Convert Analog CCTV cameras to Digital.

We have many analog cameras with local DVRs in multiple buildings.

We are looking for an open source solution, to convert analog cameras to digital, have local storage and backup (in near real-time) to a remote location.

Looking for a how-to solution and equipment needed to accomplish this:


Buy product x to convert the cameras to digital,
use a Computer with software Y for the local storage - software Y will also send video to a remote location for backup.

No custom software/hardware.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Other methods to transfer (if supported on your DVR) are:
1. create DVDs or
2. transfer to a memory stick
