The Alibi 7X series is a high-performance product line, designed to meet the demands of mid-to large-scale enterprise surveillance applications.

The Alibi 7X Series 32-Channel Rack-mount NVR supports up to 32 IP cameras with 320 Mbps recording. With a recording resolution of up to 12.0 megapixels, it delivers ultra-sharp, high resolution images.

8 hard drive bays support up to 8 x 10TB hard drives with RAID redundant storage that ensures video and data is never lost in the event of hard drive failure. Dual GB LAN interfaces for multiple function modes: failover, and independent.

This NVR supports H.265+, H.265, H.264+ and H.264 video streams that help reduce file size, maximize recording time, and save hard drive space.

This recorder supports dual HDMI outputs and one VGA. It is also equipped with 16 alarm inputs that connect to specific camera locations and 4 alarm outputs to connect to external devices such as a siren or fire alarm. This enables trigger recording based on the camera location connected to a specific alarm/sensor.

This versatile recorder allows multiple selectable recording modes: continuous, motion detection, POS, schedule, and event. Recording features include event search, event log, and email notification.

Alibi NVRs are packed with great features, but our retail customers are especially happy with the Point of Sale integration that helps them reduce shrinkage caused by employee theft. By combining POS transaction data with video, there is an additional audit trail to help investigate fraudulent transactions and theft incidents. Key features include:

  • Transactional data that appears as text overlay on high resolution video
  • Easy and efficient keyword search that locates corresponding video and transactional evidence
  • Universal TCP/IP POS driver compatible with most PC-based cash registers

This NVR is compatible with the user-friendly Alibi Central Management Software (CMS) which allows you to view up to 64 live cameras and support up to 256 devices with 1,024 maximum channels. This software is loaded with powerful features that include: drag-and-drop system and camera selection, customizable displays, device grouping, alarms and notifications, and remote system management.

The Free Alibi Witness mobile app which delivers convenient remote viewing of live and recorded video is also available for use with the recorder.

Note: Certain recording features and capabilities of NVRs, including motion detection recording, depend on IP camera compatibility.
