8Jan16 | CCTV TVL | SgMotorshow2016

New video updated in the Singapore car show post  

Watch the teaser video for Singapore MotorShow 2016.


Here’s my research notes for today…

What is TVL in CCTV camera?

TVL is the measure of the analog camera’s horizontal resolution.

In a Digital Camera. The resolution is the amount of detail that the camera can capture, and it is measured in the number of dots forming the image (aka pixels / megapixels / MP). The more pixels a camera has, the more detail it can capture and the larger pictures can be without becoming blurry.

In an Analog Camera. The resolution is the amount of detail that the camera can capture, and it is measured in the number of horizontal lines forming the image (aka TVL – TV Lines). The more TVL the analog camera has, the more detail it can capture and the larger pictures can be without becoming blurry.

Are Advertising Brochures Copyrighted?

I have been saving advertising brochures online for my reference, but is it legal? Am I infringing copyright law? I found this article that says…

. For most works created since 1978, the copyright lasts for 70 years after the death of the creator.
. The existence of unoriginal content in the advertising brochure does not negate the copyright protection on all other original material in the brochure.
. If an advertising brochure is created by a person under contract, rather than employment, then the copyright remains with the creator of the brochure, unless she expressly agrees in writing that the brochure is a work for hire.


In short, and from my limited understanding of the law, the owner of the brochure will print a copyright label somewhere if the material is NOT allowed to be reproduced. However, the images used in the brochure may be an issue, especially if they are rights-purchased from stock library.

5Jan16 | CNY 2016 | Movi | Netatmo Presence

Netatmo Presence Outdoor Security Camera

A single outdoor security camera that comes with more than a simple motion detector.
– detects people, animals and vehicles.
– includes built-in floodlight to illuminate people.
– at night, it uses infrared light.
– alerts you based on what it sees.
– you can set it to alert you when it sees a person, and not an animal or vehicle.
– read more specifications here…
– available in the third quarter of 2016.
– price not announced yet.

Downside: No Face Recognition like the Netatmo Welcome.


Shooting a multi camera video with just one camera

  1. Shoot wide shot with a 4K camera
  2. Edit and crop sections to 1080p.
  3. Use Movi camera and iPhone app.

This is what I have always wanted. One man, multi-cam.

Rest the rest here…

The best part is the zoom can follow the subject with face detection.

Movi is the new pocket-sized live event video camera and companion iOS app that lets you edit while you film. Now you can share live events in real time with unprecedented production value.  It’s like having a multi-camera production studio in your pocket. And for a limited time it’s only $199 (regularly priced at $399). ~

Available in April 2016.  Watch how MOVI works
