VGA RECORDER SAMPLE APPLICATIONS
Automated Conference or Meeting Presentation Recording
In this application, the Epiphan customer is automatically recording all presentations in a conference or meeting room without installing any client software. VGA Recorder creates video file conference proceedings available to attendees and remote viewers on a webserver or FTP server accessible via browser or media player over the internet.
Non-obtrusive Recording of Security Console or Central Station
In this application, the Epiphan customer is automatically recording all video surveillance output to the central security console. This Digital Video Recording(DVR) application is useful for incident reporting and investigations, adding an extra layer of business controls around security system monitoring. Without any software installed on the security system, VGA Recorder non-obtrusively records the display output of the operator console. In this case the VGA recorder is configured as a security DVR recorder to automatically store recorded video files on network storage systems without console operator intervention, or knowledge.

In this application, the Epiphan customer is recording the display output from a control room for a power station. This same Digital Video Recording(DVR) configuration can be used to record the display output from other industrial equipment displays for such requirements as incident reporting, and lot tracing for manufacturing. Epiphan's VGA Recorder can record days to weeks (depending on resolution) without interruption, as well as automatically transfer files to other servers. VGA Recorder can also apply a timestamp to all recorded output. All this can be done without modifying any of the software or manufacturing equipment - simply intercept the VGA/DVI or HDMI display signal.
