Wouldn't it feel good to know your DVR manufacturer has been building and servicing PCs and PC related equipment for over 20 years? Think about it. How often do the desktop PCs in your office lock up or have other 'minor' problems such as the terrible 'blue screen of death'?
Doesn't sound like an acceptable glitch for a security application, does it. Obviously a PC-based DVR has to be very well engineered to avoid this all-too-common problem. That takes a great deal of experience.
And let's not forget about experience in the security industry. How about over 12 years of research in video capture technology and 10 years of testing and producing actual PC-based DVRs that can already be found in major corporations all over the world?
Many DVR manufacturers out there just popped up out of nowhere after figuring out the possible applications of the PCs ability to capture and handle digital video. But you don't want a manufacturer that just grabbed the first digital video technology they could find, right?
Perhaps the choice isn't so hard after all.
