 Recording Rate and 
The STR-1694/3294 DVRs are able to record up to 16/32 camera inputs in real time providing D1/2CIF resolution on each channel. Due to this feature the DVRs are effective in applications where rate and quality of recording are mission-critical.

Independent Multi-Screen Outputs
The unique feature of the DVRs is availability of 4 independent BNC multi-screen outputs, as well as duplicating MAIN1 and MAIN2 digital DVI (VGA) outputs for high definition Full HD monitors (live video viewing or archived video playback). Thus, one DVR permits to set up four independent viewing stations, allowing to display any camera group in multi-screen mode.

Storage Capacity Expansion
The STR-1694/3294 support 4 internal SATA HDDs. Further archive expansion (up to 64 TB) is possible by attaching STG-ES disk arrays, each supporting 4 removable SATA HDDs. Disk arrays are chain-connected to a special gigabit port on DVR. Additionally, DVR and disk arrays can work in Mirror Recording mode, providing data duplication on allocated HDDs alongside regular recording.

Remote Control and PTZ
Operator can remotely control both the DVR and PTZ cameras via RS-232/485 using Smartec STT-3X keyboard controller.  With multiple STT-3X controllers and STR-1694/3294 DVRs, it is possible to build large-scale multifunctional video surveillance systems.

Video Recording and Search Modes
STR-1694/3294 can perform continuous or panic video recording, as well as schedule, motion, and alarm recording. The DVRs also support pre-alarm recording (up to 5 s) and post-alarm recording (up to 60 s). Video search is possible by date/time, calendar (in graphic mode), or by event log. Additionally, SmartSearch is supported when using Control Center software bundled with the DVRs. This feature enables motion search only in selected picture area.

Data Backup
The DVR is equipped with 2 USB ports, and built-in DVD-RW which serves to backup video segments from archive in special format. Along with video segments, the system copies to storage medium player utility, allowing to playback video on any PC.

Control Center Software for Remote Administration
The DVR is bundled with full-featured Control Center software for remote administration and monitoring of up to 512 DVRs. Control Center provides remote live/archived video viewing of up to 64 camera inputs per monitor in full-screen or multi-screen mode (video can be displayed on 2 monitors connected to a single PC). Along with remote calendar/date/time/event search the software supports smart search of video segments with motion in a specified picture area even if motion detection was not used during recording. Video recording preservation is guaranteed by configurable schedule backup feature. Control Center contains graphic module which serves to create interactive site maps allowing to visualize location of video surveillance equipment in the building and to set up logical links between devices.
