The Classic Kobalt Series MV-L8 supersedes all others in it’s class. Our DVRs come engineered to RESPOND!! Finding and reviewing footage is super fast with the powerful and easy to use Preview and Museum search functions. All Kobalt Series DVRs are Realtime with recording resolutions up to DVD ( D1 ) quality. This is all enveloped inside an ergonomic stylish designed case which complements any environment of which it is installed.

Kobalt’s performance, like that of it’s big brother Kratos Series, is attributed to the custom designed and engineered SoC (System on Chip). These were developed in house and is unique to MHD systems. Other DVR manufactures use off the shelf computing components which fundamentally save cost but impact on performance. On trials, the Kobalt series would playback in reverse and forward effortlessly with plenty of power to continue recording. Others in it’s class simply could not stand up to the punishment and jumped and skipped frames missing vital details especially in reverse.  

The Classic Kobalt Series also has a comprehensive ability to be remotely controlled and managed. Its System Management Software (SMS) has been developed to do all the tasks you need when away from the machine. Backup, Review and even setup the DVR can all be achieved via this software. Notifications via email can be sent to your phone. The Kobalt also supports the popular Android and iPhone smart phones with easy to use and effective apps.

No matter where you are, your property will be safe and accessible 24/7.
