We just finished day two of three days of Certification over @ GeoVision’s USA offices in Irvine, and it’s been worth every second. GeoVision has always been the gold standard for their GeoVision DVR cards, which turn a PC into a Digital Video Recorder, they had been lacking in network IP cameras.
GeoVision 4 Megapixel Fish Eye Camera
That’s all changed in the last few months with GeoVision launching a ton of new IP cameras, and one of the coolest is their GeoVision 4MP Fisheye IP Camera 360 degree megapixel cameras. While the ability to film a complete room with one camera, and the ability to break it up into either 2 or 4 quadrants, and have them rotate with software enhancement is cool, the auto tracking feature blew us away.
When the auto tracking feature is enabled, the camera will automatically track a person or object when it enters the picture, while they walk around the room.
And their latest version of their 8.5 software has many, many improvements. If you are running older software, you must upgrade to 8.5 for many reasons. One is the ability to run higher frame rates due to it utilizing the CPU more efficiently.
And the latest version uses the Sandy Bridge feature in the new Intel CPU’s that let the software hand off some of the processing to the GPU, instead of dumping it all on the CPU, resulting in a 20% drop in CPU load from 70% to about 50%. I am foaming at the mouth!
If all that has your head spinning faster than Linda Blair in the Exorcist, give us a call and we can splain it in layman’s terms.
