Upgrading Analog CCTV To New IP Based System?

Hello,

We have an integrator currently tasked with upgrading 32 analog cameras to an IP VMS (DW Spectrum or Exacqvision)

The integrator needs to be able to upgrade the cameras using the existing analog wire (coax) and ideally stream the analog feed to an IP stream preferably with ONVIF capabilities (so Exacq can pull motion detection)

We have looked into converting the coax to IP with adapters but it seems to costly.

Does anyone have experience with analog cameras added to an IP based system?

 

Thank you.
