Uniview OEM Directory

By: IPVM Team, Published on Sep 11, 2019

This directory lists 20+ companies that OEM products from Uniview, with a graphic and links to company websites below.

It does not cover all Uniview OEMs as many hide the association and we have only listed ones we have verified by examining shipping records, product documentation or testing products.

If you have feedback on this list or others to add, email us at info@ipvm.com or leave a comment below.

Note: There are certainly far more Uniview OEMs than this list as our information sources are primarily North American based. Even within North America, surely there are some others not yet listed. Email us at info@ipvm.com or leave a comment with more suggestions.

How To Tell

A few techniques can help verify if your provider is using Uniview OEM equipment.

Shipping Records

Shipping records often show that a company OEMs from Uniview. For example here is a series of shipments from Uniview to Digital Peripheral Solutions (Q-See), Revo, and Security System Depot.

Shipping Records From Uniview To OEMs

However, note that many OEMs do not get shipments directly from Uniview in China or hide their shipping records so all will not show.

MAC OUI Lookup

The MAC address OUI of an IP camera or recorder often will report as Uniview even though it is sold as another brand. Here is a such an example:

Here is a MAC OUI lookup tool so you can check your own devices.

However, more sophisticated OEMs will have their own MAC address OUI assigned to mask the origin, so this is not universal.

Web Interface Similarities

Typically, Uniview OEMs use the same fundamental web interface as Uniview with mostly cosmetic changes (logo, colors, button placement, etc.). The image below demonstrates this with a comparison of a Uniview OEM Geovision camera with Uniview's own, with mainly cosmetic changes and some different labels:

Geovision-Uniview Web Interface Very Similar

Discovery Tool Connectivity

Most Uniview OEMs will be discovered by Uniview's EZTools discovery tool just like any other Uniview camera or NVR. For example, here is a Geovision OEM turret camera discovered by EZTools:
