  1. Quad will display all four cameras in one image - really only giving you (4) Cif images. Sequential will sequence 1, then 2, then 3, then 4. Then they have an option on that encoder to do (4) channels at 7FPS @ D1 each. Which is the advisable option for THAT ACTi encoder.
  2. Actually it's 240FPS @ CIF. I believe it's this unit http://computarganz.com/product_view.cfm?product_id=731
  3. As far as I'm aware, and I looked around many times for this in my previous position, there aren't any worth mentioning. Well.... there is always this: http://www.mobotix.com/eng_US/content/view/full/37540

    Spotted PTZ Wireless Install

    My friends just look at me like I'm crazy or tell me to get a life lol.
  5. Yo uare right about the PoE switch, it communicates with device, but some PoE injectors are passive and, they just inject power to the cable so it is possible to fry camera. I am gonna have to disagree with you here.. I have used many POE switches and injectors and I have never fried ANY network device with them. I have even accidently used Non-standard devices with POE devices and never fried anything. This includes POE+ injectors and network devices. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power_over_Ethernet There are some companies using "dumb" injectors that just push power regardless of whether the device needs it. Look at the new outreach max from veracity for instance.

    AXIS P3346

    Well two issues with ONVIF currently: a) You have a number of companies that only partially integrate ONVIF and then it only works sometimes. Any company that can display ONVIF compliancy documents should work just fine - and it's easy to test. b) Until the recent release of ONVIF 2.0 only Video/Audio was supported. No I/O or additional features. I know we are ONVIF compliant and have tested with three ONVIF compliant VMS companies and work just fine. Sorry I don't believe it till I see it. Sent you a PM regarding this.

    AXIS P3346

    Office buildings, in and out. Test bed in my 50' driveway. Interesting. On the cam page it says domes are indoor only. Thanks for the info. It's ridiculous that Axis doesn't have better low-light performance. Adam I'm not clear why certain cameras are not compatible with ZM, because there is simply not enough info available in the time I have to dedicate to this. I suspect that the URL is basically a web interface, which denies many of the special features of a camera maybe like remote zoom, auto-iris, etc. Is ZM -only- compatible with cameras that have a web interface? Surely Exacq can manipulate some cameras at a more hardware level, to reach extended features? I am not an expert and do not pretend to be, but am open to information. (... directed to the person who said I don't know what I'm talking about... no ****. I am a developer, not a security camera technician) The reason Zoneminder doesn't support a huge list of manufacturers cameras is: Untill recently, there was no standard for IP Video No one is pushing it into a job that needs to work with a specific camera so no urgency to get integration done. No drive from Dealers(who don't use it for the most part) to get it working with their favorite cameras. Zoneminder could triple their compatibility by integrating ONVIF.

    Play back is very bad :(

    Agreed. Basically your going to pay 3x as much for 30FPS(realtime) per CH D1 recorder as you would a 7FPS Per CH D1 recorder. Take a look at this example and then decide if 3x the money(and 1/4 the storage time) is worth it. http://www.panasonic.com/business/security/demos/PSS-recording-rates.html

    Frame = 4CIF Thats old VCR terminology.

    Well you don't want QCIF either lol. 2CIF/4CIF/D1 is what you want, with D1 being the highest of those options. RES = Pixels QCIF (160x120) CIF (320x240) 2CIF (704x240) 4CIF (640x480) D1 (720x480)
  13. Yeah, my second link points to GEM's version of this. Didn't see that.
  14. The actual ethernet limitation is 100m or 328ft. Can you push this? Sometimes Do I recommend trying? No Soundy, they also make IP over UTP convertors that work at around the same distances as the coax ones and only require a pair(basically a IP to Coax converter with built in Balun). But yeah, I thought it was pretty funny too.

    IR Illuminators for Parking lot

    Yeah I have both the 183 and the 940 on my desk right now. I'm going to check it out on my 1080p Box later this week. Took Theia long enough though... they were talking about these lenses over a year ago.
