The Changing Technology of Video Recording
Pros and Cons of the latest systems
by Bob Mesnik

Recording video from surveillance cameras has changed over the years. First there were Video Cassette Recorders (VCR’s) and then Digital Video Recorders (DVRs) and now there are Network Video Recorders (NVR). VCRs were around for many years and have been replaced by DVRs that use hard drives. Now, NVRs that support the latest network attached IP cameras, are starting to replace the DVR. This article reviews the technology and provides information that will help you determine the right system for your application.

Many people have asked, “Is this something I can do myself?”   And our answer in the overwhelming majority of cases is: “Yes you can!” This article reviews how you can specify and install PA over IP systems.
