GeoVision Turbo Mode

GeoVision logoGeoVision has been one of the leaders in the market of digital surveillance for many years and always seems to produce some great products and some great features that work to enhance the way we use digital surveillance systems. Features with GeoVision continuously strive to make digital surveillance better and better each day and that is exactly what the company's newest feature, Turbo Mode, tries to do as well.

What Turbo Mode does is that it allows recording at the highest speed that GV-Combo Card A, which includes GV-1120A, GV-1240A and GV-1480A, can provide at the VGA and D1 resolutions. This basically means that the Type A card can record more frame rate per second than the current GV Combo card. Turbo Mode is not compatible with current GV Combo D-Type cards. If you are going to be using Turbo Mode and you have this setup then you will have to replace your old GV Combo card with 2 Type A cards.

Here are the minimum system requirements you will need to meet in order to run Turbo Mode on one GV-1408A card: Core 2 Quad 2.4GHz CPU, 2 x 512 MB Dual Channels of RAM for Windows 2000 and XP operating systems or 2 x 1 GB Dual Channels of RAM for Windows Server 2003 and Vista, ATI Radeon X1300 PCI-E or NVIDIA n7300 PCI-E VGA and 320GB HDD. The minimum system requirements to run two GV-1408A cards is a Core i7-920 2.66GHz CPU, 2 x 1 GB Dual Channels of RAM for all operating systems, ATI Radeon X1300 PCI-E or NVIDIA GeForce 7300 PCI-E VGA and 750 GB HDD.

Turbo Mode is out now on GeoVision 8.3 but a lot of details about it are hard to find. But nevertheless it seems like it will greatly improve digital surveillance recording and, hopefully, help out a lot of companies and businesses that use GeoVision digital recording systems for their security needs.
