Eddy the Man

Posted by Sally

So we finally got the peepcast working! It was kind of touch and go there for a while because the original plan to simultaneously upload the peepcast and download high quality images using DLink cameras didn’t work. It was a mad scramble to try and come up with a workable fix so what we ended up doing was using webcams for the peepcast and installing surveillance cameras just underneath the webcams to capture a similar looking image to a device known as a Digital Video Recorder (DVR). Stepping into the breach to hook us up with the surveillance equipment was Eddy Stevens at Security Stores in Concord, Ontario.

Eddy was awesome and basically dropped everything to source the cameras, DVRs and motion control devices that lets us record when the action is happening. Technically speaking, we can record all of Hal’s movements for the next two weeks and never even change the drive (size of a small book).

Eddy is a total pro. His expertise has been used on the sets of reality based TV shows such as Global’s “The Office Temps” and Debbie Travis’ “From the Ground Up”. He’s been obsessed with electronics since he was an 11 year old bumming around his dad’s basement workroom. In 1999 Eddy’s company got into the Guiness Book of Record for creating the “smallest video transmitter in the world”.

Well, we didn’t use the smallest camera for this production but we certainly used Eddy’s experience. If you ever need anything in the surveillance camera vein, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend these guys!

A digital image may be created directly from a physical scene by a camera or similar devices. Alternatively, it may be obtained from another image in an analog medium, such as photographs, photographic film, or printed paper, by an image scanner or similar device. Many technical images such as those acquired with tomographic equipment, side-scan sonar, or radio telescopes are actually obtained by complex processing of non-image data.business icons
