Our GeoVision surveillance DVRs and Windows-based computers that come pre-built with a GeoVision card. Each GeoVision DVR is professionally installed and tested before being shipped.
Important Product Update / Discontinued
GeoVision has discontinued DVR capture cards, so it is no longer possible to build GeoVision PC based recorders with BNC video inputs. Please see the below information and refer to our
Viewtron security camera DVR page. We highly recommend these as a replacement. Another option may be to use GeoVision video servers instead of capture cards. Please email us if you would like to setup a free phone consultation to discuss any of this further.

Geovision surveillance systems are a PC based DVR system designed to process video, audio, and data from a local and remote network / Internet surveillance environment. Geovision utilizes the most advanced software and hardware digital video compression and processing technologies to generate the best possible video quality most efficiently. Our systems are custom built with the DVR card of your choice ranging from the entry level GV-600 card to the flagship GV-1480 card. Up to 16 cameras can be connected and viewed live on a local monitor screen, on a local area network (LAN), or remotely over the Internet.
Surveillance video can be recorded based on specific schedules, 24/7 around the clock, or based on motion detection recording. The video is stored on the local hard drive of the computer and can also be stored on an optical storage device by using Geovision Backup System. As of Geovision version 8.2, Geovision now also provides a hybrid solution allowing both IP security cameras an analog CCTV Cameras to be connected to one system. The strong networking capability enables video and audio data to be transferred over the Internet via the WebCam server for viewing on a remote computer, 3G mobile phones, PDA or Geovision remote monitoring applications such a the center V2.
Geovision PC based systems can be built as hybrid surveillance systems which can connect to analog CCTV cameras using BNC connectors and coaxial cable as well as network IP cameras using cat-5 cables with RJ-45 ethernet connectors.

Geovision 1000 series DVR cards (GV-1120, GV-1240, GV-1480) allows you to allocate up to 8 channels on the 16 channel cards to be used for Geovision IP cameras.
