POS DVR Integration: Text Insertion

Text Insertion is a method of inserting or displaying text on the video display of the DVR. The text will be saved and time‐stamped together with the video. The text can be used to search for specific video clips. Lastly, the text can also be displayed during playback.


The following diagram illustrates how text may be inserted onto the video.

The DVR listens to incoming TCP/IP connections from other devices connected to the network. These devices may be a Point-Of-Sale terminal, an access control system or any application capable of sending data via TCP/IP.

Once the DVR receives data, the DVR authenticates the sender and validates the data. If valid, the text information is superimposed onto the video of the camera or cameras specified by the sender. Simultaneously, the text information is stored to disk with the video, and stored to a database for search purposes. Search may be performed on the DVR or remotely via a client software application.
