    Software Incompatible With Location

    The patch they provided on Geovision's website did ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to fix the problem. Upgrading to a higher version didn't help (from 8.4 to 8.5.3) on a brand new install. For our issue with Windows 7 64-bit Premium (which GV said is not supported), we made the network to be a "home" network instead of "work". It has worked 4 days without a hitch. Thank god I did not have to sacrifice a chicken (this time).
  2. Hi everyone, GV 8.5 NVR 6 Analog cams (channels 1-5) 1 GV MFD130 IP cam (channel 6) Users: --"user" = limited user --"owner" = supervisor Scenario 1: ========= ** User "user" which is a restricted user is logged in at the NVR. ** Its privileges are only camera 1 locally, but all 6 cams remotely. ** User "owner" which is a supervisor logs in remotely using webcam. ** He can change to all cameras EXCEPT channel 6 where it hangs. Scenario 2: ========= Same issue as scenario 1 with Multiview except "Video Loss" shows instead of "Connect to Server..." and hanging. Scenario 3: ========= I have tested this with only being local to the network with laptop, instead of going through the internet and same failure. It seems like if NVR is locally logged in by a restricted user, IP cameras don't show remotely, no matter what privilege the remote user has. Has anyone seen this? I think this is a defect, unless I'm missing something obvious. Thank you for your input.

    Does the GeoVision IP cam need a dongle?

    Rory, This is from the 8.3 Guide -- It looks like if you buy the GV IP cameras, there is no charge & 16 + 8 = 24 channels. If you use other brand cameras, you'd have to buy a license for each @ about $130 ea. See page 7: http://www.geovision.com.tw/upload/en/Datasheet_NVRV83.pdf.

    POS Solution for IP Surveillance

    Thanks for the replies everyone. I had forgotten about this post!!! We have been using GV IP POS overlay for a while now and are very disappointed in the interface and how clunky and small the integrated video is. In fact, we have stopped selling GV POS inserter and are actively looking for something with similar features. We typically use EPSON TM88 printers which are extremely common in the restaurant/retail environments. When using this device, the text all runs together. More importantly, it doesn't work if the POS device is sitting between the POS itself and pole display. So the only option is to use it between the POS and the printer and one has to print a receipt in order for it to show on the screen. This is problematic for many of the restaurants we work with. Here are the requirements we/our customers have: 1) Must be able to use the device without printing a receipt 2) Must be able to do text searches and correlate with video surveillance. a) This would come into play when the crooked bartender rings up a Cranberry juice and sells a Vodka Tonic and pockets the difference! b) Clerk scans a candy bar and sells a 12-pack Corona and puts $12.49 into their personal savings account courtesy of the store owner 3) Need to be able to use with Aimetis Alnet or other VMS software. I know there is NetTransact, but last time I checked, that was still vaporware and OnSSI would not release the actual diagrams on how it would work. I will check out Nuuo and see if it fits the needs. Thanks again for the heads up.

    IR Recommendation for Marine Application

    Are you talking about the some type of flood light? I am not sure how wide and far those will illuminate. Do you have any recommendations? Can you think of any pros and cons? Thanks in advance.
  6. We have installed a Spectra Dome Nitrogen pressure from Pelco which works AWESOME. Our customer is a big time developer and has several yatchs he wants the same PTZ installed. But, (you know that was coming) he is often at sea at night and would like better visibility, so I am looking for recommendations on IR illuminators. I know Extreme makes a bunch and so does Pelco, but for marine applications is a bit different as water absorbs the IR light and the choppiness of water will further degrade the effectiveness. Does anyone have a recommendation that has worked well? I'm looking for actual install experience. Thanks in advance.
  7. We are moving away from analog and have almost converted to 100% IP solution. The problem is that there is very limited software solution for the POS integration (Net Transact from ONSSI). We are using Aimetis and wanted to know if there are any solutions with that, or anyone else that has used a POS integration with an IP solution. Also, using a Geovision NVR with IP cameras is not the best option. I want something with pure IP if possible.

    Geovision Data Capture v3e and printer

    Hi Pat, We install about 10 of these a month and the only way to do this is to connect it to a different serial/parallel port and then configure your POS software to use a Pole Display. POS-X has some relatively inexpensive pole displays for about $125 for serial or parallel. Peruse eBay or even Craigslist Web sites and you might find some pretty cheap. I can walk you thourgh the POS configuration, if it's something we've integrated before.

    GV800 8.2 Audio Does Not Show

    Ended up rebuilding the system from scratch. I uninstalled and reinstalled 8.2 about 6 times including deleting registry keys, *.ini files and anything else they had in their instructions.

    GV800 8.2 Audio Does Not Show

    Hello, I have a problem that GV tech support cannot help with. It seems that their only solution to problems they can't solve is to rebuild the OS or get a different PC or reinstall the software!!! We have a new HP PC with Dual-Core AMD chips, 2GB RAM and 500GB HDD split in 2. It also has onboard sound card which works just fine and I can play all kinds of sounds coming out of the PC. The problem is that when we try to configure audio in the 8.2 interface, it does not have the option for audio. It simply doesn't show. Any help is appreciated.

    OnSSI experiences...please

    Hello, Your client speed depends on a lot of factors. It depends on their PC speed, RAM and DSL. What we have done on every OnSSI install is to do a proof-of-concept with one camera first (you get a 30 day license and two free cameras from them) and see how that works; then, you can go and deploy a larger environment.
  12. Folks, I'd like your expert opinion on which wireless system to use. We're going with the following: =GV/HP DVR =6 Sanyo DN with Rainbow Lens =Outdoor housing with HB =Some type of 900Mhz Wireless system to minimize interference I would like a suggestion for a wireless system that can go about 1000 feet, with a few power poles and relatively no trees. Thanks in advance.

    cctv help

    Try the GeoVision cards. We use them in most of our PC-based installs. For retail shops, there is also a POS box that basically overlays the POS transaction information on top of the video so you can tell what they rung up (or not!) Just try to make sure you don't buy a counterfit, although some of them are pretty hard to tell. GeoVision has a way to spot counterfit cards, so you might want to peruse their site.

    Unless you're in the gaming industry, we never recommend recording @ 30FPS. Frame rates of 5-10 should be plenty to capture what you're trying to see. The 120FPS advertised capture rate is also usually for CIF resolution, not D1.

    need help choosing a camera

    Carl, Security is not just about cameras! Lighting should be taken into consideration. We just did a job in Tacoma where they had a lot of vandalism and two dinky lights. We had them trim some trees and bushes, cut down one tree that was a huge obstruction and replace the dinky lights with motion sensing halogen lights. It was a total make over for the place in addition to the 32 cameras we installed. Bottom line is that cameras are not always the be-all-end-all answer!
