5.2 Using ASUS VideoSecurity
The ASUS VideoSecurity lets you detect intruders into your system and
environmental changes and monitor a specified location or any incoming
visitor. If VideoSecurity detects any deviation from the norm that you set, it
may give an error message or not. Regardless of any messages,
VideoSecurity will record:
•
The last two detected snapshot image files from the video captured
stream (saved into a access file named watch dog.mdb). Any
image processing or editing software can then be used to view,
modify, or distribute them.
5.2.1 Limitations
Because of differences in hardware sensitivity, VideoSecurity may not
completely detect all possible errors. Before you execute VideoSecurity,
there are some limitations you have to understand so that you can
appropriately use it.
•
Due to changing temperatures, the captured image of some CCDs
will be twisted, which may give a wrong detection.
•
If the features (e.g., color, luminance) of the object are similar to
that of background, the object may not be detected clearly.
•
The CCD cannot capture the object smoothly and immediately
when an object moves too fast.
VideoSecurity is designed for the
widest environments possible and
error conditions, therefore it is
necessary to tune the parameters
in VideoSecurity Setup Wizard to
get the best detection results.
5.2.2 Setup Wizard
Setup Wizard guides you through
setting up the VideoSecurity
features.
1. To open Setup Wizard, click the Start button, and then point to
Programs, ASUS Video Security, and then click Setup Wizard. The
Video Security Setup Wizard dialog box appears.
22
ASUS V9950 Series User Guide
The following descriptions are only for selected features of the ASUS
VideoSecurity utility. For a full description of the features described in
this manual and other features, refer to the ASUS VideoSecurity
Online Help (HTML) format included with your support CD. You may
also click the Help button to open the online help file.
Detecting Sensibility
This is an important parameter when setting up VideoSecurity. Your environment may change often but VideoSecurity is concerned only when there is a
change in the environment. Make sure that you select a suitable sensitivity
for your environment.
Detecting Interval(frame/sec)
This sets the scan rate. Default is 2 frames/sec. The higher the scan rate,
the more accurate is the detection. Higher rates, however, entails a higher
CPU usage. Do not use a high rate when you plan to use VideoSecurity
while using other applications.
Working Directory
The Working Directory is the folder where the utility stores its temporary
working and log files. The default is C:\VIDEOSEC. The directory is userconfigurable. When VideoSecurity is ran, a sub-directory automatically created under the main directory, using the current date and time as the folder
name. For example, “1999.11.30_12.30.20” means that VideoSecurity was
started on 30 November 1999 at 12:30:20 PM.
Do not change the working folder’s name while VideoSecurity is
running. Otherwise, a fatal runtime error will occur.
Detect Region
• Full window detects all visible area when watchdog function is on.
• User define region detects only the area defined by the user whe
watchdog function is on. Feature will take effect only when
VideoSecurity runs the next time.
Window Style
• Normal Window is the default style, that is, VideoSecurity will function
as a standard Windows program.
• Minimized as a tray icon lets you hide the main VideoSecurity
window. This is useful when you don’t want anyone to know you are
monitoring. When this option is selected, the VideoSecurity icon will
appear on the taskbar in the lower-right corner of your screen.
Whenever VideoSecurity detects a problem, it will run. You may also
run VideoSecurity by clicking the icon.

9. PowerDirector Pro
The PowerDirector Pro is available only for Deluxe/TVD models.
9.1 Introduction
Ever thought about directing your own movie? How about having all the
creative controls and being in charge of the entire editing and postproduction process? Well, today's computing technology has made all this
possible for anyone who has recording devices, capture devices, a
computer, and of course, the sensational new software application,
PowerDirector.
Admittedly, video editing software is not without its drawbacks. Since the
advent of computers and its incredible growth in usage and processing
speed power, video editing software applications have taken off to
astronomical heights. Yet, a great inherent limitation, such as requiring a
huge amount of disk space because of the raw video data it captures, still
remains. This is why many still choose to edit with analog devices.
What makes PowerDirector the megastar of its industry in one quick flash
is its ability to save precious producing time because of its Smart Video
Rendering Technology (SVRT). Say goodbye to raw video data, which is
usually captured in .AVI format, and say hello to plenty of hard drive space
with the MPEG and DV AVI formats. No additional compression nor
decompression is required when producing scenes with MPEG or DV AVI
formats that do not contain effects, which saves you huge amounts of time
compared to our competitors that compress and decompress the entire
movie!
40
ASUS V9950 Series User Guide
Additional SVRT features includes:
• altering video speeds
• detecting scenes
• capturing directly from DV camcorders in real-time or non real-time
• a disc wizard that creates and burns movie discs in a cinch!
• adding titles to clips
• adding audio streams to clips
• picture-in-pictures (adding video or images to an existing video clip)
• a huge collection of transitions, video and titles effects
• master audio files
• watermarks
