You would need to look at a few things IMHO:  

1) The camera recording speed vs available bandwidth.     I'm not familiar with those models, but are the cameras recording at HD quality?     What is the current load on the circuit to those sites.   If your circuit is saturated with data and you have no QOS for the camera traffic, then you may be running into a bandwidth issue (can't fit a 2 inch marble through a 1 inch opening).

2) Amount of bandwidth at HQ.    12 cameras at high quality may be using more bandwidth than you suspect.   You may be saturating the HQ circuit.    You need to ID the recording speed of the cameras multiplied by 12.  Then figure int he available bandwidth after allowing for normal usage.

2) Quality of the line.     You may want the ISP to run a quality check on the line to look for errors.      Do you run your own checks (i.e. nagios) to the remote sites?   DO you have any data about uptime and/or availability?
