Digital is mainstream today, and most DVRs give you access through a web browser. However, few Digital Video Recorders offer the fault tolerant features Biyn DVR Systems offer, in addition to advanced, user-friendly user interfaces and vast storage systems, at prices medium-sized enterprises can afford.

Digital Video Surveillance has been around for a long time now, and the technology has matured. However, have you ever seen an Industrial DVR you didn’t hate to use? The user interfaces are difficult to use and often even downright user-hostile. The systems are closed and clunky. It’s often hard to find video for a specific time and date, and even harder to save that and provide that video for law enforcement, intelligence, or other purposes. When you use our Industrial DVR you will be pleasantly surprised to learn just how easy they are to use day to day, and that by leveraging the Windows Server environment, integration with other systems is not only possible, but much easier than with other DVR systems.
