TREND is a family of modern CCTV DVRs using H.264 compression.

TREND 250X08 is an eight-channel DVR that provides recording capabilities of 4CIF (704 x 576) images at 6 frames per second or 2CIF (704 x 288) images at 12 fps (in each channel). It can be used in any monitoring system that requires high-resolution recordings, preview in real time and efficient compression standard, but does not operate in a very dynamic environment.
H.264 compression and compatibility with hard drives of capacity up to 2TB enable recording of very large amounts of video data. VGA output with maximum resolution of 1920x1080 px (Full HD) can cooperate with LCD or CRT monitors. Additional video output (BNC - CVBS) provides the same information with resolution limited by PAL or NTSC standard.
The DVR can be operated locally, using the included USB mouse, remote control, or the keys on the front panel, as well as remotely via the Internet (Internet Explorer). The device is supplied with free software for remote monitoring via mobile phones and free software for installing on PC computers running Windows(R) OS (the list of compatible devices can be found in the manual).
