What Is A Multiplexer DVR And Why Would You Need One?

Monday, May 10th, 2010

Multiplexer DVR SystemsSecurity cameras are everywhere. They are a necessary evil used to monitor, track and catch shoplifters and other criminals. Setting up a security system may seem a little complicated up front, but don’t let that intimidate you. Security system installations can be much easier if the right equipment is used.

Most security systems utilize more than one camera, but how do you hook up more than one camera to a security screen? It is actually pretty easy, with the right piece of hardware. This is done by using a device called a multiplexer.

Multiplexers are designed to take multiple input signals from multiple cameras and output them to one or several monitors. Multiplexers come in a variety of models, but they are all designed to make it easier for one person to monitor multiple cameras at once. They can also be used in conjunction with a time-laps recorder for storage purposes.

Multiplexers are nothing new, but they have come a long way over the past 10 years. Many modern multiplexers include built-in digital video recorders (DVRs). These all-in-one systems can take in multiple video inputs, record them and easily play them back as needed.

EchoVue is one of the best-known manufacturers of DVR security systems with built-in multiplexers. Our EchoVue EV1607 has a total of 16 video inputs! EchoVue systems can be purchased with or without hard drives. Some of our DVR systems come with cameras as a complete package.
