If you decide to migrate your video surveillance to an IP-based solution, you can still keep your investment in legacy analog cameras as you reap the benefits of a network surveillance system. IPVideo now bundles the Legacy Bridge with all its Sentry VMS to provide a digital bridge for easily integrating your analog cameras into the network-based video management system. Legacy Bridge is included at no additional charge with any Sentry VMS model that you purchase – from 16 channel systems to ones handling hundreds of cameras.
How the Legacy Bridge works
Simply connect your analog cameras to the Legacy Bridge which will automatically communicate their existence to the Sentry VMS. Because the two systems are sold as a unit, IPVideo has already preprogrammed the VMS to recognize any devices attached to the Legacy Bridge, which speeds up the process of integrating your legacy analog cameras into a new IP-based surveillance environment.
