4-channel-1080p-hd-cvi-DVR

When you hear the word DVR you automatically think of Digital Video Recorder. Well, what kind of DVR? Cable companies like Xfinity use DVR technology intergraded with cable hardware so you can view hundreds of channels and record up to 4 broadcasts at the same time (of course monthly DVR service fee applies).exfinity The security camera industry uses DVRs to record video and audio data to internal hard drives. It is safe to say that there are IP security cameras that can blow away the traditional analog security camera system, but it really takes a lot of configuration, networking equipment and sometimes big money. Now you have the new HD-CVI systems like the 4 channel 1080p HD-CVI Mini DVR. In this article I will go over the on-board accessories and what you can do with them using the proper configurations with both hardware and software. First I will talk about the inputs:

hd-cvi-2mp-1080p-indoor-outdoor-ir-bullet-camerahd-59881big The 4 channel 1080p HD-CVI Mini DVR has 4 HDCVI video inputs which accept 2 megapixel resolution HDCVI cameras like the CVIOB-EL2MPIR50 that is one of my favorites. These HDCVI cameras are motion detection 100% compatible giving you a great way to not only save hard drive space, but add more days to your recordings. This unit can do wonders when configured correctly; you are able to configure detailed settings in the OSD and at the HDCVI DVR.

Also, the max run on the video feed is a block busting 1600 FEET.

Motion Detect Example: You can install a 2MP HD-CVI Bullet Camera (CVIOB-EL2MPIR50) at a door entrance that requires a person on the other end needing access through that door. You can not only get that camera feed from the door when the motion is triggered, you can also give the authorized person access from anywhere on site or off site. The configuration is simple all you have to do is have the proper alarm inputs and outputs configured properly both hardware and software.

This unit also can hold (2) 7200 RPM 4TB internal hard drives for ultimate recording.

This 4 channel 1080p HD-CVI Mini DVR also provides 4 audio inputs for real time listening and recording. This feature is perfect if you want to set up 2-way audio communications in a warehouse or at a big company property or just wanting to listen and record audio for future evidence. The connection is simple first you will need powered microphones for the audio inputs and an amplified speaker for the audio output for the listening part, remember all audio can be configured for recording.

The RS-232 is the on board serial port (serial communication transmission of data) for old school configurations. Ordinary COM (Debug), keyboard connection and transparent serial port (COM input and output via network )image4

USB inputs are used by the control mouse to maneuver through the DVR’s menus.

The RS485 port is not needed to use to control our HD-CVI pan tilt zoom cameras like the 720P HD-CVI PTZ with 250 Ft IR. This camera is priceless having the ability to record 1.3 megapixel images while having the ability to zoom in on a perpetrator for real time action. A great benefit of the HD-CVI DVR is that there is no need to run extra wires when wanting to add a CVI PTZ because the transmission is all done through the coax RJ59 cable.hd-cvi-ptz-20x-1_3mp-720p-with-250-59599big

The RJ45 is a 10M/100M/1000M self-adaptable Ethernet port. This connection is what the HDCVI DVR uses to establish the link to the inside and outside world using a router. Without this technology we would not be able to communicate using our PC, MAC or mobile device whether it is an HD-CVI, analog or IP security system.

Alarm inputs is my main focus in this article. Using this feature in the HD-CVI Mini DVR combined with the alarm outputs can create a complete secured location. The alarm relay is 30VDC 2A,125VAC 1A (activation alarm).

Example: You can configure this unit’s alarm capabilities to alert you when sitting at an office environment so when a person walks through a first door or detected by a beam detector it can trigger a sound using a buzzer. This will direct your view to a monitor configured to bring up a camera in that area so you can then use the DVR’s interface or web service to let them in, or you can even use your compatible mobile device to see who is at the front door and give them access.

maglock diagramimage2IMG_6225

This set up would involve an analog door sensor or beam detector, a single 12V relay, a maglock or a normally closed door strike, 12V power supply, high grade alarm wire and a 4 channel 1080p HD-CVI Mini DVR. The configuration is simple: First you wire and configure the power supply to the relay and then you wire and configure the DVR alarm inputs and outputs to the (output) MAGLOCK and the (input) to the sensor. The next step is to set up in the GUI ( Graphic User Interface ) at the HDCVI DVR.

First, if using the unit’s interface you can click on the setup tab and then click on the event tab and go to the alarm page. There you will configure the alarms inputs and outputs. You start out by enabling the channels and setting the type, antidither, record channel, delay, alarm out, latch and tour remember to hit save after the configuration.

alarm1

Outputs:

USB outputs that uses thumb drives for backing up settings and events.

Alarm outputs, like I mentioned previously in this article, give you ultimate access controls right at your finger tips. Imagine if you had control over door security when a burglary or an in-house crisis arises. You can really try to control the situation if you can restrict access to doors leading to potential victim’s right from your PC or a mobile device.

event

Video BNC output can be configured using the spot out matrix control. You can display desired video windows and tours with out seeing the configuration menus. The HDMI and VGA outputs will display the HDCVI’s full menu functions but you can still configure these monitors to display a tour.

The audio output is used to configure a speaker for listening purposes.

In conclusion the 4 channel 1080p HD-CVI Mini DVR can be used for many many configurations. It is a cost effective unit and at the same time performing at optimal peaks using the inputs and outputs of this new technology would put you ahead of the game.

Invention of the Security Camera and Recording System

Written By:

IMG_5991

Everyone dreams about some kind of invention that they know will make a difference in the world. Back in 1933 a chicken keeper accomplished that. At first his invention was not taken serious but now we see him as the first amateur photographer that invented the security camera. His name was Mr. Norbury, from London England, and he had set up a security camera system using a small box camera wired through iron pipes and booby-trapped a door where he kept his chickens. When someone tried stealing his eggs he would trip a lever balanced by sand bags to pull the trigger, taking a snap shot picture of the thief. Mr. Norbury was successful in catching his plumber and using the picture as evidence. When the judge asked Mr. Norbury who took the picture, he said, “well your honor, the thief did.”

Security cameras have come a VERY long way since then and now we use them in our everyday lives from the government to the regular mother and father wanting to keep an eye on their house keeper or nanny. You can find cameras practically on every corner from traffic lights to schools and I personal love the aspect that my children can have some piece of mind when attending school. The operation, design, shape and color vary for these image capturing boxes. You can install dome, bullet, vandal proof and pan-tilt-zoom camera that have great features like auto tracking.

One of my favorite new security cameras is the Panoramic security camera it gives you a full human perspective when viewing the live video stream, the experience is like actually being there in person. This new type of technology uses multiple cameras, usually 4 high-resolution cameras side by side in one housing apparatus using all the cameras video inputs and converting them into one panoramic stream. Then the camera encodes and delivers to any viewing device providing a 200 degree view. This is great when wanting to capture a large area using only 1 camera install installation. These cameras have the capability to be viewed from anywhere in the world and on most mobile devices using the manufacture’s app.

Another one of my new favorites is the IPPTZ auto tracker. This security camera can pan left, right, up, down, zoom and focus at the control of the user. The feature that I love is the auto tracker, as it has the ability to track and follow a target when detected. When connected to the web service utility you can configure settings like zones, tripwire and alarms so when an object crosses the configured zone, alarms can go off and it will auto track that object until it’s out of view. Officials all around the world use this technology along with face recognition to track and capture known fugitives.

What about the recorder?

vcr

VHS (Video Home System) format for the VCR (Video Cassette Recorder) that a Japanese company invented in the 1970’s. JVC was in financial ruin but Takano and Shiraishi continued to work on the project in secrecy within the video division. By 1973, the two engineers successfully produced a functional prototype

vfs

In the past there was no way to record live CCTV footage, but then came the VCR  allowing multiple events to be recorded to an analog VHS tape. Time and space was very limited to these recording devices.

IMG_5994

Now we have DVRs and NVRs (Digital Video and Network Video Recorders) capturing and writing video data to hard drives, increasing the time and space you can save. Now companies are inventing new integrated units like the hybrid and tribrid combining analog, IP, and CVI Technology.

Imagine, when you’re building your own custom computer or gaming system you start with the case, well it would be awesome if there was a company that sold custom-built DVR/NVR cases, motherboards, memory, hard drives, power supplies, BIG fans and all the cool accessories that can be added to give style and personality to these units. One of my pet peeves when building a custom computer is to always have proper cooling and ventilation, fast hard drives, powerful power supplies, video card, cables and so on… You never know what the future holds!!!

IMG_5989

IMG_5990

Cabling, cables and connectors have also come a long way. Transmission of data/signals over cable started with AT&T using copper wire strung along telephone poles. Telephone signals traveled down these lines as analog electrical waves to form voices and each call required 2 wires to form a complete circuit.

linesman phone

Broadband began when the demand for more television broadcast signals skyrocketed and now the coaxial is born being the first broadband medium. AT&T installed its first coaxial cable between New York and Philadelphia on 1936. One of the first security camera systems used coaxial for the transmission of video data to a monitor. Here at Security Camera King we have RG59 Siamese cable with high-grade copper shielding for high-speed transmission. Attached to the cable is a pair of power wires making installs a breeze with maximum video signal run length is about 750 feet. Microwave radio relay is coaxial and microwave radio relay working in tandem. It is a broadband system by which telephone and television travel via radio along a series of towers.

old tvimagesCAX8JSHT

Fiber optics systems, The New Cable on the block is a technology that uses rapid pulses of light traveling on fibers made of ultra pure glass. This digital medium is one of the best and fastest way of transmission by far, able to send data over miles of cabling with ultimately no interference.

-i386_photobucket_com-albums-oo303-llisallindsay-ANIMATIONS-gif08llisallindsayimagesCA2Z1EUYimagesCA4IFYOK

Cat5/6 cabling has been around for a bit, connecting networks and computers together for businesses and residences. Now security camera systems can be configured using IP camera technology.

rg59

This type of configuration is ideal when wanting to have high-resolution megapixel quality to really catch the identity of a perpetrator. Category 5 and 6 cable max run is around 300 feet. When the network configuration is configured correctly these systems perform flawlessly. The ability to log into each camera’s interface and make detailed adjustments is priceless.

POE is another new feature I love about the Ethernet hookup. The Installer’s Dream, Power over Ethernet- one cable carrying both data and power to the IP cameras, no need to power the camera locally.

poe

While on the subject of new technology try checking out HD-CVI, this configuration uses RG59 coaxial cables to transmit HD quality high-resolution feed to the HD-CVI DVR, recording awesome events to your hard drive for better recognition. The great thing about HD-CVI is that the max run length of the Video cable is 1600 feet, WOW!

Tribrid DVR - HDCVI IP and CCTV in one unit

This is the supreme standalone upgrade solution. If you’re looking to keep up with new SecurityCameraKing.com technology then this Tribrid DVR is your answer. If you have installed previous analog systems and you have great cameras and beautiful cables and power supplies in place and you have upgraded all of your hard drives, replaced network routers and switches but you still have your old school analog DVR that is ready to retire. Well guess what? You can keep your good analog cameras, power supplies, hard drives and network hardware. All you need is the new Tribrid DVR using analog, HDCVI, and IP camera technology. You can now show off your new Tribrid to your friends, family and business associates by incorporating new HDCVI technology and IP megapixel cameras. If you’re looking to add more cameras or just want to replace exciting cameras with higher resolution units then the Tribrid will do the job. Setting up the unit is a breeze, I will illustrate some simple setups, new functions and configuration for the new TRIDVR-EL16.

Connecting HDCVI, Analog and IP cameras to the Tribrid

Connecting cameras to the TRIDVR-EL16 can get tricky but SecurityCameraKing.com has 5 star tech support that will help you the whole way (for free), but if you’re one of those do it yourselfers, then here are some simple to follow set up instructions. First, logging in to the system is the same as all of our DVR, NVR, and Hybrid systems. The default user name is admin and the password is admin. After logging in you will encounter the wizard you can just exit out of. From the main menu go to Camera.

Tribrid DVR Menu1

In the image page you will see the channel selection (Drop down box). You can configure each COMPATIBLE cameras saturation, brightness, contrast and sharpness, just remember to save after every modification.

Next is the Encode page were you configure your Compression, Resolution, Frame Rate, Bit Rate, Audio and sub stream per COMPATIBLE camera.

Tribrid DVR Menu2

Next in line is the Cam Name. Here is where you name your camera channels. It is a brilliant idea adding a name to a channel/camera, you automatically know who, when and where the even occurred. Example front door, back door, bedroom or backyard on February 3 2014 at 7:30pm.

Tribrid DVR Menu 3

Now the very important part, the Channel Type page. Here is where it can get a little tricky. The Tribrid’s BNC inputs are defaulted using HDCVI cameras. The adjustment is simple just switch the channel you have the analog camera connected and enable the analog field.

Tribrid DVR Menu4

Tribrid DVR Menu5

When connecting and configuring an IP camera you have to start from the last channel of the Tribrid. For example if you have a 16 channel Tribrid DVR then you would start adding cameras from channel 16 and down, so the first IP camera you connect and configure will be channel 16. You would copy the same configuration as the HDCVI described previously and still be in the channel type page and then towards the bottom of the page there is an arrow selecting next page. Go to page 2 and select IP on channel 16 for your first IP camera, 15 would be the 2nd IP camera and so on. Remember if you have any question or concerns you can always contact TechPro Security Support Monday through Friday from 9am to 6pm Eastern Sunny Florida time.

CCTV and its Role in Education

Written By:
Tuesday, June 10th, 2014

The school bell rings and children rush outside eagerly, pushing to get through to the long-awaited freedom that each end of the day guarantees. Scattered papers and pencils are now the only things that clutter the hallways at each day’s end. Teachers and school staff hastily complete their lesson plans for the next day, also wanting to get home to their own families and lives. Meanwhile, burglars nearby examine the school for any way to gain entrance undetected. Grant-funded computers and technology are at risk of being stolen, as teachers and staff are unable to incessantly guard the buildings of education around the clock.

The Department of Education published statistics stating that in the 2005-2006 school year, 86 percent of schools nationwide had reported at least one theft, crime, or violent incident, which resulted in a total of 2.2 million crimes. It is impossible to personally monitor every inch of school grounds every single day, so how are school campuses and educational facilities meant to keep their students and staff safe and harbor a sense of security? This is where closed-circuit television, or CCTV, can put up the next line of defense, scanning the perimeters and potentially acting as a deterrent to any future types of criminal activity.

CCTV School

CCTV can serve multiple purposes when utilized by the educational sector. First and foremost, CCTV can provide security services for educational buildings, guarding the technology and premises from outsiders who have intentions to harm the children, steal costly technology or vandalize school property. CCTV can also protect from threats inside the school, such as proving or disproving accusations of sexual abuse, bullying from other children, or theft from teachers or staff. More recently, CCTV has been put to work as a direct educational tool, being used as a vessel to funnel distance learning to remote areas or to non-traditional learners.

Ronald D. Stephens is the Executive Director of the National School Safety Center, and has had extensive experience as a former teacher and an assistant superintendent. He supports use of security cameras in the schools if they are used to fix a current problem. He found that when security cameras were installed in a Midwestern school district, vandalism decreased by 95 percent! The National Center for Education Statistics estimates that 84 percent of high schools, 73 percent of middle schools, and 51 percent of primary schools use security.

Security cameras have also been used to stop or prevent bullying in schools as well. Bullying has been shown to be very detrimental to a child’s health and social well being, so it is crucial to identify and address the perpetrators before victims retaliate or bullies go too far. Installing security cameras would allow for constant monitoring of areas where bullying is suspected to be occurring, and could also possibly discourage any future bullying behaviors. One school in the United States found that once security cameras were installed, the bullying and harassment stopped. Although bullying may still take place outside of school and away from the camera’s monitor, security cameras can potentially eliminate bullying on school campuses, which is a slow, but sure step in the right direction.

TechPro Security Products offers PTZ (Pan Tilt Zoom) cameras that can protect premises by keeping a vigilante watch on all school property. The pan tilt zoom describes the camera’s ability to move. TechPro has three different kinds of PTZ cameras that include analog, network IP, and HD CVI.

Analog PTZ cameras are cameras that send feed through cable back to a digital video recorder (DVR), and tend to be less expensive.

Analog Security System

Analog_security_system_layout

Network IP cameras send their feed as a digital stream over an IP network, and can be remotely accessed from different locations. IP cameras provide greater resolution than analog cameras, but can be more expensive than the traditional analog cameras.

Network IP Security Camera System

Netowrk-IP-Security-camera-System-Layout

HD-CVI, or high definition composite video interface cameras can transmit high definition video quality. HD-CVI cameras are beneficial as they provide megapixel recording that could allow for a positive identification if crimes are ever recorded on school property.

HD-CVI Security Camera System

HD-CVI-Security-Camera-System-Layout

There are also various mounting options one can use with PTZ cameras, such as in ceiling mounts, arm mounts, or pendant mounts. In ceiling mounts are more discrete, while arm mounts are more visible to deter criminal or suspicious activity.

CCTV can also be used as an educational tool to stream learning sessions to remote areas from universities or other educational facilities. There are many people who are unable to attend a traditional classroom setting for a variety of reasons, and this is where CCTV can be used to act as an in-home or off location education setting. Distance education is continuously growing, and is now the most cost effective education that can be offered to a majority of people. CCTV has many advantages in terms of using it for distance education, such as its quality, control of content, and immediate replay options.

Distance-Learning

As the world becomes ever more intertwined in technology, CCTV will continue to serve roles in educational facilities by providing security measures against criminal activity and theft, bullying, and vandalism. CCTV in distance learning will continue to grow even more, as more and more countries become developed and are able to access Internet connections more easily. As technology advances, CCTV will perhaps be utilized in even more aspects in order to provide cutting-edge education and assist educators in the learning process of students all around the world.

Things to know about HD-CVI, HD-SDI & IP security cameras and recorders

Terms, abbreviations and definitions
1. High Definition Composite Video Interface or HD-CVI- Is a new video technology that supports 1080p and 720p resolution. Because it is a low frequency video signal, standard RG59 coax up to 1,600 feet can be used.

2. High Definition Serial Digital Interface or HD-SDI- Was originally used for TV production and was adopted by the CCTV industry to deliver high resolution video 1080p or 720p. Due to the HD-SDI high frequencies sometimes up to 2.2 GHZ the use of RG59 is limited.

3. RG59 coax- is used for low voltage video signals such as security cameras, short video cables for cable boxes and satellite receivers.

4. RG6 coax- is used for digital signals that required 50 MHZ or higher. Used primarily for HD video and audio signals.

5. POE or Power over Ethernet – allows you to have a network connection and receive power from a single Ethernet cable. So on a POE camera setup you only need a single cable to transmit video, audio and power.

6. DVR or Digital Video Recorder- converts an analog signal and converts it to digital to be stored on a storage device such as a hard drive, SD card or USB flash drive.

7. NVR or Network Video Recorder- Records already encoded video from the IP camera (no encoding is done by the NVR) and stored on the hard drive, SD card or USB flash drive. HD-CVI uses P2P (Peer to Peer Protocol) instead of an encoding decoding method between IP Camera and NVR this change in transmission between the camera and DVR allows for a smoother and more reliable image. In addition a built in low frequency modulator reduces high frequency interference created by cell phones and WIFI routers normally seen in IP and WIFI cameras.

Because of the way HD-CVI transmits you can now have extended cable distances on standard RG59 up to 1600 FT @720p and 980 FT @1080p. Where on IP based systems you have a 330 FT. Maximum and can vary based on POE switches and power outputs. On HD-SDI the Maximum distance using RG6 3GHZ quad shield is 500 FT. and standard RG59 300 FT can vary on quality of cable.

The added benefit to HD-CVI is you can still get HD video quality and not spend as much as you would with the IP setups. You can choose between a 720p or 1080P HD-CVI security cameras and both work with the same HD-CVI DVR. Below is an example of the HD-CVI @ 720p V.S IP @ 720p

SECURITY CAMERA KING – HD-CVI @ 720P

HDCVI-720p-Sample

SECURITY CAMERA KING – IP @ 720P

IP-Camera-720p-sample

Both images from above were are still images captured from our DVR-CVI8240M HD-CVI DVR and our NVR-ELM-16 NVR. As you can see both images have similar video qualities the only differences are the price and length of the cable runs.

HD-CVI is also beneficial for people that already have preexisting analog systems and want to upgrade to a HD system. There is no need to run new cables unlike the HD-SDI which required RG6 or the IP systems that require CAT6 cables. This alone can save you a few hundred dollars for a 4 camera install and 1000+ on an 8 camera install.

Below is a comparison Chart of what it would cost for an 8 camera HD-CVI, HD-SDI and IP system (accessories not included such as cable and power) for each type of setup.

COMPARISON CHART UPGRADE COST FROM AN EXISTING ANALOG SYSTEM to HD-CVI, HD-SDI or IP

The estimates are not 100% accurate and are based. This is just an example

HDCVI-HDSDI-IP

As you can see on a basic install the difference between HD-CVI and HD-SDI is $887.00, the comparison between HD-CVI and IP is $702.19. For those looking to get into HD playing field and are looking to save money HD-CVI is the way to go. Everything has been made easy by Security Camera King so your install process is easier and more economical.
