Signal DL-83xx is a modern series of high-end DVRs. Its performance and features place it at the forefront of solutions offered on the market. Some of the features include HDMI, VGA, SPOT outputs, advanced network software, recording speed of 25 fps - each channel and 4CIF (the maximum resolution in the case of analog CCTV systems).
SIGNAL DL-8316 offers recording of 4CIF (704 x 576) images at 25 fps in each of its sixteen channels. The resolution can be reduced to CIF. H.264 compression, providing good video quality at substantially lower bitrates than the previous standards, saves available disk capacity and bandwidth of the network.

The menu of the DVR has been designed in a manner that helps everyone, even novice users, navigate and make changes to the settings. Both the layout of commonly used functions and graphic design meet the highest current standards. The settings for all channels are provided in tables, making easier and faster to change and compare them.
Browsing the archives locally, the user can simultaneously play them back from 4 channels. To quickly localize the interesting moment/period, the video records are presented on timelines. Recordings can also be searched by alarm events. There is a possibility to manage the video files and still images stored on the hard drive, both in automatic and manual modes. The jog dial makes it easy to operate the DVR, especially to navigate through the recordings.
Multiple levels of security, assignment of individual access rights, stable operation in the network - are the hallmarks of the product.
