A customer recently asked us for advice on the following: We recently purchased a surveillance camera recording system that included an 8-channel DVR (Digital Video Recorder).
We use this recorder for monitoring our materials tests and typically record four different camera views. We archive recorded video data from the DVR and transfer it to a PC. There is a common time stamp embedded onto each camera view which works great, but we really need the time stamp of the video to be displayed in tenths or even hundredths of a second. For general security camera use, one second increments are probably sufficient, but for our work, fractions of a second are more useful.
Do you have any recorders that can display the timestamp of the video in tenths or hundredths of a second accuracy?
CCTV Camera Pros reply:
Thank You for contacting CCTV Camera Pros. Although none of the stand-alone / embedded DVRs that we carry will time stamp the video beyond seconds, our Geovision PC based recorders do time stamp much to a much more granular level. Please see screen shot below that shows video playback on a Geovision PC based DVR. You will see in the lower left that the time stamp is recorded to the thousandths of a second level.
