Capture and analysis (in Motion Detection mode) of images at up to 768 x 576 (CCIR/PAL & SECAM) 640 x 480 (EIA/NTSC).


Compared to conventional VHS or SUPER-VHS recording systems that are susceptible to fluctuating results depending on condition of Tape, VCR Heads and Transport mechanisms.

CCIR/PAL recording up to 768 (H) x 576 (V) = 442 368 pixels.

VHS VCR: CCIR/PAL recording ~ 320 x ~ 576 = 184 320 pixels, ~ 58% less data.

SUPER-VHS VCR: CCIR/PAL recording ~ 530 x ~ 576 = 305 280 pixels, ~ 31% less data.

Above comparison is based on a VCR operating in Frame-Recording mode, as most VCRs (in Time-Lapse mode) only record Fields, the situation is considerably worse as only 288 (not 576) horizontal scan lines are recorded. In Field mode per camera pixels for VHS are: 92 160, 79% less data, for Super-VHS 152 640, 65% less data.

A SUPERB SOLUTION when paired with our HIGH-RESOLUTION 600 + Horizontal Line CAMERAS to capture very detailed images of Motor Vehicle Number Plates and for Identification purposes, Number Plate recognition in good conditions with scene widths of 6 ~ 10 metres is achievable.

With up to 795 Horizontal Pixels our High-Resolution Cameras paired with 768 x 576 Capture results in images with detail not possible with even a SUPER-VHS VCR.

Images captured at 768 x 576 consist of 2.4 x more Pixels than VHS Field-Recording or 1.45 x more Pixels than SUPER-VHS Field-Recording.

Images captured at 768 x 576 consist of 4.8 x more Pixels than VHS Field-Recording or 2.9 x more Pixels than SUPER-VHS Field-Recording.

(Some users have reported success with following ChipSets - we include this for informational purposes only and do not recommend or suggest that any of these will function with GoVideo-1 System. DSI (Digicon systems), D13635-1/5655 with Creative Win Modem, Connexant sold under name of "Pine" no. FM-3711-11 V4.0 W03/01, Rockwell 6793 PCI Modem, Intel 815).

Hard Disk Space requirements are impossible to specify, there are numerous variables that will affect the size of each AVI Video Clip, they include: Image Resolution - Compression - Capture Rate (Frames-per-Second) - PC Speed/Performance - Image Content:- A solitary person moving about (only a portion of image is changing) - VERSUS - Numerous persons and/or vehicles moving about (large portions of image are changing).

Below are examples from a system that operates continuously 24 hours per day, PC hardware is: AMD K6-2/450 CPU (approximately equal to a 450 MHz Pentium), Epox MVP3 Apollo AGP/PCI ChipSet Motherboard with 1 MB L2 cache, 128 MB 100 MHz DRAM, IDE 33 ATA HDD.

This data is from a system operating in Motion Detection Mode, Camera is a 600 + H-Line Colour Day / Night / IR unit with Automatic Iris Lens and Infra-Red illumination, the scene is the driveway / entrance to our warehouse. Activity in this situation includes: one to several persons moving about in the driveway, motor vehicles coming and going and passing motor vehicles. A person moving about in the driveway occupies 60% ~ 20% of the captured image frame height, a Truck occupies up to ~ 40% of image area. The Motion Detection Sensitivity level is such that a Cat moving about at an ~ 6 metre wide point in the scene triggers recording Day or Night (under InfraRed illumination). GoVideo settings are: Resolution = 384 x 288, Compression = 5 (minimum compression, therefore highest image quality), Frame Rate is set to maximum for this Computer, 62 per 10 seconds.

There are 5 levels of Compression, with a static scene and resolution = 384 x 288, frame file size varies between 1 kB ~ 7 kB as compression is varied from 1 (maximum) to 5 (minimum). The minimum Frame Rate is 1 per 10 seconds, the maximum rate is dependent on PC Speed/Performance and resolution. AVI file data (number of frames) was obtained using MS Media Player with Indeo video 5.04 Decompression Filter - Video Renderer.

Over a 20 day period 3 547 events were captured, they occupied 467 MB of Disk Space, the smallest AVI file was 12 kB (2 Frames), the maximum was 8 389 kB (896 Frames).

Examples of some files: 14 kB (2 frames), 56 kB (12 frames), 163 kB (38 frames), 294 kB (59 frames), 66 kB (104 frames), 722 kB (137 frames). There is no direct relationship between the number of frames and file size, this is variable and depends on frame to frame changes in the images.

Above data is from an actual operating system and is presented as a guide only, actual results in each situation will vary considerably due to the numerous variables involved. Capture at 768 x 576 approximately quadruples storage requirements.
