AFIANT Network Video Recorder Overview

The AFIANT Network Video Recorder (NVR) is a complete solution for the management of a surveillance network. It seamlessly integrates into new and existing infrastructures providing high quality video and remote management from any PC, anywhere in the world.

AFIANT Network Video Recorder System Architecture

The AFIANT Network Video Recorder connects to any TCP/IP network infrastructure (LAN, WAN etc) to manage cameras, video servers and other network attached security devices. The AFIANT provides multi-platform software for the complete viewing, playback and control on any PC workstation over the network.

AFIANT Architecture


Integrated into the AFIANT NVR is military strength encryption providing secure remote login and data transmission over a network. This guarantees confidentiality and integrity of video and prevents unauthorised access and modification.


The AFIANT is an autonomous, network attached device. Unlike traditional digital video recorders (DVRs) this allows the AFIANT to be physically secured anywhere with a network connection, preventing tampering, removal or accidental damage.


All of the AFIANT components have been rigorously tested and certified, ensuring reliable operation and long service. It runs the Linux operating system to achieve maximum security and reliability.


From a small home owner to a large corporation, the AFIANT scales gracefully to meet the demand. Peer-to-peer technology allows multiple AFIANT systems to work together, and enables additional AFIANT systems to be added as required.
