Resolution

DX8100 Series Hybrid Video Recorder can export video in either Native or AVI format.

Native

  • Keeps the originally recorded, Pelco-proprietary video compression format.
  • Fastest format, taking the least amount of time to complete a given video export.
  • Maintains the originally recorded video quality.
  • Requires DX8100 Playback Viewer software to playback, which is automatically included with an Export performed directly from the DX8100 Series HVR Local Console.

AVI

  • During export process, video is converted to standard AVI format.
  • Duration of export takes much longer than Native. The exact duration of the export depends on the DX8100 Series HVR system resource load, and may reach 1.5x realtime, meaning that a 30 minute video clip might take as long as 45 minutes to finish exporting.
  • Video Quality is noticeably degraded from originally recorded state.
  • Can be played using Microsoft Windows Media Player or other standard media playback software.
