If some video surveillance manufacturers were grammar school students, their report cards might say, “Does not work well with others.”
But that is by design.
Granted, some end user customers might feel more confident in a closed system where the options are defined by the manufacturer — a single manufacturer.
Others might prefer a “Best of Breed” system with open source components from one or more manufacturers.
For example, we at DW® Complete Surveillance Solutions are always happy to have end users in all vertical markets look to us for their complete open source systems:
     • Complete HD over Coax™ Star-Light™ Camera and VMAX® A1™ DVR Systems
     • Complete IP MEGApix® Camera and VMAX® IP Plus™ NVR-Based Systems
     • Complete IP MEGApix® Camera and Blackjack® Server-Based Systems
However, when they want to use DW® equipment with their existing gear — such as transitioning to DW Spectrum® IPVMS as their management platform — we are confident that end users and their integrators will all give us good reports:
“DW® works well with others.”
Please consider asking your professional integrator about DW® Complete Surveillance Solutions.
