Using an Amcrest 4-in-1 Camera
Quadbrid or 4-in-1 technology, allows for a flexible means of providing HD-CVI, HD-TVI, AHD, and Analog formatted video to your DVR. The signal is transmitted uncompressed, which eliminates latency and allows for real-time, highly reliable video security without loss or delay. The cameras connect point-to-point directly to the DVR (BNC) which provides a highly secure, closed network, as well as a painless and non-complex plug-and-play setup process. The toggle switch for your 4-in-1 camera is represented in the image below:
Most Amcrest DVRs will require you to set the camera to HD-CVI or Analog (960H) settings and may not be compatible with HD-TVI or AHD. Ensure your 4-in-1 camera's toggle switch is set to the proper setting as indicated in the diagram below.
Note: If the proper mode configuration is not set, you will not be able to view your camera on your DVR. Please make sure you have the proper settings on your camera before you begin setting up or installing.
