What is dual-tracking?
Dual-tracking refers to the two ways that a TrackMix camera simultaneously uses to auto track an object in both the wide-angle and zoomed views.
In the panoramic view, which is captured by the camera's wide-angle lens, the camera pans and tilts to keep the detected objects within its field of view; In the zoomed view, which is produced by the two lenses cooperatively, the camera zooms in to the targeted object (which is within the camera's field) to closely follow its movement. It's notable that the TrackMix camera uses advanced technology to restore details and definition to the zoomed-in image, enhancing the image quality.
This can help you track the situation and details at the same time, without manually making the camera pan, tilt or zoom in.
What is hybrid zoom?
Hybrid zoom is a combination of optical zoom and digital zoom. Reolink TrackMix series are equipped with a wide-angle lens and a telephoto lens. First, the wide-angle lens provides digital zoom. Then it switches to the telephoto lens for optical zoom. After that, the telephoto lens zooms in digitally. Thus, compared to digital zoom, hybrid zoom can retain more details and provide sharper images when zooming in.
2. When it works with an NVR, the recordings can be saved to the NVR.
Note: (1)For best compatibility, do not use the camera with third-party NVRs.
(2)Although the camera occupies only one channel for recording, it will produce two separate recording files.
For the NVR with the Hw_H3MB18, Hw_N3MB01, and Hw_N2MB02 hardware, you need to upgrade the NVR's firmware to the latest version for video displaying.
If you want to buy a new compatible NVR, you can check its hardware version on its Specs page before placing the order.
