TV Output from Geovision DVR Server

Currently there are four methods available on having a TV output of your DVR monitoring.

1) If the PC DVR server is equipped with a combo card, there is a single video out (RCA) connection on the card. If your card is designed for 8 channels, all 8 channels will be displayed on the TV. If your card is designed for 16 channels, then all 16 channels will be displayed on the TV. Combo cards consist of the GV-1120, 1240 and 1480. If you wish to show only one channel or change the overall layout of the multiple cameras on display (i.e. channel 1 is large with 3-6 on the side is small) you will need to use the software called Spot Monitoring. Spot Monitoring is only available on the GV 8.01+ software, which means you need to latest GV combo card before you can use this feature.

2) If your using the GV-250, 600, 650, or 800 capture card, then you will need to buy a separate extension card in order to have the TV output feature. The card is called a GV-Loop Through card and can output four channels. Unlike the combo cards, the GV-Loop Through card will only output one channel at a via for each connection. For example, output #1 will only output camera #1, output #3 will only output camera #3. You do not have the option to use the Spot Monitoring software with this card.

3) For those that wish to have the spot monitoring feature, but only have a GV-250, 600, 650, or 800 capture card, there is a new extension card that is available. This card is call the GV-TV Out card, and will give you the display feature options just like that with the Spot Monitoring software. Since this card is fairly new, it will only work the the GV main system 8.01+ software.

4) If you wish to display one channel to multiple TVs, you will need to buy a module called DIS-104. This module will recieve one video signal and distribute it to four separate TVs.

Audio Equipment for Police Interview Rooms

More and more Law Enforcement Facilities are going with Louroe Microphone and Audio products for their Interview Rooms. Louroe has developed a product to work specifically with the new DVR CCTV Surveillance Systems. It is called an Audio Interface Adapter.

The Louroe Model IF-4 and IF-8 Audio Interface Adapters are designed for connecting up eight Louroe microphones to a DVR that has multiple audio inputs. The units contain dual outputs (per microphone) for accommodating either an RCA input or a 3.5mm (mini jack) input connection to a DVR or sound card. In addition, the IF-4 and IF-8 receive wiring from the Louroe microphones, provide phantom power and contain a variable gain adjust per output to prevent the overdriving of signal to a soundcard. All Louroe microphones are compatible with the IF-4 and IF-8.

The Verifact Model L-DT is a desktop microphone that is designed for conducting interviews or similar applications. It contains two electret condenser microphones facing opposite directions that are mounted in a sturdy non-slip ABS plastic housing for adherence to a desktop or flat surface.

More info on Louroe Products

What is framerate?

Framerate is how many frames per second (fps) a card can do. Obviously the better the framerate, the smoother the picture will be. Geovision cards have 2 framerates. One is for real-time viewing (Display rate) and the other is for watching playback (Recording Rate). Check out the post for more information.

Cities requiring Business Security Cameras:


Mayor Daley of Chicago is proposing an ordinance that will require businesses to install Digital Video Surveillance Systems if they are open until 4 am or if they are open more than 12 hours a day. Milwaukee is considering requiring cameras at stores that have called police three or more times in a year. Baltimore County, Maryland ordered large malls to put cameras in parking areas after a murder in one garage last year.

Some business owners complain that it is unfair burden on small business, but they are not getting the full picture. DVR Camera Security Systems will save a small business owner in the long run.

• The physical presence of a camera is a deterrence to crime in the first place.
• The Digital Video Recorded Image is a valuable tool to the Police in identifying and apprehending the offenders.
• Employees feel safer when they know the business is monitored.
• Business owners can relax easier when they know their business is monitored 24/7 and they can check on the status of their business remotely over the internet.

Michael Babitch, Dairy Queen Owner in California, praised the system he bought from Camera Security Now, “The money I have saved in employee theft and product shrinkage has more than paid for the system I installed last year”

Whether you are required by government to install Camera Surveillance systems, or you want to reap the benefits Security Cameras, Camera Security Now has the solution to Small Business Surveillance needs.

Cheap Security Cameras are Expensive to Own

How saving money on inexpensive cameras can cost you even more.

A very wise man once said “to everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven” and the same can be said of today’s CCTV Camera Security products.

The other day I came across an unfortunate individual who may have been familiar with the above phrase but still lacked guidance from a qualified consultant to understand the “purpose” of the inexpensive CCTV cameras he had purchased and installed.

Once installed it became obvious to the individual that those inexpensive cameras were, in a manner of speaking, just not going to get the job done. Specifically they could not handle the massive amount of light that streamed in from the two large plate glass walls of his corner storefront. In that environment at certain key hours of they day the cameras were completely worthless.

The individual realizing his error was now consulting with my partner and on his way to purchasing a camera with a new Wide Dynamic Technology designed specifically to handle his lighting environment.

Missing that one chance to consult with a qualified CCTV specialist can be costly. As the time and money wasted on an uneducated purchase can not be recovered. Inexpensive cameras of course can have their purpose and place in today’s CCTV Camera Security systems. But failure to understand that purpose and place can be costly.

Steve Irwin's death caught on Video

Video of 'Crocodile Hunter' Steve Irwin's last moments shows him pulling from his chest the poisonous stingray barb that killed him.



Irwin's manager John Stainton described the footage as a "terrible" experience, watching a friend die.

The camera video shows Steve swimming over the top of the ray, then the tail came up, and quickly spiked him in the chest. He then pulled the barb out out and the next minute he was dead.

Wide Angle Security Cameras for large surveillance areas

Once you can get a good shot of a persons face with a close up security camera, you should use a wider angle camera lens for the interior surveillance spaces of the building. Seeing a larger area means that you can see what someone is doing, but may not be able to identify a face. Solution, use a color camera for inside building surveillance. Using color cameras inside your building is a good idea because you can readily identify a person by the clothes they are wearing. Used in conjunction with the face shot at the entry point, you have an excellent record of all people and activities in your surveillance areas. More information: http://www.CameraSecurityNow.com

About CCTV Security Cameras

Closed circuit television also known as CCTV is the industry standard in surveillance security cameras. CCTV can be a single network of cameras or multiple networks of camera linked together via switches, internet, DVR or wide area computer technology. CCTV Video data is analog. The analog signal can be converted to digital via CCTV Digital Video Recorders. Once the video data is digital it can be managed just like any other computer data and can be stored automatically on computers and network storage devices.
 

Security Camera Tips: Apply Logic when picking cameras and lenses

Consider the following when choosing a CCTV surveillance camera:

1.
Sketch out a Floor Plan:
Put in all camera locations.
Consider the distance to your surveillance zone:Are you 5 feet or 15 feet away from your surveillance target area? It is best to locate your camera as close to the surveillance area first, then choose how much zoom you need. Do you need 4mm, 8mm or 12mm lens?

2. Field of view or area of surveillance: Take photos of areas you want to cover from the proposed camera locations.
What lens you need depends what you want to see and how far away and how wide a viewing area. Wide angle and fisheye lenses are available.
3. Resolution:
Do you want to capture a persons face or a car license plate? Each camera location will determine which lenses would maximize your surveillance potential. Do you need
50mm lens or standard 8mm?

4 .Vandalism potential: Will your camera be subject to damage? Damage resistant cameras are available.

5.
Lighting: Is the space well lit or dimly lit. Are the lights turned off at night? Do you want to monitor the area with the lights turned off? Do you need infrared or low light cameras?

6. Budget:
Just like any technology, the more you spend, the better the system you get. Keep in mind a low cost camera is better than no camera.

No light, Low Light Bullet Security Cameras

There are low light, no light and varifocal lens bullet cams.
2 inch Bullet Security Camera
Low light Bullet Security Cameras can see in very low light conditions but require some ambient light.
No light Bullet Security Cameras have LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes)  that illuminate areas in total darkness.
Varifocal Bullet Security Cameras offer maximum flexibility in camera installations requiring a wide range of focal lengths.

Why are they called Bullet Cams?


Bullet cams are typically smaller cameras that are just over 2 inches long and resemble a bullet shell casing. Bullet cams utilize CCTV technology. Bullet security cameras can be used in both indoor and outdoor applications.

CCTV Experiences

Woody, JVC and myself have been working with Austin from ABB1 Shredding on their camera server. They were only getting 8 days of recording on 500GB hard drive space.

I talked them through lowering their settings, Brian did the same and so did JVC. It came down to them having several outdoor cameras viewing aluminum cans, the glare from the sun and night lights kept the images recording 24/7 even though it was set to record on motion only. They were using up 80GBs a day in storage.

Austin called this morning to thank us for taking the time to work with him and also wanted to pass along the solution that he stumbled upon. He had asked me and JVC if the brightness, contrast and color setting had anything to do with the saved file size.

We both told him no. Good thing he did not listen to us. What he did to solve the problem was lower the brightness and contrast, eliminating the sun flashes and now the outside images are a little darker, but they only record when something really moves. So the saying is true, you learn something new everyday. Bill

CCTV Technology Continues to Evolve


By John Beagle, Camera Security Now

Each camera had its own monitor. One camera, one monitor. CCTV systems were introduced in the US and the UK during the 60s and 70s. CCTV systems are over a thousand times more advanced than the basic camera and monitor configurations that first appeared in the 1960s. Systems from the 60s were basic, consisting of very low resolution black and white cameras connected by coaxial cable. Each camera was connected to a black and white monitor. A 16 camera configuration required 16 monitors.
