Guest Series Part 1: Is It Time To Move From Analog To Network Video?Source: Aimetis

Perhaps your DVR manufacturer has discontinued production of the DVR model you are using, or you've written off the asset and are open to upgrading your video surveillance system. Should you purchase another analog-based DVR, or is it time to upgrade to a network video system?
No system, whether analog or digital, has 100% availability. But most networks deliver more than 99.99% uptime, which means less than one hour per year of downtime. Beyond that, you can buy network cameras with memory card slots. So even if a net work fails temporarily, you can maintain backup video on these cards for 100% reliability.
