About this book
The First to Present 3D Technology as Applied to Commercial Programming for the ConsumerThis is the first book to provide an overview of the technologies, standards, and infrastructure required to support the rollout of commercial real-time 3 Dimension Television/3 Dimension Video (3DTV/3DV) services. It reviews the required standards and technologies that have emerged—or are just emerging—in support of such new services, with a focus on encoding mechanisms formats and the buildout of the transport infrastructure.While there is a lot of academic interest in various intrinsic aspects of 3DTV, service providers and consumers ultimately tend to take a system-level view. 3DTV stakeholders need to consider the overall architectural system-level view of what it will take to deploy an infrastructure that is able to reliably and cost-effectively deliver a commercial-grade quality bundle of multiple 3DTV content channels to paying customers with high expectations. This text, therefore, takes such a system-level view, revealing how to actually deploy the technology.Presented in a self-contained, tutorial fashion, the book begins with a review of 3DTV in the marketplace and the opportunities and challenges therein. Recent industry events related to 3D are also discussed. From there, the fundamental visual concepts supporting stereographic perception of 3DTV/3DV are explained, as are encoding approaches. Readers will understand frame mastering and compression for conventional stereo video (CSV) and more advanced methods such as video plus depth (V+D), multi-view video plus depth (MV+D), and layered depth video (LDV).Next, the elements of an end-to-end 3DTV system are covered from a satellite delivery perspective, with explanations of digital video broadcasting (DVB) and DVB-handheld. Transmission technologies are assessed for terrestrial and IPTV-based architecture; IPv6 is reviewed in detail. Finally, the book presents 3DTV/3DV standardization and related activities, which are critical to any type of broad deployment.System planners, the broadcast TV industry, satellite operators, Internet service providers, terrestrial telecommunication carriers, content developers, design engineers, venture capitalists, and students and professors are among those stakeholders in these services, and who will rely on this volume to discover the latest 3D advances, market opportunities, and competing technologies.

    I'm sorry, I wanted to like this, but it just sucks.

    1. Very cheap cables, thin copper, easily broken. I had to replace one set. When a bnc connector popped off one end after hitting a snag in the wall. Not Q-see's fault, but better cables would have helped as I didn't tug that hard to pull it off.2. DVR login/config with the remote control provided is TERRIBLE!!! There is a mouse, but I cannot use it because of the location of the DVR. Seriously, this remote is junk.3. Sharing the feeds online to friends and family works, but relies on apps they need to install or activex controls/plugins for browsers AND you need to setup users and permissions. Not a deal breaker, but these users get to see the entire admin GUI and full camera array with annoying "Not AUTHORIZED" messages everywhere instead of just a simplified interface containing the live feeds of a selected camera and that's it! Having to explain where to go and what to do in the interface to 75 year olds isn't fun.

    Inexpensive Camera System That Works Great@

    0 5/5 Jamie Ratliff - See all my reviews This review is from: Q-See QT534-4E4-5 4 Channel Full D1 Surveillance System with 4-700TVL Cameras and Pre-Installed 500GB Hard Drive (Electronics) Customer review from the Amazon Vine Program (What's this?) I have used multiple camera systems before, including top of the line consumer systems like Lorex, which can easily cost a thousand dollars more than the Q-See system here. The Q-See system is easy to setup, and includes a large poster like instruction sheet with step by step instructions for getting started. The directions are even in English! (I have seen some only in Chinese or something). I have used this camera system two ways. The first is a fixed mounted system that keeps an eye on our driveway and where the cars and trucks are parked. I have also used the system during a Paranormal investigation by taking with me and using a few of the Q-See cameras and a couple of older cameras from Lorex. I was happy with the system in both instances. The remote viewing option if great to have, and makes it easy to check up on things while you are gone. If you are looking for a camera system for your home or small business, this system is a good investment. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 10, 2014

    Great stand-alone CCTV solution

    I really like this unit! It is my second CCTV server. Old was was... older... and many fewer features.This isn't without some "quirks"... but I've got most of it working... at least the bits I need. I bought one without hard disk... no big deal... but they could give more help with what to buy. A big sata disc. But I think you want a 3-1/2" drive, if the holes for mounting it in the case are going to be "right". Muy wrong (physical) size was nothing a little duct tape couldn't fix. (Joke... Cable ties.)I added a simple LCD screen... from my "junk" pile. I supplied 4 very simple CCTV cameras. They supplied unit with a mouse!... and. pretty well immediately, I was up and running!Note: You don't HAVE to connect the device to a computer. It WILL run "standalone", and you can do configuration, monitoring, etc, with a directly connected monitor and mouse.The on screen menu takes a LITTLE getting used to, but not hard.

    0 4/5 Mike Hinkle - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Professional 4 Channel Network Standalone CCTV Surveillance DVR - iPhone, Android, and VGA Support, Real Time Video/Audio Recording, Network Video Monitor System browsing, PTZ Control (No HDD installed) (Electronics) Am pleased to report the DVR worked well with a Kingston 120 GB SSD drive in the 2.5" size. I bought a mechanical adapter (3.5" to 2.5" conversion), but I still had to drill 4 holes in the adapter to help it fit on the mounting holes in the DVR. Despite that, the disk drive interface cables connected with no problems, and the disk drive formatted and began operation with no problems. Excellent! Now I have a security DVR with no sensitive moving parts that works on 12 volts -- hmmm, where could I use that?... Haven't done a full review of the DVR functions yet (but everything I've tried so far worked OK), so I'm not posting a 5-star rating yet. May come back and revise upwards later after more experience with this unit. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 20, 2014

    Good System for the Money

    This is my first camera system. There is no shortage of camera system manufacturers out there, so I bought this one based on the Samsung reputation and the features I needed in the price range I was looking at. The only thing I needed that didn't come in the box was a BNC to RCA video-out adapter so I could connect the DVR to my receiver to put the images onto my TV. Got that at Radio Shack for a few dollars. Installing the system took me the better part of a day. All cams are outside and hung under the eaves of my house. I had to drill a hole big enough for the camera connectors to pass through and into the attic, then locate the connectors in the attic and connect the cable and run it to the DVR in my entertainment cabinet. To make this easier, I taped a straightened coat hanger to the connectors and then pushed everything through the hole from outside. The coat hanger was easy to spot with a flashlight once in the attic.

    Good System, Horrible Manual

    I bought this as a supplement to my 4 camera Lorex system instead of buying a new 8 camera system. One of the selling points was the in-store ad says you can view remotely via PC or Mac. Well, the actual product box doesn't say that, and its not yet compatible with Mac. Not a huge deal, but Mac capability would be nice. According to Samsung's web site, it's in the works.Overall it provides much more functionality than my Lorex system, but it is not easy to setup, especially if this is your first time setting up a home system. Having set one up before (the Lorex) was a big help, but Samsung's documentation is HORRIBLE. It only tells you what each button or menu item does, but does not explain in detail the features and how to actually configure it. I only needed an hour or two to get it set up, but it was a couple more days to really learn all that it could do and how to do it. I can now say that I really like the system, much more than the Lorex.Best features... 4/5 Philip S.

    Major unpatched security vulnerability in Samsung SDE cameras

    0 1/5 R H (Palo Alto, CA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Samsung SDE-3004N 4 Channel DVR Security System with 500 GB HDD (Electronics) As with the rest of the Samsung SDE-x000 product line, as of 11/29/13, there appears to be a major security vulnerability in this camera. The current version allows anyone to modify your DVR settings and see the username/passwords of all the users configured in the system if publicly exposed on the Internet. It has not been patched by Samsung even 3 months after the issue was reported on security mailing lists.See [...]The actual code to exploit this loophole is included in the posting.If you have already bought it, you can verify for yourself if you see this problem by using the Python code included. Otherwise, I would complain to Samsung Support and avoid purchasing this system until it can be patched in a firmware upgrade. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 29, 2013

I was told those dates were just system default dates but their customer service was excellent and they quickly exchange it for another one. After reviewing the device log on the second one it too has the 2009 dates so I am taking their word that they are default dates when the unit is setup.

My best suggestion is to watch Youtube videos and do some online research to make sure you are comfortable with "port forwarding" on your network.

    My impressions about this system

    First you get what you pay for...... I install cameras so i know whats out there.The DVR is pretty decent, motion detection settings - you can "blank out" a high traffic area to stop constant recording - like cars on the street or a flag waving. apparently you can also hook it up to recieve photos and emails of camera triggers there are two outputs - PC and coax so you can hook up to your monitor and your TV's aux input if desired. you can control PTZ cameras as wellThe camera Power supply is Under rated once you load it down to its max capacity the cameras start flickering and switching between day.night. a stronger Amp power supply is needed to resolve thisthe cameras themselves are nice and small ( kinda cheesy mounting bracketry) and their image quality is pretty darn good ( considering the price) I would have to say that the 700 TVL claim is not realistic - more on the order 600 TVL, the Depth of resolution is ok at a distance but improves... 4/5 Steven Miller - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Things to know. There is no hard drive. You must purchase one - thus the price is not so low. The manual is hard to follow due to poor English. The user ID is case sensitive. It will make logging in from the network impossible unless you spell the user name correctly. Mine arrived with a bad Sata drive data cable. Mine also would trigger all cameras to record, that were set to record, if motion was detected at any camera, even if that camera was not set to record. My Iphone dropped the camera if I changed the camera name. Don't know how to fix that yet. Parts of the playback system did not work well using the direct network connection. I had to trim back some of the rubber around the electric eye in order to get the camera to stay in normal color mode (not IR mode) when there was enough light. I have to leave the DVR off for as much as 20 min if I power down, before it will recognize the drive after power up. This unit is glitchy at best. Once up and running, leave it alone and it... 3/5 Martha E. - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Perfect, does what it's supposed to.

    I was leary about the price, but my IP camera server died and I needed a low cost replacement. I ordered a 500gb sata drive from Amazon for $47 to go with this.

    Nice Economical DVR but not secure for remote viewing

    0 4/5 G Man (Williamsville, NY USA) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Vonnic DVR-C1104SEFD Standalone DVR (Black) (Electronics) For the price, you can't beat this DVR. It works very well and has many nice features. Just add a low cost SATA drive and you have yourself a nice economical video surveillance DVR.If you want to connect your DVR to internet for remote viewing, be very careful were you place your cameras! The DVR comes with three default user accounts that cannot be deleted. I would imagine that the factory has full access to these default accounts. Another flaw is the password length is very weak. Very easy for a hacker to crack, no matter what what combination password you use.Keeping those points in mind, just don't point your cameras at anything you don't want the general public to see and you could still use the remote viewing option safely; or just keep the DVR off the Web and use it for local viewing only. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 18, 2013

    Good product - once I figured it out.

    This product does a great job, but it took me an hour to figure it out. As another person has said, the manual is in "Chinglish", much (not all) of which is understandable when you think about what they were trying to translate. However, the manual mostly is a collection of screen prints and a brief explanation of what the screen says, or helpful hints like "Click the stop button to stop".Besides network control, there are 3 ways to interact with this unit: console controls, remote control, or the included mouse. I found that the mouse was the easiest and only full-function choice, the others not so much. After plugging the unit in, I spent about an hour clicking through the different screens and options learning how this unit works. For the longest time, I couldn't get the unit to either record or play. Here is what I've learned:1. Recording: I used the option "Record Mode", setting it to "manual". Turns out it's not just an option, but also means to... 4/5 V. Campbell - See all my reviews, January 25, 2014

    Does what I need to do.

    I have bought another one of these because it works well for my purposes. But before you go with this product read below:PROS:1. QQDVR Camera server (HYQQDvr_EN7.1.6.3.exe on CD)(runs on PC that has cameras connected) has nice motion detection recording or full time recording settings and scheduling. Nice video file organization (very obvious when a video clip was recorded and by what camera). Couple that with a FTP server and you'll have nice instant access to recorded video clips externally over the internet.2. Camera client (Client_Setup6.3.exe on CD)(runs on all other PCs and speaks to server to get real time camera picture) easy to use and setup. Allows you to see whats going on at home real time, when you are away. Just open up ports 9881 and 9880 on your home firewall and point the client to your home IP address.CONS:1.

    Complete and utter disappointment

    I have tried to install this on 3 different laptops (Dell, HP and ACer) ranging with Windows XP to 7....all USB 2.0 ports and a desktop Vista OS..no luck. The CD that supposedly has the drivers and programs on it - I just can't explain it. When you open the disc and you view the main folder, it shows the user manual, FAQs, etc...plus some other programs. The one I'm concerned with is the all important program that makes it do what it is supposed to do. However, when I try to run those app files, it says file/path unknown! Yet when you look at the folder properties and file properties, it clearly states there are KBs of information there. So it's there but not there?! I tried Google and the most viable answer was to swap out one of their original files for a different one which others have took their time to locate! It seems like you would have to be somewhat of a programmer to make THEIR product work. WHAT?!

    It's actually pretty awesome, once you get it all setup.

    I'll begin my review by saying, this unit is worth the money, affordable and does a great job with nice features, but it can be complicated to set up, so it'll require a little effort and patience, but well worth it!It does what you might expect, but the instructions can require a masters degree in technology to understand at times. The manual is also not current with the actual menu. Thank goodness I am tech savvy. I had some problems right out of the box, but it does work like expected.I tried online chat support several times only to get the message; "department closed". But support by email was very responsive and helpful.
