Geovision DVR Kit Transcript:

Tom: Hi, I am interested in purchasing your PRO-GVK4B Geovision DVR Card Kit. I have a couple of questions. The first question is how are these security cameras powered? and the second question is what is the frame rate for the video?

* Welcome Tom! Your request has been directed to the Customer Service department. Please wait for our operator to answer your call.
* Call accepted by operator Customer Support. Currently in room: Customer Support, Tom.
Customer Support: Hi Tom.  I am finishing a call.  Can you please hold for 1 minute?

Tom: Yes

Customer Support: OK

Customer Support: The cameras are powered by DC power supplies that come with the 4 camera kits.  The 8 camera DVR kits come with power supply boxes.

Tom: ahh ok I thought so

Customer Support: The framerate for the video depends on which Geovision card you choose.  The GV-650 is a 60 FPS card.  The GV-800 is a 120FPS card. Divide the framerate by the number of cameras that will be recording at the same time.  Max frame rate per camera is 30FPS.

Tom: ahh ok, so the GV-650 for example will only do 15 FPS per camera?

Customer Support: if 4 cameras are recording at the same time, that is correct.

Tom: I see.  my problem is this, I need to power these cameras, without running an extra DC power line to them.  how I can better explain that.

Customer Support: The plug and play cables also run the power. The same with RG59 siamese cable.

Tom: those are purchased seperate right?

Customer Support: no. the plug and play cables come in the Geovision kits.  one 100 footer for each camera.  You can upgrade to 150 foot if needed.

Tom: so I could plug them into a regular wall outlet then? sorry for the 800 million newbie questions
Customer Support: correct. no problem.  You can take a look at this video to get an idea: How to connect security cameras video. The camera connections work the same for Geovision.

Tom: so basically I would need nothing else, just a computer and monitor and I am all set to go if I purchase this kit?

Customer Support: correct

Tom: ok one last question. what geovision card would i need I wanted 640x480 or higher with 30 fps a second on each camera? they will be viewed at all times. I cannot have any hiccups in video.  I have a pretty powerful computer to install this in

Customer Support: 4 cameras right?

Tom: ya

Customer Support: gv-800-4
Tom: ok

Customer Support: you can select that card if you order that kit

Tom: ahh I see.  that is good to know

Tom: OK well I appreciate all of your help, I need to go do some measuring to make sure the 100ft cables will be enough

Customer Support: OK.  If you need to upgrade the cables, just let me know. The shopping cart does not let you do that, but  you can call 888-849-2288 and we can upgrade you.

Tom: how much extra is the upgrade?

Customer Support: $6 per cable extra

Tom: not bad Thank You again!
