    Looking to upgrade my company's cameras. Currently they are the webcam style cameras running the iVista software. These aren't too bad but we are epxanding and I always wanted comething with a little more FPS and clarity.

    Can anyone offer any suggestions? :wavey:

    E-bay has great prices on cam systems, I'd recommend running the coax cable for them and dedicating one computer to a fill out DVR system, its not as much as you'd think.

    It is strongly recommended that you keep a seperate server for the ladies room and up-skirt water cooler cameras.

    Pelconet offers a pretty decent array of IP cameras/surveillance servers.

    They're expensive, but each camera has it's on IP/web interface built in and can be locked down with NT or simple authentication. Very good enterprise solution especially if you want to have multiple people with limited access to the video feeds.

    The only other thing I'd recommend is looking into IRAS, it's expensive, but a surveillance/dvr setup could prove very handy.

    +1 for Pelco. I'm a Pelco distributor if you need pricing. Their products are bar none.. I've engineered countless Pelco systems into data centers, etc. Great product.

    I use a Dedicated Micros BX2 DVR setup with some Pelco Spectra PTZ cameras. Love it! If you can spring the cash, I recommend this setup.
