I was asked how would one be able to record PC screen activity to a standalone DVR (to sync it with CCTV cameras).
2 different solutions came to my mind:
- A software installed on the PC makes the PC to pretend to be an IP camera, streaming desktop activity over the network to a DVR
- There is a splitter cable attached to the PC's VGA or DVI ouput port. One fork would go to monitor and the other to DVR
Unfortunately, googling for any of these solutions was a dead end for me: I couldn't find any software which would turn a PC's desktop to an IP camera feed nor any DVR which would accept DVI or VGA input.
Does such software exist? Or perhaps does a DVR with a VGA or DVI input exist? Or is there some third way to do this?
