I currently have an IP Swann system, but my desire is growing for the smooth looking, non bandwidth hogging feed on SDI systems. I have a question though. Will this http://www.costco.com/Swann-1080p-SDI-PTZ-%2820x%29-Camera.product.100082844.html PTZ cam work with this http://www.costco.com/Swann-8-Channel-HD-SDI-Security-System-with-2TB-Hard-Drive-and-8-High-Resolution-Cameras.product.100037977.html NVR?

Yes, SDI is plug & play system without proprietary protocol like IPC. I have so far tested my SDI DVR with camera from almost 10 vendors & all of them works. BTW, if the info & pictures on the Costco pages are correct, they are pairing the HIK SDI cam DS-2CC51D3S-VPIR & DS-2CC11D3S-IR with the Dahua SDI DVR.

Thank you for your informative reply.

Do you have any issues at all with your SDI cam setup? Pro's/Cons? I'm trying to talk myself into returning my IP system and get this SDI, because I REALLY want that PTZ cam, and they don't have one comparable at that price point. Not looking forward to re-running 8 100" cables either.

The pros & cons is already stated everywhere but for your case main advantage is you already have your coaxial runs! If you need to test drive my SDI DVR you can PM me for the details. I can also hook up my HIK IPC into 1 of the channel for you to compare, but note that it is not a 100% fair comparison because the IPC is view via my Nexus 10 & output into 1 of the SDI channel via HDMI to SDI converter but will more or less shows you the difference.
