Will the GEO accept UNV firmware?

Just because the housing is the same as unv it does not mean the chipset or sensor inside is the same. 

As undisclosed 1 said it would be interesting to see direct comparison to UNV branded model.

My point of view, those h/w will be same at least.
4MP sensor for surveillance purpouse seems to be the exclusive place of OV4689.
From the unit price point of view, encode chip have to the same possibility. that is probably Hi3516A.
But I can't know of truth until disassembly. I expect further research by IPVM.

How do you feel about the both serial numbers starting with 210235?

Their speed dome camera such as SD2322-IR is also UNV's OEM, unfortunately.
I'm very worried that OEM cam will replace genuine cam.
