Frames per Second

This is a 30 frames per second card. (NTSC - North American Video Standard) When it is being used to run PAL cameras (European Video Standard) the frames per second rate is 25.

If you attach one camera to the card then it will view and record at 30 frames per second. If you attach two cameras, that resource is shared between the two cameras, and you can view and record at 15 frames per second. If you attach four cameras, then you can view and record at 7.5 frames per second. A YouTube video can be 5 frames per second or less!

Why frames per second is NOT THAT IMPORTANT!!!!

Well, it is, if you are using the card to study the mating habits of hummingbirds!

But we believe that the object in good surveillance is to be able to obtain high quality images that you can email to the police, print out on your color inkjet, and that can be used to prosecute an offender.

Running four cameras on this card, an illegal act that takes 1-2 seconds, will produce 7 - 15 pictures that you can use to prove your case to the police!!!

This card is by far your most cost effective choice for professional surveillance. If you absolutely need higher frame rates, consider buying more than one card, and then you could have up to 4 cards in one machine, driving 4 cameras, each with 30 frames per second viewing and recording.

As soon as you go to the internet viewing, however, your frame rate will drop again, because the internet slows down the process.

Bottom line, 30 frames per second total resource is most likely all you need in 95% of the time you need surveillance.

There are Several Choices
of Motion Detection Software!!

We know of several excellent "feature rich" programs you can use with this card.

We will divide these programs into two categories.

(a) Free Programs that we know work but do not support

(b) The Blue Iris $49.95 Program - we provide
"Free Worldwide" telephone support for Blue Iris.

   Free Programs that we know will work - No Support Provided

        These programs may be very suitable to you if - - -

- You are comfortable installing new hardware and tricky software in your computer or have someone to help you

- Know how to install drivers.

- Know how to unzip a program and install it

-  Have a Pentium II - 500 Megahertz - 64 megs RAM or higher machine you want to dedicate to your surveillance project instead of throwing it away.

 Free Programs

1. Dico 800

2. PySoft's ActiveWebCam

3. Pico 2000 v1.8 - No support - Bootleg program - not recommended.

  None of the above programs will work with VISTA or Windows 7

4. There are several free programs that will run with this card in Linux.

We briefly describe each of these programs for you below .

PICO 2000

There are countless PICO installations out there.

This card will
replace any defective card that has been running a Pico Program.

PICO v1.8 - bootleg program - we  do not support - we sell the licensed version. See our notes below.

The Far East CCTV suppliers have a different respect for copyright than the rest of us. For years they have widely distributed a bootleg copy of PICO 2000 that was written for Pentium II - 500 Megahertz system with 128 megs of RAM.

This illegal program has install issues, is not fully functional, and is not stable.

--------------------------

Linux 

Here is an email from a Linux User.

Hi DuncansOnline,
Thanks again for your detailed recommendations; I just wanted to give you some feedback regarding my progress.

As you predicted, the capture card worked fine under XP/MCE, although I ended up preferring DICO over PICO, mostly because I haven't liked setting my screen resolution to 800x600 since 1995 or so.

Anyway, what's much more exciting is that I actually managed to get the card working under Linux today. Or rather - it worked pretty much out of the box (I am running Fedora Core 5 on AMD64) without me doing much at all. And while that was a bit of a pain in the butt ('cos you need MySQL and httpd/php and such), I also got it working using ZoneMinder (web-based surveillance tool).

So that's quite nice, since I really like my box running under Linux for
work purposes, and the web-based access seems much more thought through than what's in either PICO or DICO.

Enjoy ;)
 Torsten

Note from DuncansOnline: We notice with a Google search there is lots of support and discussion amongst Linux users for this card. That is good, because we are not Linux people and can provide no support in this area. Thankfully the support is out there.

Another Linux User's Success Story -

My card arrived today. I immediately put it into my home server and it
basically ran right away. The card has an Conexcant BT-878a chip which
is supported by all newer Linux distributions out of the box. That
means, the kernel identifies the card and creates a standard video
device which can be used by any arbitrary Linux software, may it be
motion, ZoneMinder or even Skype.

To get your card running in PAL mode, you have to create a file

/etc/modprobe.d/50-tv.conf and put the following in it:

options bttv card=77 tuner=4 radio=0 triton1=0 vsfx=0 autoload=0


You might also have to go to /etc/modprobe.d/50-blacklist.

conf and
comment out (= put a # in front of it) the following line:

alias pci:
v0000109Ed0000036Esv00000000sd00000000bc04sc00i00 bttv_skip_it

After that, the card is recognized and initialized at boot time

without any problems.

One annoying thing is that the card has only 352x288 resolution, which is 1/4 PAL. You might want to point this out a bit more prominently because if you sell a card for NTSC or PAL, people expect 1/1 resolution, which is 720x576 for PAL, unless you tell it has only 1/4 resolution :).

Kind regards / ystävällisin terveisin,

Stefan
 

Hi,

I have to apologize - the card is doing 768x576. It just needed a bit

more tweaking with the software I use ("motion for Linux").

Sorry for that :).

PICO2000® version 3.0 ORS
 


The PICO COMPANY is now OUT-of-Business abandoning all their users...
.......one reason is that they could no longer compete against better programs such as the Blue Iris program that we sell.


BEST OF ALL PROGRAM CHOICES

Our ""Newest"" Surveillance Program
Available for $49.95
Supports up to 64 Cameras.

    Important Comment:
    Blue Iris is a Hybrid CCTV Camera Management Program. Being a Hybrid program means it can manage both analog and IP cameras together, in the same interface.

    To run analog cameras, you will need a PCI Capture Card to be installed in your computer. Further down this listing we explain what type of card you need, and we also sell that card in our Store. Once you purchase the program we will send you detailed download and installation instructions that we have carefully worked out for you to be 100% successful in installing your analog cameras into Blue Iris.

    If you are running just IP cameras, you will not need a capture card, and the download instructions we send you after your purchase will have you up and running in no time.

    Blue Iris Software is FULLY Guaranteed to work with your computer and your DVR card or your money is refunded.

    Why Buy From Us! You can purchase Blue Iris from several sellers including the developer. By purchasing from us, you have access to our 7 day - 24 hr support that includes a Toll Free line for all of North America. We are the only reseller that is available 7 days a week, for not only installation support, but also ongoing lifetime support.

Blue Iris versus PICO 2000 - Important Features Comparison
 

PICO 2000  (The PICO Company is now Out-of-Business!!)

Pros
Fairly easy to install
Works on Vista - 32 and Windows 7 - 32 systems

Cons
Can only view analog cameras
Requires a client program called the Intelligent Remote Module to be installed on any remotely accessing computer

This client program can only view one camera at a time - you can switch to different cameras but there is no multi view

No brightness or contrast control for each camera

One free reset - the each reset is $15.00

No upgrade path from 4 to 8 to 12 or 16 cameras...you need to purchase a new license

Quality of video will appear to be slightly washed out


Blue Iris

Pros
This is a hybrid program - meaning you can view a total of 64 analog and IP cameras with the same $49.95 license

Remote access can be done using a browser such as Internet Explorer with multi view

Smart phone access with browser...apps are in development for iPhone and Android

3 resets allowed with each install without need to contact developer  - and subsequent resets from the developer are free.

Superb video quality

 Cons
Needs special attention to install - we supply detailed step-by-step installations instructions with screen shots

Drivers for the Capture Card for 64 bit versions of Vista and Windows 7 do not seem to be available

We have reports of successful Capture Card driver installs on Windows 7 - but at present we have no further details
