What DVR for MVP-8400's?

ImpaqtImpaqt Junior MemberPosts: 155
I've used the Axis boxes to stream video to MVP's for a while. Very nice for front Door Cams....

I have a CLient with 4 Cameras that not only wants to View them on his MVP-8400... He wants to record them. THe DVR's I've used inthe past have always been stand alone and views on local monitors.... Now, I could of course take the Monitor Output of the DVR into the axis box and do it that way, but seems to me someone should make a DVR that has the streaming capabilities build in already...


ANy Suggestions?

Thanks

    I've just recently installed one of these: http://www.atvideo.com/Products/FA16/index.htm . It seems to do everything you are looking for.

    I just used a GE Digia4 which has a built in web server and streams MPEG4 but that won't help with the MVP so you would need a MJPEG server like the AXIS. It has RS232 but isn't functional yet so any commands would have to be sent via HTTP.

    Yeah, Many of my commercial jobs in the past got the Kalatel/GE Intelogix stuff. Cetainly doesnt fit this application.

    Looking into the ATV Stuff.. Looks promising.

    GOt some info on the ATV and wont work the way I hoped.

    Is there any other way to do streaming video on a 8400 other than Dynamic Imaging?

    The MVP only supports MJPEG but I think most if not all the other panels support MPEG-2 and some support MPEG-4.

    I didn't see thing on the ATV about streaming anything other than having a standard HTTP web server.

    Maybe I could just G-4 Computer control it.. :)

    Looks like an Axis box and a DVR so far...

    Could you elaborate a little bit more about the Axis box? Where are you buying them from? What is the price range on them?. How do you stream the picture to the 8400?

    They're talking about a MJPEG server. NTSC or PAL video in and a network MJPEG stream out.

    There are several varieties and sizes but a single server like the AXIS 241S is between $400 - $500.

    It can take a single video camera and serve it over the network or take multiple cameras into a quad viewer multiplexer/switcher out to the AXIS and control all your cameras with the abilty to show quad pictures or singles video streams. This only allows one stream at a time. You can larger servers that can take multiple cameras directly and serve multiple streams simultaneously.

    Very high quality video streams!

    Thanks Vining. Do you have a rough idea about the price for a 16 channel?

    A 4 video server card is around $900.00 a 12 video server budle (3, 4 server cards and a 1 rack unit card shell is $3K). They have a much larger card shell that can hold around 10 cards.

    These are very expensive which is why it's cheaper to use camera / quad switcher or even an autopatch switcher would be less expensive. You could use a 4 camera server and a switcher to provide 4 simultaneous streams.

    Thanks Vining. I'm assuming this prices are retail, right?

    Yeah thats retail. I just bought a new quad 4 video AXIS 241Q on Ebay for a little over $400.00

    I stream my tivos, kaleidescape movie players and my video cameras to the 8400 panels using multiple AXIS servers.

    No sound but the video on the wireless panel is cool.
