i am currently writing an app for viewing various cameras and some dvr solutions via the blackberry and am interested in beta testers who already have a camera. if you are interested please pm me with the make/model camera/dvr you have and i will let you know if it's compatible. we can take it from there. thanks.

I have a blackberry and cameras but I'm not sure what type of cameras you are looking for? I imagine you need someone with IP cameras. The only IP cameras I have are from Hawking HomeRemote and I'm not sure if they work outside of the hawking gateway. I do have a DVR but it requires a java application to view the cameras.

The Panasonic HCM-331 and its siblings have out-of-the-box support for "mobile" devices including BBs. 320x240, still shots only, but more or less complete cam control.

What do you have in mind?

david: is it the old hawking camera or the new one? also what dvr do you have (make/model)?

lagerhead: panasonics tend to do more than what you are saying. i am doing live streaming on these cams with different resolutions along with ptz via trackball. in fact Panasonic and Axis are the best lines for live streaming, different resolutions, ptz, etc. also, i am not sure what more or less complete control cam control means. is this ptz you are talking about? do you have a panasonic cam and want to try it out? I am looking for testers on bb because there are so many different models, o/s, carriers that i have to rewrite certain parts of the code depending on the api available for your situation. pm me if you have a panasonic cam + bb and are interested. if you have another cam pm me that info too and i will let you know if it's compatible.

i am doing a native bb app, not a browser still picture although i do support that functionality also when supported by the camera. you can do live streaming, snapshot, save to local media, multiple cameras, different manufacturers/models, etc. i am interested in various cams/bb as well as feedback on UI/setup. on the iphone i can make this very smooth however on bb the UI is somewhat less attractive but no less functional.

i also noticed you are using a proliphix hvac unit. if you may be interested i would like to develop an app for that also. i am doing other hvac units now but would like to add that unit to the list.

thanks guys.

My Razor died today and I ended up replacing it with a Blackberry. Since I use Panasonic IP cameras I am suddenly interested.

no dvr's supported at this time. working with manufacturers to get some certified. will post when i have them up and running. only support for axis/panasonic video servers right now which you can use for analog cameras.

also, it was noted that there may be some confusion where it says to input 'ip or url'. url = domain name. no need for http://. just www.blah.com or blah.com or video.blah.com , etc.
