What 3rd Party Encoders Can I Use With Bosch BVMS?

We have a customer who has been expanding his surveillnace system based on Bosch's BVMS product. They recently updated to the latest version 4.xx (not sure which one it is exactly). This customer keeps asking for standard resolution (about 500TVL) cameras and Bosch encoders which tend to work relatively acceptably (should they be compatible with the running software version) but feels like money down the drain regarding the overall outcome and the outdated technology.

I am aware of the possibility to connect IP and HD cameras directly to the system itself (which would also be cheaper for them) but again they are very sceptic about that. I would agree with them regarding storage requirements. On the other hand they are open to discuss different encoders (mainly i guess because of the increased Bosch cost).

I was wondering whether someone had relative experience in the past and moreover if anyone knows of any Bosch BVMS v4.xx compatible encoders out there.

This is the first time i post without disclosing my name because of the specific customer.

Thank you all in advance
