In its simplest form, the material recorded from a camera of security creates a log of activity, malicious or otherwise, for future reference. There are several recording devices that facilitate recording security video, including video recorders, portable media players, DVD recorders and computers. The connection procedure for the recording equipment safety is essentially the same for all visual recording equipment, such as tape recording process; a camera sends a signal to a receiver which records the visual data.


Connect a security camera on a computer requires a composite video cable, VGA computer monitor, video cable RCA yellow, a VGA box and a VGA to VGA cable. A video graphics array, or VGA converts analog video data in a digital format accessible from a computer. The VGA cable transmits the analog data converter to the computer VGA, and VGA graphics card computer manipulates data in readable form on your screen.

Insert one end of the yellow RCA cable to the output port video cameras. Insert the other end into the video input port VGA converter. Insert one end of the VGA cable to VGA converter box VGA. Insert the other end into the VGA port on the computer. Adjust the video quality with resolution settings on the converter box. Turn on the devices in the following order: first, the computer, secondly, the camera and finally, VGA converter box. You can use a video capture program such as Handicap to record streaming video camera.


Recording security camera images to a digital video recorder, or DVR, it resembles the method used for recording to a computer. Mount and connect the camera to the DVR via a USB cable or yellow RCA video cable. Insert one end of a yellow RCA video cable into the port “Video Out” (video output) of the DVR. Insert the other end of the USB cable into the “Video In” (video input) computer. You can also connect the DVR to the computer via the VGA to VGA cable. Turn on the camera, DVR and computer. Download the VLC video player LAN provider. The camera transmits video data to the DVR for recording and playback. It then transfers the video data to the computer for file storage and viewing on the media player VLC.

Portable media player

Portable audio players recorded video security in the same way as they do television programs: through a connection to the computer. Insert one end of the RCA video cable into the video out port of the camera. Insert the other end into the video input of a VGA converter. Insert one end of the VGA to VGA cable VGA converter. Insert the other end into the VGA computer input. Connect your portable media player to your computer using a USB cable or Bluetooth.

Put up a platform multimedia player, such as Windows Media Player, and go to the screen “Start” and select “Tasks.” Click “Sync” and then “Yes” to transmit the security video that appears on the screen comprador the portable media player. Click “Start Sync” to start recording images on the portable media player, and press “Stop” to end recording. Depending on the model of your portable media player, you have the option to store images in its internal memory chip, an SD card or mini SD card.


Although archaic in relation to advanced forms of media recording equipment, standard video player performs video recording function security capabilities. Run your camera and insert an RCA video port “Video Out” (video output). Connect the other end to “Video In” (video input) VCR. Connect a second cable RCA video port on the “Video Out” (video output) on the VCR.

Insert the other end of the second video RCA cable to port “Video In” (video input) of a television. Go to the menu screen TV. Insert a VHS tape in the VCR. Turn on the TV to display the camera view on your TV. Press the “Record” button on the VCR to start recording the video security screen.
