Issue

If there is an integration currently written for DVR5100, will it work without any modification with DX4700/DX4800?

Product Line

Pelco Video Management

Environment

DX4700/DX4800 Series hybrid video recorder (HVRs)

Cause

Use the DVR5100 API on the DX4700/DX4800 series.

Resolution

It is likely that some partners will require additional effort to ensure compatibility. Even though the new models will use the same API, some partners may have to change their code to accommodate minor changes like a new model number being returned when queried. This is all dependent on how well the code was written – some will require some changes, some will not require any modifications. If the integration was written using X-Portal it will not work at all.
