BJSurvey Setup

Updated: Jan 12

Deciding where and how to set up BJSurvey can initially be challenging. Following the guidelines below will make that task easier.


Where

Any location where you can watch the video that you are entering into BJSurvey is OK. However, using BJSurvey away from the "front-lines" significantly improves data entry speed (and accuracy).


How

The two most common setups are installing BJSurvey either

  1. on the same computer as your digital surveillance application or

  2. on a separate computer located next to it.

Same Computer


Requirements

  • Computer with dual-monitor capability

  • Sufficient hard drive capacity to store the videos (~1GB/h) (the retention period is adjustable)

Pros

  • Use just one keyboard to control the video playback and to enter the data into BJSurvey.

  • Use BJSurvey's Digital Video Recorder (DVR) function without the need for additional hardware.

  • Use the DVR at the highest possible video quality.

Cons

  • You must use BJSurvey's DVR. Since the DVR adds significant productivity benefits, this can hardly be considered a disadvantage.

Separate Computers


Requirements

Pros

  • Using the DVR is optional

Cons

  • Switching back and forth between two keyboards/mice to a) control video playback and b) enter data into BJSurvey.

  • Video Capture device is required to use the DVR.

  • Reduced video quality due to the conversion process when using the DVR.
