    I hope this is the right forum - so many to choose from!

    I am upgrading my CCTV system and adding a new DVR with BNC/RG 59 connections for the cameras. I also have a couple of IP cameras that I would like to incorporate into the DVR. Does anyone know if this is possible? Is there a form of bridge converter I could use?

    Thanks

    It is possible using an Ethernet Bridge. These are gaining more popularity with older systems getting new cameras added, but still keeping a basic DVR monitor.

    This is one such device. EL1500C

    Thanks for this. Very helpful. Thinking it through some more, I guess I need something that will convert the IP at the DVR end. Thinking it further, I suppose I could use a simple router near the DVR just for the IP cameras. But I would still need to be able to extract the channels to the DVR RG59 connectors.
