Their analog stuff is all AHD, I know that. Wonder why they didn't go TVI instead.

Could be, but how are you so sure?

Give the matching Hik model.

Honest question, why is this noteworthy? I was always under the impression that overall DW was a "brand" not a "manufacturer" in the sense of actually designing and producing all their own products.

I've never really paid much attention to them, have their previous products all been of unique origin?

Generally, I think it's not noteworthy if random "manufacturer" X is OEMing manufacturer Y. But given Hikvision's recent movement into more OEM territory, another known brand relabeling them would be worth knowing.

That being said, I'm not so sure this is a Hikvision OEM. It doesn't look physically like them and the web interface is different.

Ok, who wants to be the one to break it to Dillabaugh?
