My brother and I just flew back into So. Cal yesterday from the show. The free food and open bars this year were all over the place. Was a good show, found some new lines and products to fill some niches in our arsenal.
Saw that razberi product at a booth with many other products. Seems like a nice product for small IP jobs, which I am starting to get into.http://www.razberi.net/products/recorders/raz-m4/
Razberi has basic free software that will run on the NVR.
However it seems that onssi wants me to use their software ocularis http://www.onssi.com/products/ocularis-overview
and then so does exaqt https://www.exacq.com/products/EL_series_IP_servers.html
which wants me to buy their hardware and software too.
The software between the bunch seems to do stuff only seen in the movies. I wonder what the most cost effective software is for small 4 - 16 camera jobs would be? Customers want Ipad/phone/ android playback and stream to all browsers.
What's up with the "Dahua" style DVR's, I saw units from other companies in the main area and the China/Korea town area that has the exact same "PSS" software and functionality. Are these companies copying the stuff legally? Seems odd when I asked questions and they gave me a blank look. One guy said his would run on all browsers, and showed me the setting for RSTP port or something to that effect. Would this work for Dahua? using safari, chrome, firefox, ie etc.
Saw these enclosures from Moog/Videolarm http://www.videolarm.com/product/camera-enclosures-ptz-fixed/fusion-camera-housing/
awesome cooling and enclosures for any camera that will withstand the elements.
Still looking for an "eyeball" style camera which has a video test port and OSD without taking the camera down. I guess this could do the trick from ATV http://www.atvideo.com/products/tc2812w-tc0650w
but still would like to have a little room behind for connections if mounting it to a concrete wall with no "wall bracket" which looks ugly.
Too bad it's over, I'm like a kid in a candy store....that's why my wife will not go. I could talk shop for hours and hours, usually I'm just out in the field supervising guys and installing/programming and don't talk to anyone. It's good to be able to talk to people about your passion and they actually know what your talking about.
