The 3300 Series 8-Channel Network Video Recorder (NVR) features the convenience of an integrated 8-port Power over Ethernet network switch (802.3af and 802.3at) that powers the IP network cameras directly through the network cable—eliminating the need to purchase a separate network switch.

This 8-Channel NVR supports compatible IP network cameras (up to 8.0MP resolution) for seamless plug-and-play installation—just plug the compatible cameras into the integrated network switch, and the cameras are automatically detected, displayed, and configured to the NVR.

The remote configurable network recorder features a bit rate of 80 Mbps incoming and 160 Mbps outgoing at up to 60fps per channel. It also supports H.265, H.264, and H.264 OVC video compression to maximize recording time and hard drive space, and multiple selectable recording modes (VCA, alarm, continuous, motion detection and event).

With a recording resolution of 8MP, this network recorder runs on a Linux embedded operating system and has two hard drive bays with a total storage capacity of 20TB.

Alibi Central Management Software (CMS) is a professional monitoring platform that enables you to centrally manage multiple devices, at multiple locations, from a single interface. The CMS enables you to view up to 64 live cameras on a single screen and supports up to 256 devices (such as cameras and recorders) with a maximum of 1,024 channels.

The user-friendly central management software is loaded with powerful features to enhance your management and viewing experience, including: drag-and-drop system and camera selection, customizable displays, device grouping, alarms and notifications, remote system management and many more.

A free Witness iOS/Android mobile app provides convenient remote viewing of video so you can monitor your cameras from anywhere. The NVR also features VGA and 4K HDMI video outputs, 1 USB 2.0 port in the front, and 1 USB 3.0 in the rear.

The NVR also features Alibi Power Tools, designed to streamline and simplify the installation, set-up, and management of your network, your Alibi cameras and recorders, and your recorded video evidence.
