Ganz Digimaster.

Internal DVD-Writer, USB ports, MPEG-4, PTZ controls, Ethernet (it doesn't have a built-in Web server like Dedicated Micros though. You have to use an external program to view remotely).

Best thing is the price. Less than half the price of a Dedicated Micros.

I'm kinda a fan of GeoVision stuff. I like the pro options (and actually the built in pro features).Now these are dedicated computer based systems (never used their standalones - but they are just cards in a box) but I have used them in pretty high-end areas and have had great success. The base computer you use MUST be to spec - or better. Hard drive space and memory cant be "too big".

Most other one's I use are the big boys (Bosch, DM, Panasonic, Sharp etc) with obvious great results.

I have tried the ARM stuff as well, not bad for an entry level unit. I'm considering trying Intellicam some time as another entry level unit, but in-stock issues abound (if it ain't on the shelf - don't sell it to a customer - you may not get it for a while!)

I like the Gen IV Technology JS-RTA Series from Intellicam, H.264 compression and can be configured with up to 6 Terabytes of internal storage. I have a number of these in apartment complexes and the remote client software works great if you want to view one or many sites from one computer. I also like the ICRealtime Max series DVR's. Just my opinion.

Welcome to the forum Trace,

Have you had any issues with product availability from Intellicam?

Only reason I asked is I put a couple on hold waiting for shipment, received payment from my customers, and it was 5-6 weeks of back-order issues and I had to refund one and offer something else to the other.

That kinda stinked...

Jim

I too like GeoVision. It's great for larger installations where the extra features make it really stand out. I like being able to gather together multiple sites into one interface.

DigiMerge is also on my good list. They've come up with a nice user interface and the unit doesn't die when you record and playback and view remotely all at the same time.


I installed a Digital Watchdog unit once.. never again.


There are so many out there that use the same crappy Chinese firmware, that it's hard to find a good one.

Has anyone used the J-peg 2000 DVR? for a small 8 - 16 channel you cannot beat the price. 8 ch. $799 w/500 gig 16 ch. w/1 Ter $998 awsome little recorder for the price easy set up although its client software. For bigger jobs I use Verint.

I use Speco first, The linux based DVR's work great and are cheap. My Techs have no complaints. I also use Digi Merge when they have sales.
