Have a look at http://www.supercircuits.com for cameras. They have
some decent stuff that my buddy and I have bought. I just have my
stuff going to a monitor with a quad and vcr, although the new
dvr's look nice. At work my boss has some type of interface cards
going to his setup, 16 cameras.. but the software is windows only.
