  1. The clearview stuff is good and is what is needed. The problem is price. As soon as you start looking at PACE equipment the price jumps quickly. A similar David Horn recorder costs over 3k. That being said. It's very user friendly and good kit.
  2. It's only to record ten minute interviews. Not a normal surveillance system Lol. Yes saves disc space.
  3. Can anyone recommend a really easy to use recorder that doesn't cost silly money (less than 1k) I need it to record video from two cameras and audio from a microphone straight onto dvd. The tricky part is it needs to really easy for users to operate. One touch record ideally. I'm using an off the shelf dvd / hdd recorder, which works fine but is prone to user errors, such as not selecting record to disk etc. Thanks in advance.
  4. No Neutech. Midlands area. I have sorted the problem. So stupid, can't believe I hadn't realised. The camera comes with a shroud fitted which is used when the camera is hanging upside down from a swan neck. My application was mounted on top of a pole and came supplied with a small visor. The visor was fouling on the shroud on start up as the camera goes through its full range of movement. This then locked the camera up including the camera menus. Unbelievable. Thanks all for the help.
  5. Ah yes.understood. Thanks Timmo66. I'm going to set the dvr to dennard-c and the camera to a 485 protocol and refit the RX100 unit. The RX100 allows up to 250m on rg59. Hopefully this will resolve my problem. That's what I did for my bench set up Timmo and what I have been doing on site. Think the cable length may be the issue. Fingers crossed.
  6. James, what does "ptop" stand for? I've not used that term before. Not sure on cable run length. If it's a straight line to the pole then it will be just under 100m. I'm thinking perhaps the BBV converter the old cams used did a better job of supplying a usable signal than the new cam. Breff. The old cams have a separate UTC to 485 converter. They work fine. The new problem child is all built in.
  7. Hi James. Thanks for the reply. The dvr is sending out telemetry to the old cameras via coax using dennard-c or BBV protocol. This is then converted to 485 with a BBV decoder on each of the old cam posts. The new cam has no decoder its all built in to the cam unit. The new cam worked fine on the bench using BBV protocols. The differences between my bench test and on site are: 10 additional cameras using different protocols. The length of cable between the dvr and cam post. And a noise reduction filter in the line.
  8. Hi I'm currently trying to replace an old ptz camera with a new redvision ptz and can not get the telemetry to work. The old cams are set to dennard-c and and use coax into a BBV converter mounted on the each pole which are controlled by a dedi micro ds2. When bench testing the set up worked fine and I had full control over the camera, on site however it won't play ball. Am I right in believing that the latest cams using BBV up the coax don't need an address set on the dip switches and that the ds2 will run multiple protocols to cover different cams? Any guidance appreciated.
