The Vivotek VS8100-V2 is a mini network video server that
converts one analog CCTV video signal to a digital IP video signal. IP video servers are typically used when you need to use a CCTV camera with a network video recorder or when you want to enable remote access over IP without using a network-enabled analog DVR.
Important Update! CCTV Camera Pros no longer supplies Vivotek products. CCTV Camera Pros highly recommends Viewtron IP cameras and NVRs. This is our best selling BNC and IP product line by far.
