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.

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.
