Ascendent X5S standalone NVRs run on an embedded
Linux OS, offering unparalleled stability, performance, and
cutting-edge features. While a conventional CMS solution
requires dedicated PC hardware, proprietary VMS software,
camera license fees, frequent updates, and maintenance, X5S
standalone NVRs offer a superior turn-key solution at lower
prices. Full spectrum cross compatibility with our IP cameras,
DVRs, HDX DVRs, NVRs, and video encoders make the X5S
platform a completely integrated VMS solution.
Choose from models featuring integrated AVA (Ascendent
Video Analytics), Ultra HD 4K video, 360°Panoramic Fisheye
support with dewarping, hot-swappable RAID arrays, up to
250 channels per server, and virtually unlimited storage. While
X5S NVRs operate autonomously and independently from
each other, any NVR can record video feeds from any other
NVRs, DVRs, HDX DVRs, NVRs, IP cameras, or video encoders.
This makes our NVRs the most versatile solution on the
market; perfect for any application from residential and small
businesses to multi-national corporations, airports, casinos,
universities, law enforcement, military, and shopping centers.

Note: C Series IP cameras are denoted by -CS at the end of their model number.

4K NVR models support up to 12MP resolution and AVA analytics on some C-Series IP cameras.

Note the number of cameras displayed in Live View and Playback may be less than the total number of cameras on each NVR, dependent on frame rate, bitrate, and resolution.

Not all 1U models can be configured with 12TB storage.
