As the newest member of the IC Realtime Video Ecosystem, our top-of-the-line FlexSmartAi HDVR-MX1608-1U5MP-AI1 is the most "inclusive" coax-based, 16 channel HD-AVS security camera DVR we have ever developed. Not only are the MX series FlexSmartAi HDVRs commercial-grade security tools, IC Realtime also gave them cutting-edge tech like built-in facial recognition, "one wire" video+audio+control over coax, and even 4K UHD output and easy "plug & play" installation with camera format auto-matching that senses & accommodates legacy coax camera technology.

IC Realtime's MX-AVR series coax digital video recorders are "Pentabrid" class - meaning they auto-recognize & record all coax security video formats for easy "plug-n-play" camera installations. Their direct-connection rear coax camera ports auto-detect & switch to support AVS/HDCVI/AHD/TVI format HD over coax cameras up to 5MP resolution. FlexSmartAi MX-HDVRs are so 21st century they even accommodate older 20th-century standard analog cameras under their CVBS (Composite Video Baseband Signal) settings.
This auto-adaptation capability enables quick & easy existing coax security camera recorder & camera system upgrades even in mixed camera format DVR security systems.

When paired with IC Realtime's HD-AVS cameras, say goodbye to extra camera control or audio transmission wires. IC Realtime's HD-AVS system "piggy-backs" HD video, audio & camera control functions together on a single BNC camera cable. This means easy installation & complete camera control of compatible HD-AVS cameras with no additional control or audio input wires. For existing systems, the HDVR-MX1608 includes a rear RS-485 control port that can be enabled through HDVR-MX1608's on-screen control panel to run older analog PTZs.

Everybody expects more from today's HD over coax digital video recorders, and the FlexSmartAi HDVR-MX1608 delivers on all fronts, starting with massive video processing power, 50% more video channels, and 4K HDMI output. IC Realtime's top-of-the-line HDVR-MX1608 has 128MB per second processing & throughput and is capable of 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) HDMI output for complete compatibility with the newest 4K monitors and your most demanding video installations.


Although HDVR-MX1608 has 16 direct connect BNC channel inputs on the backplane, the HDVR-MX1608 will actually record 24 video channels - 16 direct BNC + 8 IP channels. You heard right - it's like buying a 16 channel DVR & getting a 24 channel instead. The HDVR-MX1608 delivers 50% more camera capacity to record & display live video from 8 additional network IP cameras up to 6MP resolution using its rear network port. The FlexSmartAi HDVR-MX1608 punches above its weight on video channels, camera flexibility, making it a genuine, commercial-grade video security tool with incredibly cutting-edge features.

With HDVR-MX1608, video signal range is no longer an issue for large-scale coax & Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) installations. The MX-AVR series coaxial video system supports super long-distance transmission over both coax cable and UTP for flexible & economical video wiring. HDVR-MX1608 delivers coax video ranges up to 2,200+ feet (700m) for 4K/4MP, and over 2,600 feet (800m) for 1080P so large area / long run coax or UTP installations are no problem.

The FlexSmartAi HDVR-MX1608 is the perfect auto-format matching replacement for an older 16 channel security camera DVR. But with eight additional IP camera channels available and an impressive set of advanced features, the HDVR-MX1608 can also be the future-proof core of new residential or commercial coax-based camera installations.
Higher resolution cameras mean larger data streams - but no worries here either, since HDVR-MX1608 uses a new AI-based compression that works with IC Realtime's Smart H.265+ video codec. H.265+ AI-based video compression delivers up to 50% more hard drive storage with no image degradation.

HDVR-MX1608's built-in FlexSmartAi system enables advanced Intelligent Motion Detection (IMD) perimeter monitoring. IMD uses a deep-learning algorithm for dependable human & vehicle motion detection and accurate programmable IVS/tripwire performance, generating 90% fewer false alarms. The advanced IMD algorithm analyzes motion and ignores random "pixel change" movements, like animal activity or leaves in the wind, but recognizing people and vehicle shapes, sending alerts only when human or vehicle motion or tripwire/perimeter intrusion is confirmed.

For 21st-century video security in even the most sensitive locations, FlexSmartAi HDVR-MX1608 delivers Real-Time Face Recognition on any 2 of its 16 BNC channels. Discerned facial features include gender, age, expression, glasses, mustache, mouth/mask, and HDVR-MX1608 can capture & record faces with metadata tags. The HDVR-MX1608 can internally store 10,000 face images in up to 10 built-in facial recognition databases. Each database face record can be updated with name, gender, birthday, address, or certificate types/numbers, to identify individuals in the database. Once set for recognition, FlexSmartAi MX-AVR series AVRs can issue a "STRANGER" alert if a scanned face is not found to alert you when an unknown face is detected.

As part of the IC Realtime Video Ecosystem, our FlexSmartAi MX-AVR series represents the next generation of high-speed, adaptable AI-enhanced coax video recorders. Of course, HDVR-MX1608 works flawlessly with our free Android & iPhone (IoS) apps, with other video devices through our free PC & Mac based ICRSS central station software.
As part of the IC Realtime Video Ecosystem, the HDVR-MX1608 can work directly with the IC Realtime phone apps. Once your HDVR-MX1608 is online, download & install either of the apps, scan the unit's code, and voila!
And speaking of IC Realtime's Dash series and Video Ecosystem - you can make a few of the eight IP cameras a Dash series home wifi camera. Add a Dash Dinger video doorbell camera, or maybe a Flooder Yard Light or a new Orbit or Guardian indoor intercam to really bring an HDVR-MX1608 based system up to 21st century standards.

Use FlexSmartAi MX-AVR series HDVR-MX1608 on your next coax cable-based 16 channel security camera DVR installation and bring it into the 21st century, on time & in-budget - and in 4k output resolution. If you're looking for the best video 16 channel security recorder for new or existing 16 channel BNC/coax-based camera systems - with the added benefit of 8 extra "bonus" IP channels and 4K HDMI video output - IC Realtime's HDVR-MX1608-1U5MP-AI1 delivers.
