Geovision Audio Surveillance Playback

Geovision DVR CardAudio surveillance can be played back and reviewed using your Geovision DVR if you have properly setup Geovision for audio recording. Audio playback is done using the same video log viewer that is used to play back video surveillance that our system captures. There are just a few settings that you must confirm are enabled in order to hear the audio surveillance that your Geovision has recorded.

To enable audio surveillance playback, please follow these steps.
  1. Start your Geovision system if it is not already running.
  2. Confirm that you have audio speakers connected to your Geovision computer and that they are working properly.
  3. From the System Menu on your Geovision DVR, select the View Log button (#4 below).

  7. Last, confirm that the Audio is turned on for playback. On the Geovision View Log screen, the small speaker icon should have audio coming out of it like the one pictured below on the left. If it looks like the one on the right click on it to turn the speakers on.
