For years, 16-channel coax-based DVRs were the largest multichannel video recorders available and became the mainstay of larger analog security camera systems.  But no matter how advanced these 16-channel DVRs were, they were limited to 16 direct-connect cameras. Now IC Realtime’s HDAVS Petntabrid recorders have changed that with our HDVR-MX1616-1U4K-A3 - a single HDVR with 16 direct BNC and 16 available IP network channels. The original HDAVS MX-1616 series has been a popular choice for camera integrators charged with legacy system upgrades. The new AI3 version uses a new processor with updated cybersecurity, adds 2 channels of AI face recognition with metadata encoding for faster searches, and adds 12 channels of Perimeter Protection (up to 6 channels in Advanced mode) and IMD capabilities on up to 16 channels.

16 + 16 CHANNELS
The MX1616 can not only directly replace a legacy 16-channel analog or HD Over Coax DVR - automatically match many legacy camera video formats to record AVS/AHD/TVI/CVI and even legacy analog (CVBS) inputs, the HDVR-MX1616 can provide monitoring & recording storage for up to 16 additional IP cameras, essentially doubling the HDVR’s camera inputs for a total of 32 recordable video channels. In fact, as older BNC-based cameras are replaced with IP cameras, the 16 BNC channels can be converted to handle IP cameras. MX1616 also has dual internal SATA-III hard drive ports for up to 20TB internal storage and broad interoperability with third-party cameras due to its upgraded Onvif 21.12 & CGI compliance.

MX1616 not only doubles its recordable channels from 16 to 32, but each channel can also be customized for frame rate & up to 8MP / 4K resolution and this HDVR supports the new 16:9 widescreen format our latest 5MP HD-AVS series cameras provide. This incredible 3840 × 2160 pixel clarity is not only astonishing to view when live-streamed or played back using the MX1616's HDMI port, but it also means better & more accurate color, edge, and detail rendition for MX1616's AI to analyze. This clarity is also indispensable for forensic review and for creating indisputable video evidence clips. To accommodate local security monitors, the MX1616 also outputs through a back panel VGA & even a TV RCA jack for legacy security monitor systems.

MX1616 doesn't just process & record ultra-clear 4K UHD video & audio inputs. With FlexSmartAi detection & analysis built-in, the HDVR applies the world's most advanced human & vehicle detection systems to reduce false detection alerts by 90% over conventional motion detection. MX1616 enables Face Recognition on any 2 of its 16 BNC channels at up to 12 faces per second using its internal 20,000 face database. It can issue a "stranger" alert if a face isn't recognized, triggering alerts ranging from a discrete snapshot email to an alert buzzer.

AI-enhanced motion detection (IMD) can be enabled on all 16 direct input BNC channels, or  AI-based human & vehicle intrusion & programmable tripwire perimeter protection can be available on up to 12 of the 16 BNC channels or 6 in Advanced mode. Applying the MX1616 AI's algorithmic precision to video detection makes a substantial qualitative difference in detection accuracy, virtually eliminating false alarms while intrusions are more readily detected and quantified. And the system tags human & vehicle detections when recording them, so you can save time when reviewing footage and find what you need quickly.

In the real world, coax camera systems are still a vital part of our industry, and our camera integrators & dealers continue to support BNC video systems. The MX series makes for future-proof new & replacement installations. “Real” is in our name, so IC Realtime has taken the logical path of making our BNC/coax-based recorders able to accommodate both direct BNC and IP network cameras, utilize AI-enhanced detection & perimeter protection, added onboard face recognition, and empowered 4K end-to-end video & audio recording. With a 10 Year limited warranty and lifetime tech support, IC Realtime's new HDVR-MX1616-1U4K-AI3 is now clearly the best 16-channel video recorder in today’s coax camera world.
