  1. I've hijacked the video feed from a Commax intercom and fed it into a Vivotek TS8102 to run on a NUUO NVRsolo. Problem is, the camera is NTSC. And it appears that the TS8102 isn't displaying it properly despite me attempting to force the signal into NTSC. On the flip side, if I attempt to force a PAL camera into NTSC, then the image still displays properly, despite the settings on the encoder. I thought this might be an issue with the encoder but I replicated the issues with an old GV VS02. I'm in Aus so NTSC cameras aren't very common. I know the Commax cam is NTSC. Spec sheet is here. It's the CS http://www.sirius.kiev.ua/images/documents/instrukcii/domofon/Video_paneli/drc-40cs.pdf The Commax indoor monitor will only display NTSC Does anyone know how to solve this or know what the issue is?

    Do I actually need a geovision card? For GV IP cameras

    This is incorrect. Geovision NVR software will happily run without a DVR card (since it's designed to and has done for the past 8+ years). OP - Yes, you can install Geovision NVR software and run your Geovision IP cameras without need for a license dongle or DVR card (why they still use dongles I have no idea). However, if you want to use no GV products then you will need to purchase some licenses. None of the associated programs (playback etc) need a license to run, irrespective which cameras you use, but of course these are effectively useless without GV-NVR.

    WDR & Megapixels

    Thanks Matt, but I was more looking towards the WDR performance in a hostel foyer. It will be pointed straight at a door to outside. I do understand that CCD > CMOS for WDR but I hope to use a MP solution rather than analog.
  4. Now that a number of manufacturers have introduced WDR into their megapixel range. I was wondering who has the best performing WDR in the megapixel market. If no one does know, does anyone have a sub to IPVM and wants to C&P the article to me in an email?
  5. Without shooting you down, I've found a lot of cameras are auto discoverable also have auto focus assist and of course most come with smart setup so you can incrementally assign IPs to all your cameras. Also, when did NUUO start charging on an annual basis. They certainly don't here.
  6. Brickcom have some good wireless cams. My other thought. Could you not just mount a 10MP Arecont or Avigilon or something with a nice fat 25mm or 50mm fixed lens on the side of a building pointing out into the runway?

    So stupid...

    Hope it was set up enough to record it! Yup. Even tried to deny it to the insurance company too until they were told there was CCTV footage.
  8. How much electrical knowledge do you need?

    So stupid...

    I'd just finished installing 1 camera at a school and as I was setting it up on the DVR I saw a teacher do a hit and run on my car.

    Geovision 8.5.4 released on Friday

    They just need to stop using dongles for everything. I have quite a few legacy systems where the dongle system is causing me issues

    More for the Installation Hall of Shame

    Next time I go up, I'll take some pics of my gf's pharmacy. It's pretty laughable! The best part is the blu-tak'd camera
