An IP NVR (Network Video Recorder) with more channels simply means that it has the capacity to handle and record video feeds from a larger number of IP (Internet Protocol) cameras simultaneously. Each channel represents one camera input that the NVR can manage and record. These IP NVRs are commonly used in larger surveillance systems where multiple cameras are deployed to cover extensive areas or multiple locations. The choice of an IP NVR with more channels is beneficial for businesses, large properties, or security applications that require comprehensive coverage and the ability to monitor multiple camera feeds from a single recording and management device. It allows for centralized control, recording, and storage of video data from a diverse set of cameras, simplifying the surveillance system's overall management.
