Introduction
Chapter 1 Introduction
The GV-Video Server allows the conversion of any analog camera into a fully functional IP
camera. It streams the real-time digital video over the Internet in the same way that current
IP cameras do. With the GV-Video Server attached to analog cameras, you can see
camera images through a web browser anytime and anywhere. And with the GV-Video
Server connected to the GV-System, your existing surveillance system can be upgraded
and networked into a new IP surveillance system.
