HR-820 HYDRA HD™ 8ch Digital Video Recorder

HR-820 HYDRA HD™ 8ch Digital Video Recorder

Do Much More With Your Existing Coax Cable Using HYDRA HD™ Solution

What are the benefits of HYDRA HD™ cameras and recorders?


1. Runs 1080p HD video using existing coax cable : No need to upgrade or replace an existing cable to a Cat5e or Cat6  network cable for an existing analog site. HYDRA HD™ cameras use an existing coax cable to deliver 1080p HD video


2. No more IP latency for live video: HYDRA HD™ cameras show live display in HD. There is no packet encoding and decoding delays


3. No more stress with cable distance limitations: HYDRA HD™ cameras can transmit 1080p HD video over a coax cable up to 1500ft without using repeaters or boosters.


4. Port to port plug and play installation: HYDRA HD™cameras will perfactly sync with a HYDRA HD™ recorder via the BNC port without requiring IP configuration or IP setup. The HYDRA HD™ recorder senses and assigns designated channels when HYDRA HD™ cameras are connected to the BNC ports.
