    Hi
    Wowza sets no limits for 24/7 recording but the new live record module allows you to carry on recording but splits the file into sections without you loosing data.
    This is safer in the face that if the file becomes corrupted but will only loose one section rather than the entire file.

    You will of course be limited by your available disk space.

    The live record module can be found here,

    It is not necessary. You just need the Wowza 3.5 LiveStreamRecord

    I have been installing analog video cameras for some time ...The last installation I did, took place on the building I live in...I installed 6 analog video cameras for my landlord...Now he wants me to start looking for some good ip video cameras to replace the analog ones...I do not know much about ip video cameras...I wonder if I should use the same cabling(coax cable)...I wonder if someone knows about a good ip video camera system....Any suggestions ???

    Axis, Panasonic, Sony, all make good IP cameras. We have the most experience with Axis cameras. There are also 100s of other makes and models, too many to track. There is a list of ones that support rtsp out here:

    To work with Wowza they need to be h.264 video and ACC or MP3 audio.

    Here is the guide to re-streaming from IP cameras:

    Hi...Yes, I have tried some ip video camera systems called ethernet over coax systems, They do make the job quite easy. Usually I like to install new cabling if it's all possible because then I actually know what I'm working with. Sometimes the cabling is already in place with the coax in the run and the run maybe longer than network standards. The brand that I have chosen to use was nitek. I had used products in the past for analog video transmissions. They make a system called etherstretch. They offer both stand-alone units and the ones I used with a gigabit switch built-in. The switch provide pelee power to the cameras in addition to receiving the ethernet over coax. Here is a link to the unit I used

    I'm not sure how many cameras you needed to do in this job. Most of the runs I was doing were over 500 feet. I did not need to install any type of repeater to make it reach. That was also an advantage. Let me know what you think and how the job goes...
