    Need recommendations for CCTV SDK

    I am planning to write a Windows application that will interface with my CCTV system. I'm looking for recommendations on video cards and SDK kits for this project.

    Hauppage does have a video card and a SDK for this type of project BUT the SDK is $199.00. It's way to much to pay for a SDK that's really dated. Also, I'd like to keep my costs down.

    So, does anybody have any suggestions?

    Thanx

    Bob

    Uh, why do you need a "CCTV SDK"? The Video Capture part of the Platform SDK should be fine for your needs, it'll be your program that does anything specific.

    Admittedly, using the Video Capture functions can be a biatch at times, but that's what programming's all about.

    I've never done Windows multimedia programming before. So, I wasn't truly aware of the Platform SDK capabilities. This project is essentially a one time project to integrate security cameras with an automation application.

    Thanx
