are then able to review the file on a television or integrated device.
These systems often include the ability to edit the video, increasing the sharpness, allowing you to better see facial features while also being able to zoom in on specific characteristics that may be important to you. By having all of your cameras transmit to the same digital recording device you will be able to efficiently review and store files for up to several months at a time.
