Motion Optimized Recording (MORe) Examined

By: John Honovich, Published on Nov 21, 2009

In 2009, TimeSight introduced Motion Optimized Recording [link no longer available], a feature designed to simultaneously reduce storage costs while eliminating the risk of gaps in evidence from motion based recording.

TimeSight defines MORe as:

"A system recognizes when there is motion, and when there is not. However, in times of perceived non-motion recording is not stopped; rather, the recording continues but using a storage-optimized profile."

As an example of MORe's practical value, TimeSight cites liability claims from slip and fall accidents. Review TimeSight's MORe whitepaper [link no longer available] that includes a useful chart on statute of limitations for filing personal injury claims (ranges from 1 to 6 years with 2 years being the most common).

Common Traditional Feature, Issues with IP Cameras

Increasing image quality when motion is detected is a common traditional DVR feature. It is also relatively easy to implement when the encoder card is integrated into the recorder. However, with IP cameras, since the camera encodes the video independently of the recorder, this is difficult to do. As such, VMS software generally does not offer this feature. TimeSight can do this because it can transcode/re-encode all video it receives (from IP or analog cameras).

Limits on Long Term Storage Usefulness

As stated in TimeSight's whitepaper, the fear of personal liability claims are a niche problem. Important for those that face it (retailers, for instance) but rarely a major concern to most video surveillance users.
