John,

would be curious to hear feedback on what premium customers would be willing to pay for NVRs with embedded PoE. In other words, if the cost of an NVR with embedded PoE is more than a NVR with a seperate low cost PoE switch, will customers be willing to pay more for the all in one solution? Also, if the NVR did have PoE, do all inputs have to support PoE or can just a % have them like 4 out of 16 inputs or 8 out of 32?

Thanks

Dan, good questions.

For the first one, I don't think it's a pricing issue as much as an install simplification for certain market segments. Residential is clearly one obvious example where it's already being done, though in that case, there's really no price premium as the damn NVR is not really that much more expensive than a PoE switch. For enterprise customers, I don't think there's much value at all in embedding the PoE switch as the cost savings would be insignificant and many would prefer to have it separate anyway.

On the second question, I think it needs to be all inputs. I cannot understand why there are 8 channel NVRs with only 4 PoE ports because you're still stuck with buying an setting up a PoE switch for half the ports.

My suspicion is that integrating a PoE switch in a NVR would be attractive to banking and small box retailers that want to simplify large scale roll-outs and minimize space dedicated to such equipment. In those cases, all channels being PoE would be important.
