Price Points for Hybrid DVRs Examined

By: John Honovich, Published on May 12, 2009

Over the last few years, the MSRP of 16 channel enterprise DVRs were in the $7,000 to $9,000 range (AD, Verint, March, etc. - products that offered 3rd party integration, centralized management, etc).

In the last few months, with new product announcements and the maturation of newer entrants (like Exacq, 3xLogic, Airship, etc.), the price points for hybrid enterprise DVRs is now falling toward or below $5,000 MSRP.

The other important aspect of falling price points is that all of these units support a fairly broad range of IP cameras, making them very attractive as migration options (see the review of 3xLogic below).

If you are a dealer or buyer of hybrid DVRs, you should be evaluating the prices you be re-evaluating the prices you pay. Competitors, of course, should also take note.

[Update 2012: Hybrid DVR prices remain roughly the same years later. Providers now emphasize the lack of annual upgrade / license fees as a differentiator against VMS software.]
