Windows XP, Vista, and Window 7. Full audio capabilities. View your cameras LIVE through the Internet using your DSL or Cable Modem internet connection!
Our real-time, 8-channel DVR card allows you to have a digital-based surveillance system for less than you might think. This is a PCI-based, 8-channel video, 240 frame-per-second, real-time DVR card with 4 audio inputs. 1 card occupies 2 PCI slots on your Windows PC motherboard.
This DVR card is not for laptops and it is not PCI express. It is not Windows 7 64-bit compatible. It is only 32-bit compatible. Before ordering, make sure you know whether your PC is 32 bit or 64 bit.
If you have a 64-bit system, then you must purchase a Geovision DVR card.
You may set each camera's settings individually. These settings include the recording schedule, motion- detection area, and picture quality. You can combine color, black and white, or wireless cameras on this card. All of the DVR software is included! Our realtime DVR cards are stackable! This means you can upgrade your system simply by purchasing another card and installing it into another vacant PCI slot on your motherboard.
These cards encode in H.264 compression quality. This is the top-of-the-line in live and recorded footage. This means that whatever you record using the DVR card will be crisp, clear, and sharp. Colors will be more vibrant with better contrast. You can't find better video quality than H.264.
The recorded video is all watermarked for security and time and date stamped. You may lock the program so that it cannot be minimized or closed, ensuring uninterrupted surveillance.
You are also able to view all of your cameras live over the internet from any computer in the world! You can view both live footage and recorded footage. Simply type the IP address of your surveillance computer into the computer your are viewing from. This is the same thing as typing in a website address. A broadband internet connection (cable modem, DSL, etc.) is highly recommended for Internet viewing.
The included MultiConnect software allows you to connect to several different locations simultaneously and view them on one screen over the internet. This feature is great for businesses with multiple locations or offices where you would like to see cameras from all locations at the same time on one screen. For example, if you have 4 different stores, you can view every store's cameras on one screen simultaneously from anywhere else in the world.
Set up different accounts with different privileges. Specify which user can view which cameras.
This is a simple to use, economically priced, real-time DV card, perfect for the small business or home owner. The minimum computer requirements are hardly worth mentioning: Windows PC and a PCI slot. If you are not satisfied with this DVR card or it does not operate properly in your Windows PC, you can return it for an upgrade to a Geovision DVR card. The only semi requirement for a PC is that some people do have to upgrade to a full-blown video card if their PC has on-board video only. Then we recommend you upgrade to a video card such as a GeForce FX5200 or equivalent.
