Product Description

Professional IP recording solution for mid- to large-sized enterprise applications 32 IP cameras Up to 4K UHD HDMI output support Integrated 24 port PoE switch 12 megapixel recording resolution Embedded Linux OS

The Alibi 5X series features convenient plug and play support for compatible IP cameras up to 12MP resolution.

The 32-Channel Rack-mount NVR has 4 hard drive bays that support up to 40TB (4 x 10TB hard drives) and an incoming bandwidth of 320 Mbps to support up to 32 IP cameras. You can capture higher quality details with a recording resolution of up to 12MP.

Local video outputs include HDMI, CVBS and VGA. To experience ultra-crisp, high-resolution images, this NVR displays up to 4K Ultra-High Definition (UHD).

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

It is also equipped with 16 alarm inputs 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 Learn more about Alibi Point of Sale (POS) integration.

The integrated 24 port PoE (Power over Ethernet) switch that supports 802.3af and 802.3at reduces the need for additional network switches and offers the plug and play auto connect feature for compatible Alibi cameras.

This NVR works with the user-friendly Alibi CMS (Central Management Software), a professional monitoring platform that enables you to centrally manage all your devices, at multiple locations, from a single interface. The CMS enables you to view up to 64 live cameras, and it 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.

Free Alibi Witness iOS and Android mobile app delivers convenient remote viewing of live and recorded video.

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