The AVer NV6480E16 DVR Card Capture Board Alternative

The AVer NV6480E16 DVR Card Capture Board was a great DVR capture card 5 years ago. This product was installed in a PC to convert a PC based computer system to a Digital Video Recorder. With new technology, DVR capture boards have become obsolete. 

We still receive many daily calls from customers asking about the AVer media DVR capture card; specifically, the AVer NV6480E-16 board, which was a 16 channel, real-time 480 frames per second unit. This capture board was direct competition to the Geovision capture board.

DVR capture boards were popular 5 years ago because at that time having sophisticated features on a video recorder was not possible. Linux based DVRs relied solely on off-the-market, cheap processors. Those processors were incapable of handling too much video graphics. With time, processor prices, like everything, went down. Now with advanced technology, better software and hard drives provided more stable Linux based standalone DVRs that are as good or even better than PC based.

Another common issue was the number of hard drives standalone DVRs were able to support. Off course PC based systems had larger capacity, dependent on the computer case size. Now the Linux embedded board DVRs can support up to eight hard drives. The storage size of the hard drives has also become much larger. Five years ago 1 terabyte was the maximum size, now they go up to 8 terabytes per hard drive.

Now, when customers call us and ask us about a better alternative, we always direct them to the 2M HD digital video recorder that supports old analog CVBS cameras that work in similarly to the AVermedia capture board. This new device also supports newer technology like TVI, CVI, AHD and IP cameras.

2M suggests you purchase the 2M standalone DVR it is a better system and easier to use replacement for the old AVermedia capture board. For any other options call our engineers so they can help at 1-877-926-2288.
