Provides a thirty percent increase in “full D1” resolution for analog cameras

Amityville, NY — Today, Speco Technologies announced immediate availability of its new D16DS DVR.  The DS is ideal for a wide range of applications and offers a simple and cost effective solution to high resolution challenges.

Optimized with 960H technology, the DS provides a 30% increase in resolution – the highest available for analog CCTV compared to D1.   (960H represents the number of horizontal pixels in the CCD image sensor, and this technology enables this DVR to record and playback  high resolution images of up to 700 TVL, something other DVRs cannot do.   The DS delivers enhanced recording performance and provides greater flexibility in camera configuration by delivering vivid images with a higher resolution.)

The DS DVR supports real-time 30FPS per channel 960H recording, and utilizes Speco’s Digital Deterrent technology – to help assist in preventing crime.   The DS has a complete suite of EZ Wizards to facilitate an easy and seamless networking and installation.   The EZ Setup Wizards allow an installer to open a “Wizard” to walk through simple point and click steps for a successful connection to the internet.  The one click wizard guides the set up essentials of the system in a logical and easy to understand sequence. The DVR will get an IP address, DDNS name and even use UPnP to port forward the router.

  1. EZ Setup: for quick system setup
  2. EZ Network: for quick set-up on a network
  3. EZ Search: Quickly search events from thumbnails
  4. EZ Copy: auto copy what you are playing onto a USB flash drive
  5. EZ Record: quickly setup recording schedules, resolutions and recording type

Another big differentiator of the DS unit is the support for an optional USB wireless access point for viewing and configuration. A wireless access point-to-point connection to the DVR from a mobile or network device is used for viewing and configuring the DVR where physical access to the DVR is limited or restricted. 

DS is a 16 channel 960H DVR with 30FPS real-time recording software with hard drive storage capacity ranging from 500GB to 9TB,  includes Mac & PC compatibility and offers a 3 year warranty.  The unit can be remotely viewed on iPhone®, or Android, with free iPhone app available from iTunes.  

 “Speco’s new DS DVR is perfect for those who want the highest resolution for their analog systems while using existing coaxial infrastructure,” said Todd Keller, President of Speco Technologies. “Speco continues to drive innovation in security products aimed at deterring crime and we are thrilled to introduce this remarkably enhanced DVR with built in Digital Deterrent™ and remote upgrade capability”  For more information about the DS DVR visit
