Due to its technical features and functions, the STR-1677 DVR is ideal for small and mid-sized video surveillance systems with high reliability and video quality requirements. The model allows to perform simultaneous video recording, live viewing, and networking. Recording settings, including resolution, are configurable per individual channel. For ease of operation, the DVRs offer video search by date, time, or event. The DVR is supplied with IR remote control.

H.264 Support
The DVR features the most effective H.264 compression method, providing 80% bit rate reduction compared to M-JPEG, and 40% compared to MPEG-4. Therefore, H.264 ensures maximum recording time without compromising image quality, as well as maximum video transmission rate over the network.

High Recording Rate
The STR-1677 is capable to provide recording of 16 video inputs at 400 ips with D1 (720x576) resolution. Video is recorded to SATA HDDs (4 SATA HDDs are supported). Video also can be backed up to external USB drives or DVD/CD via DVD-RW.

PTZ Control
RS-485 interface allows to control PTZ cameras from DVR front panel, IR remote control, USB mouse, or STT-CN3R1 remote PTZ controller. PTZ cameras can also be controlled remotely from RMS Software.

Spot Monitor Output
In addition to main monitor output (VGA, BNC), the DVRs are equipped with Spot output, used to connect a monitor for real time alarm video viewing or sequencing. For sensor and alarm device connection, the DVRs offer 4 alarm inputs and 1 alarm output.

Audio Recording and Transmission
The DVR provides recording of 8 audio inputs. RMS software allows to arrange two-way audio connection with remote DVR.

Recorded video retention
S.M.A.R.T support allows performing continuous monitoring of hard disk drives used for video storage. If there is a threat of disk drive failure (overheating or damage), the system will warn the operator in good time.

Remote Viewing
The STR-1677 is bundled with RMS software, allowing to view the DVR's video remotely from any PC on the network. The software features all functions, required to view live or archived video and provide remote DVR setup. In addition to RMS software, applications for mobile devices and tablets on Apple, Android, Windows Mobile and BlackBerry platforms are also available.
