Digital video recording
Ladon is a modern computer system replacing all the analogue displays, switches, cassette recorders and multiplexers. It offers cheap and utterly functional monitoring system based on PC computer instead.

The system consists of video capture card MetaGuard and software application that allows video watching, hard disc recording and its future high fidelity examining. Hence easy service and friendly user graphic interface there is no necessity of professional servicing. Recording can be started regularly every time, individually given to each camera (from 0.1 second!) or it can be initiated automatically only when movement in the picture preceived. Ladon remembers all the registered pictures for a given time, so you can easily receive informations about the recorded events.

By using video cmopression of large efficiency, the disc memory consumption has been reduced significantly and the image keeping period has been enlarged to a few dozen days.
