatest possible flexibility.

Express installation via Plug & Play

After the PCI video board and the MULTIEYE-NET software have been installed and the cameras connected, the system is immediately ready for operation. This is made possible by the combination of the functionality of modern PCs and servers with the innovative hardware and software of the HYBRID DVR-Kits.
