I totally agree $2000 is ridiculous especially when I have a stack of 4 channel HD-SDI DVRs for $250 each and cameras ranging from $100 to $200.

So far I haven't seen any compatibility issues with different manufactures of HD-SDI products

Two grand for four channels? Quite steep, especially when you consider HD-SDI cameras are priced in the same ballpark as IP cameras.

Marshall's VS-541-HDSDI - 2.0MP 20X Zoom IP Box Camera is $2k. I can buy three or more 2MP IP cameras for the cost of one of their HD-SDI cameras. Adding an HD-SDI encoder puts that even further out of reach, with virtually no benefit over IP. Even adding EoC converters to the mix would still leave full-IP at approximately $800 to $1,00 per channel versus HD-SDI at $2,500 per channel.

i still haven't seen anyone address your other point at the very top of the thread, and is, what vms's would even support the sdi-to-ip encoders? it's all well and good that you could drop a couple grand to convert your sdi cameras to ip, but it doesn't do much good if you don't have a vms or nvr that can record that stream.

I saw a HD-SDI encoder at ASIS and they had Milestone and think Exacq connected to it. I laughed at them when they told me the price was $2K MSRP. Also it took a lot of coaxing but they finally admitted that the unit did not have onboard motion detection so you had to use a VMS with server based motion detection.

Since your customer already stated no more analog cameras, why not just convert them over to ip slowly with a hybrid recorder and call it good?

We already installed a hybrid solution for the customer. The point I am trying to make is it would be cheaper to use a hdsdi encoder with hdsdi cameras then use IP cameras where you will have to use coax converters or re-cable every analog to convert them to HD.

I actually think the encoder is a good idea. I dont see why it would be so expensive since the DVR is a lot cheaper now.

Probably because there is little or no interest. HD-SDI is aimed at low-end users, as are DVRs (SD or HD). Typically, standalone encoder/VMS systems are aimed at the higher-end users.
