Converting An Existing Analog System To IP

Hi Everyone,

We have a site that is currently an running Axis IP cameras. The site also has some existing Bosch analogue ptz's that only a few years old still function quite well. The client would like to integrate these with their IP camera network.

Is using an encoder the best course of action to achieve this? and what might be some of the pro and cons in doing so? Or would it better in the long run the cameras where just replaced with IP's
