Intelligent Video Surveillance from Smart DVR's

Digital Video Recorder

As technology continues to improve all around us, in nearly all aspects of life, it makes sense that Digital Video Recorders (DVR's) are also following the same trend and becoming more "intelligent". As with most products in the world, especially when dealing with technology, there are many different expectations that people hold when it comes to the intelligence of a DVR.

Some people have very basic needs when it comes to a security camera system and are impressed when a DVR can record video to a hard drive, and then be played back from the web on any computer. Others, however, become lost in the world of CSI and create unrealistic expectations of the DVR. These people come to believe that any digital image can be magnified indefinitely, without loss of quality, and that faces can instantly be matched up to a criminal database.

Realistic expectations from an intelligent DVR come standard on a GeoVision Security system. These features include: recording when detecting motion, internet connectivity which includes remote viewing and playback through a web browser, central monitoring software to allow several DVR's to be monitored locally or remotely, and face detection, detecting missing or unattended objects, and many more.

With GeoVision DVR's all systems have the same quality of software and a high level of intelligence. GeoVision models only differ in hardware configuration which can affect the frame rate of capture, number of cameras each system supports, and the size of video storage. Many users are opting to go with the GeoVision systems due to their high level of intelligence and reduced cost when compared to less intelligent name brand DVR's.

Surveillance at the Democratic National Convention

CCTV Security for the Democratic National ConventionWhen the Democratic National Convention comes to Denver in August, there will be new security camera systems installed to deter crime. On the 14th of July, Denver City Council approved an agreement with Avrio Group for the installation and maintaining of a security system. The agreement was worth over $940,000.

The new system will be an addition to the existing HALO (High Activity Location Observation) system that is currently in place. Some technology being considered is video feed from the cameras being fed to police cruisers. Many of Denver residents are questioning the effectiveness of having so much security, some even worry about privacy. City Officials assure them that the security will help with security and safety and that technology on the cameras keep them from looking in windows, homes, and stores. Federal funds will be used to repay the city eventually for the additions.
