I purchased a 700tvl bullet camera from you guys in December to replace one of my old bullet cameras on my home system. I use a dedicated PC that has a cheap DVR card capturing the video from the cameras. I know the DVR card is not capturing 700tvls.
Is there a suggested DVR card for the 700 tvl cameras that you sell or do you only suggest actual DVRs? I have been relatively happy with the system I have used for years but I would like to get the full video quality out of the cameras. FYI: I currently have a 2 camera setup but am looking to expand to a 4 camera system. I will never need more than 4 cameras.
That link is to 4 channel DVRs. The first two on the page would be the right fit for you I think. As for a PCI card. I have no recommendation on it. The two types I have used were not very good to begin with. Every time I had to search the playback took for ever as the PC did not really have the processor to operate smoothly. Our DVRs can be setup with remote access too if that is a concern, as well as alarm and email features.
