Top issue: Remote monitor recording with MULTIEYE®

Product Profile

The increasingly intensive discussion about an enhancement of the burden proof concerning transactions in banks, at brokers and security companies as well as the increasing requirements of companies of being able to record  correct and legally compliant actions if necessary, create an enormous demand for monitor recording systems.

artec technologies AG provides a software, which has delivered an optimal performance in practice for many years and which is completely integrated into the video surveillance system MULTIEYE.

Remote Monitor Recording stands for transmitting, displaying, recording and the replay of monitor signals, respectively display content by means of a network.

MULTIEYE® recorders offer the possibility to transmit not only the signals of video cameras, but also those of PC displays via the network, e.g in control centres, at production systems, automated teller machines, diagnostic devices or from MULTIEYE® recorders. Thus allowing the tracking and documentation of operational processes, dialogues, handling and malfunctions.

The DesktopLogger module

To process display signals of PC's in MULTIEYE® systems, the DesktopLogger module has been developed. The module consists of a client PC software and an activation licence for the MULTIEYE®-NET software or MULTIEYE®-NET recorders.

The client software has to be installed on the PC to be monitored. With the activation licence one or more channels on the MULTIEYE® recorder are activated. The client software scans the displays with a sample rate of several images per second - without any influence on the PC - and transmits the images via the network to the  MULTIEYE® recorder. The images are processed by the MULTIEYE® recorder just as those from a network camera, i.e. with live display, recording and remote transmission. Motion Detection and Smart Search functions, such as MotionTrack and MotionSearch can be used, too.

Surveillance of several displays on one PC

The DesktopLogger client software considers the number of connected displays at the PC, which has to be monitored as well as their individual display resolutions. Each display is processed as an individual channel in the MULTIEYE® system.

Connection of displays by means of a VGA splitter

If there is no possibility to install the client software on the PCs, the VGA displays can be scanned with a VGA/analogue splitter and the signals can be sent analogue to the MULTIEYE®-HYBRID recorder. This is possible with a resolution of max. 800 x 600 pixels. If higher resolutions have to be recorded in real-time, artec technologies AG offers, additionally to MULTIEYE®, another recording and transmission system:  The XBL-Broadcast Logger system with VGA/DVI ports.

Pure monitor recording

MULTIEYE® systems are also used for the pure display surveillance. - e.g. in he fields of further education or controlling of trade activities. One MULTIEYE® recorder can process up to 32 PC displays via the network; in combination with more recorders and the MULTIEYE® VideoCenter II a multitude of displays can be monitored and recorded.

Additional info

With the Desktop Logger (DTL) module and MULTIEYE systems, PC monitors can be kept under remote surveillance optimally.  This monitor remote surveillance works on a client-server basis via the network. The DTL software scans, encodes and streams the monitor images via the network to a MULTIEYE system.  In the MULTIEYE system, several monitor images are displayed and recorded per second.  Recording of the desktop images is done in standard video format in the MULTIEYE system, dependent upon activity; i.e., if no work is being done at a PC, no recordings are made.  DTL software supports all monitor resolution formats as well as dual and or quad-monitor operation on a PC.
