    The following chat transcript has some very useful information related to the Geovision GV-VS04H video server which provides CCTV to IP conversion for 4 cameras.

    Customer:

    Regarding the Geovision GV-VS04H network video server, I just wanted to make sure all 4 cameras could be veiwed at the same time & if i used used 25 or so if they would work with evologic software

    CCTV Camera Pros Support:

    Hello, yes you can view all 4 cameras on the same screen. From which device were you planning on viewing from?

    Customer:

    I was wanting to use a mac pro with evologic software

    CCTV Camera Pros Support:

    I am not familiar with evologic software. Is that for video surveillance?

    Customer:

    yes

    CCTV Camera Pros Support:

    Can you explain how you wanted the video server and the evologic software to work together?

    Customer:

    i currently have less than 100 analog cams & i want to convert them to ip & use software on a mac to veiw them

    CCTV Camera Pros Support:

    ah, I see. In order to view cameras connected to the Geovision GV-VS04H, you must use the included NVR software that comes with the server. This software is designed for Windows. Your Mac computers can then connect to the webserver on the Geovision NVR software PC to view your cameras.

    CCTV Camera Pros Support:

    Unfortunately there is not a direct interface to the web server of the video server for non-Internet Explorer browsers. You can connect direct to the server using iPhone, iPad, and Android. But not direct from Mac. I have spoken to Geovision product management and requested that direct Mac access be added to the development roadmap.

    Does this make sense?

    Did you realize that for Mac access you do need to run the Geovision NVR software on a Windows PC?

    Customer:

    no i didnt.. i am currently using pci cards in multiple pcs & its working ok but the pci cards are getting obsolete. i need something with more power & less pc's

    Customer:

    i would like to use network type cams instead of going thru the internet

    CCTV Camera Pros Support:

    So you are looking to migrate over time from Analog to IP cameras. That is the overall goal?

    Customer:

    yes, i need something to network my cctv cams if possible

    CCTV Camera Pros Support:

    OK, I think I have a better solution for you. For now, you can use Geovision DVR cards & your existing PCs for your existing CCTV cameras. The Geovision software that is included with the Geovision DVR cards is a hybrid so will work with both Geovision DVR cards / CCTV cameras as well as Geovision IP cameras

    Customer:

    a pc can only handle 16 cams, i need something to handle at least 100 cams

    CCTV Camera Pros Support:

    The Geovision software is awesome and accessible by both Mac and PC. Also iPhone, iPad, Android, Blackckberry, etc. Each GV PC can actually handle up to 32 cameras.

    Customer:

    i want to do away with pc's

    CCTV Camera Pros Support:

    There is software to manage more than one PC to scales to hundreds or thousands of cameras.

    CCTV Camera Pros Support:

    And you also want to eventually do away with your analog cameras?

    Customer:

    yes

    CCTV Camera Pros Support:

    So you want a non-PC based recorder?

    Customer:

    yes

    CCTV Camera Pros Support:

    OK. Let me check something…

    CCTV Camera Pros Support:

    This is a stand alone NVR that we supply: http://www.cctvcamerapros.com/Network-Digital-Video-Recorder-p/nuuo-nv-4160.htm

    CCTV Camera Pros Support:

    There is a new version coming out next month that is completely accessible via Mac OS

    CCTV Camera Pros Support:

    There is no single device that I know of that can handle 100+ cameras and has direct Mac access. You will need multiple recorders but they can be managed centrally so it does not seem like separate physical devices. For your existing IP cameras, this IP server is compatible with the NUUO NVR: http://www.cctvcamerapros.com/Video-Encoder-p/vivotek-vs7100.htm. That IP server is also accessible directly from Mac using Safari, Firefox, or Chrome web browsers, unlike the Geovision IP server.

    Customer:

    i will check this out .. thanx

    CCTV Camera Pros Support:

    your welcome. Do you have any additional questions?

    Customer:

    that will do for now ..have a good one

    CCTV Camera Pros Support:

    OK, if you think of anything, you can email me at mike@cctvcamerapros.net. Thank You!

    The GV-VS04H network video server supports iPhone access using the free GV-Eye HD iPhone app. See the below video for a demonstration of the video server connected to 4 CCTV cameras being viewer remotely over the Internet from an iPhone.

    Another nice thing is that the App can connect to multiple servers so are not limited viewing only one set of 4 cameras. Also the app works with all Geovision IP cameras.
