Customer has an Pelco DX8100 DVR which is no longer supported (I bet that's news to everyone). Anyway, I need to add 10 name manufacturer cameras to cover some new entrances. Would like to install IP domes and connect, via analog, to open DVR channels, then later migrate these cameras, with existing analog cameras, to IP. I know that Panasonic cameras have an NTSC monitor output, but per their manuals, these outputs should not be used for anything other than set up and trouble shooting. Possible use a D-A converter but i seem to have difficulty locating such a product that does not cost more than the customer is willing to pay (not to mention that the converter will be scrapped when the customer goes IP).
Suggestions? Anyone know of an IP camera with an analog out? Inexpensive decoder?
