Recording mirror and backup camera

Anybody figures the details of this out.
I kind of figure that the cameras are on all the time and there is a video multiplexer somewhere that just picks the input for the monitor.

I don't know anything about the type of signal nor what sort of device might be an affordable 4 channel video recorder. 4th channel would be the dash camera.

If anybody's worked out the details I'd appreciate some leads.

I don't think the cameras are on all the time, just when in use.

Maybe you can set it up to record from all of them on multiple recorders, but it would definatly be simpler to just use 4 dash cams. They are coming down in price every day it seems.

Just my 2 cents.

Cruizer,
Not knowing what my rig has for camera signaling, rather than tear into the dash, I decided to investigate the exterior.camera.video -to- HDMI converter that came with my rig. This converter (I never use it) is in the same cabinet as my DirecTV and BluRay player. Then up top is a 4-channel HDMI switcher...allowing me so send a HDMI signals to up to 4 TVs.



So all the above is just a preface to what I found: RCA video/audio connections on the rear of this converter box. So I'll assume that all cameras (rear, and left- and right- mirrors) are also of old-technology signaling: Analog video; 480i (i.e., not high def). One further assumption: These cameras have a separate connection to power them (12vdc) and their output is raw, standard definition video riding over coax to my dash. I'm aware that some cameras get their DC power over the same coax that also carries the video signal. This latter point needs to be considered if you are looking for a 4-channel DVR. The final point: Finding an analog-input DVR in today's new-equipment market (home security as an example) could be a challenge. Most have moved to digital and accommodate high-def signaling (720 or 1080).


So lots of things here remain undefined. Sorry that I can't offer any "real" facts.

That may not be a solution but it is a good analysis and includes key terms that will aid in learning about components.

Can you get it on a PC as a MP4/AVI/MKV etc.
Install VLC media player.
It has a red "record" button.
Hit record at the start of the segment and stop at the end.
VLC will save it in your Video directory as I recall.

There are much more sophisticated techniques but I've not tried any of them.

You can try a video editor I used twice. To tell you the truth I don't use such software often maybe once a year or even two, so the program I used is simple - movavi.
