Watch this video demo to see how easy our new Viewtron 4K security camera DVRs are to use. Live display and recorded video surveillance playback is demonstrated in the video. I used my home security camera system to make this video. Currently, I have all 4K cameras installed at my house, except for the 4mp camera that monitors the side of my house.
Here is a list of the equipment that was installed at my house at the time I made this video and blog post.
- Viewtron 16ch hybrid DVR – Works with analog CCTV, HD-over Coax (AHD, HD-TVI, HD-CVI), and network IP cameras.
- IP-D8 4K IP camera dome – Front door.
- 4K-AD3 vandal proof dome – Right side garage / house walkway.
- 4K-B2Z motorized zoom bullet camera – Left side garage.
- 4K-BL9 fixed lens bullet camera – Back yard.
- 4K-D9 fixed lens dome camera – Front door camera #2. This is not typical. It is for testing and comparison purposes.
- 5MP-D5 4mp Turret Dome Camera – Side yard. This can run as a 4 megapixel or 5 megapixel camera.
Here are some screenshots that highlight some of the DVR’s primary features. Please note that these images are 4K resolution. If you click on them, you will see the full 4K ultra HD view.

You can also switch between any of the multi-camera views via the bottom menu. The bottom menu automatically comes into view when the mouse curser hovers over the bottom of the screen.
