Grandtec MAG-5000 Magic Guard USB
Security is important to you - that's why you have four different cameras running, keeping a constant eye on your home or business. But maintaining four separate monitors and recording systems can be costly and takes up a lot of space. GrandTec has created a space-saving solution with the Grand Magic Guard. This digital video capture system uses a plug & play USB 2.0 interface so that you can monitor and record feed from up to four different video signals simultaneously on your computer's hard drive. You may also view the feeds on a TV monitor in either a quad display that shows all four images at once, or a dual display consisting of a main image with a small picture-in-picture window. Alternating among images in the latter option is easy, using the included IR remote control. Since the 4-Camera Color Quad works with virtually any type of camera, you're not limited to certain brands. This 4-Camera Color Quad can automatically save such data as date/time and brightness/contrast/saturation/hue for each camera. It also notates alarms when video is lost or motion is detected. The preview window size is adjustable, and you can even define the environment you do not wish to observe by adjusting mask area and sensitivity. Wow, all that, and at a price lower then the most basic models being sold elsewhere
