What? We’re doing VHS quality comparisons? Nope. This was something amusing that happened at work where there sits an ancient pro video tape player. Well, where sat an ancient tape player. 11:40something last night gravity and 19 years of sitting in the same spot decided to combine to send the tape player on a little journey.
We’ve looked at the other cams, there was nothing active other than this at that time, so either a ninja snuck in so slowly that they were not seen, or 19 years of a 70 pound pro videotape machine decided to throw itself toward the ground.
The temp wiring I have in place for the Amcrest POE camera just happened to get snagged as it had to snake up the corner of a cabinet, and the camera managed to take being yanked off the wall and bonked into a cabinet and still record everything to a remote FTP site.
So if you’re bored and want to watch an IP camera fall, that’s what I’ve been cleaning up today (along with dealing with a weird Comcast issue)
In case you’re forgetting 32fps/ps is gravity
