Geovision Video Backup by Time Frame

Geovision DVR Card Geovision surveillance systems are able to backup / archive surveillance video to writable CD, DVDs, external drives, and just about any type of storage device recognized by your Geovision system. The video backup system allows you to also include the Geovision video log viewer software on the CD or DVD you are exporting to so that you can view the videos on any Windows Vista or XP computer without needing to install any software. Please follow the below instructions to backup video from your Geovision system. These instructions cover how to backup video by selecting a specific time frame that you want to archive. If you are trying to backup specific motion detected or recording events, please refer to these instructions: Geovision video backup by event.
