‘ A major milestone in Bigfoot research was achieved this morning at 7:10 am. The new EyeGotcha(trademark) Video Surveillance system we have been developing for the last six months has been successfully tested in a laboratory environment under controlled conditions. The new Eyegotcha(trademark) video surveillance system will revolutionize the way researchers collect video evidence from remote locations. This new system will allow researchers to record both video and audio upon activation of a (PIR) passive infrared sensor. Once the system is activated by motion/heat source like a person or animal, it will record the video and audio to a miniature hard drive where a time/date stamp will be added to each video for documentation purposes.
The Eyegotcha(trademark) system will record up to 140 hours of MPEG4 video and audio. This mass digital storage and on-board power management system will allow the EyeGotcha to remain in the remote location for up to a year or more unattended. A color display will allow the operator to view the results while in the field or the operator can download the digital files to a laptop or handheld device like a portable USB drive. No longer will researchers be limited by 8mm or digital recording tapes that only hold 2 hours of video. The recorder and circuitry will be mounted in a small waterproof case that can be buried underground for concealment purposes. The external camera assembly, called the “VIPER”(trademark) will incorporate the video camera, PIR sensor, infrared illumination and microphone. This assembly was designed to reduce and even eliminate the ultrasonic sounds emanating from the camera and associated electronics. The goal is produce the world’s first digital video recording system that addresses the problems associated with today’s game cameras and other remote video recording devices. Virginia Bigfoot Research.Org was the first to realize that most game cameras and camcorders produce ultrasonic sounds that some animals can hear. It is our hope that this new system will not be detected by animals once it is deployed, minimizing the presence of the camera system and allowing for surreptitious recording of animals and hopefully the Bigfoot creatures.
Today’s testing is a major step towards the completion of the final design and we hope to have the final product ready for sale by September. I would like to stress that many years of field research has contributed to the design of this camera system.
We will post updates on the final development of the EyeGotcha(trademark) video surveillance system once they are completed.
