From the hardware-oriented Linux site LinuxElectrons: Digital Video Recorder Vendor Neugent Goes for Linux:
Last October, Neugent launched the Hawkeye LX DVR Series “” a set of 16-channel and 8-channel PC-based digital video recorders running on the Linux platform, targeted for the enterprise market. Hawkeye LX DVRs feature MPEG-4 video compression at 30fps/channel (recording resolution up to 704×480 NTSC), G.723 audio compression, sensor & relay integration, digital watermark, motion detection and PTZ (pan/tilt/zoom) functions to name a few.
What the release doesn’t say is that this company’s development center is in the Philippines. Neugent Technologies in Salcedo Village. Even if security appliances have a small market in the Philippines – since we can easily employ security guards and other personnel – building these for foreign markets is a big opportunity. Digital Video Recorders are more than just for entertainment.
