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.

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”

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.

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.
Try this test with your camera
and various lenses.
This is an 12mm Shot with a C-Mount Professional CCTV Surveillance Camera
The same camera switches from color
to black and white with the overhead lights off. The camera automatically adjusts to lower light levels, as low as .001 Lux!

Get a good face shot!
Use Higher quality cameras at entry areas Doors, gates and other entry areas need a good quality, high resolution camera to record a good 'face shot.' The video from this camera should be considered a highly valuable since it can be used as evidence in identifying a person in a court of law.
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 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.
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.
The Bullet Security Camera is an ideal camera for many security applications. They got their name because they are shaped like a bullet cartridge.

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

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.
