I saw a link to this, and was wondering if anyone had any direct experience with it? How do you access the feed, and can you modify the programming on the board?

edit: Forgot to include some information, sorry, was in a hurry.

I think it looks like a good idea due to the (apparent) ability to modify the video stream before it gets to the system, but I don't know anyone with first hand experience, so help would be great!

Thanks,

Andy

I've got one that I've played around with. The video feed is pretty solid and it's rather easily programmed if you know how to do it, but the pricepoint is pretty high. I wouldn't put it above performance from the wifi cameras we've been using, and it's about 3-4x as much in price.
