Synology® Announces Network Video Recorder NVR216

Up to 9 channels of HD monitoring with expandable storage. Mobile apps ready for anywhere access.

Taipei, Taiwan—November 26th, 2015—Synology® Inc. today unveiled Network Video Recorder NVR216, with expandable storage for surveillance footages and mobile apps for anywhere access. Featuring a dedicated 1080p HDMI output and supporting up to 4 or 9 IP camera channels, NVR216 is designed for offices and retail stores where space is precious, to monitor and manage surveillance feeds and IP cameras at ease.

"More and more small business or shops need a live view over their property to ensure their personnel and assets safety. They also need a compact and expandable solution," said Chad Chiang, Product Manager at Synology Inc. "That's why we roll out NVR216, designed to let users directly monitor and manage cameras via local display. In addition, the storage available for video footage is easily expandable and IP cameras can be added at any time, up to 4 or 9 depending on the model."

NVR216 is equipped with a dedicated 1080p HDMI port that makes it easy to connect with a monitor and display up to 9 channels at 720p/30FPS of surveillance feeds without any costly computer. A wide range of ports, including USB 3.0 and USB 2.0, enables NVR216 to connect to a mouse and keyboard to navigate between different camera streams and management tools. Designed for low power consumption, NVR216 only consumes 14W while providing 9 channels of camera streaming and continuous recording. When your surveillance footages take more space, NVR216 can be scaled up to 4 drives by connecting it to an expansion unit DX213.

Through Surveillance Station, users are able to leverage Live View panel with on-screen operations to monitor video streams from multiple IP cameras, take advantage of the Timeline panel to select a date and time and then playback recordings from multiple channels at once, and set up smart analytics tools, such as Motion detection, to catch suspicious behavior. With DS cam mobile app, users can access Surveillance Station anywhere via iOS and Android devices.  

NVR216 is powered by Synology Surveillance Station which offers an intuitive interface and rich surveillance features. Running on Surveillance Station, Synology NVRs won "NVR Excellence Award" at Secutech Taipei for four consecutive years 2012 - 2015. For more information about NVR216, please visit
