How do you increase the frames-per-second on CCTV?

  gipoid 22:28 25 Apr 2008

I currently have a wireless CCTV camera that captures video that I access wirelessly using Remote Desktop. It currently only records at between 1 & 2 fps. My question is how do I increase the fps? More RAM, not to access via Remote Desktop, not to have a wireless connection? Replace the DVR Card, (which apparently can handle 25fps)?
Any help would be most helpful.

Reduce picture size

Is that the only way?
Doesn't reducing the picture size reduce the quality and therefore not really useful if you can't recognise anyone/anything?

your onboard graphics is not good you need a agp card

I’m confused. If I put an AGP card in the PC, which captures the video, then why would it speed up the fps? I currently access this PC via Remote Desktop so it doesn’t even use the onboard graphics anyway. If you are talking about the PC which I use to Remote Desktop the CCTV PC then that can’t be it because I already have an AGP in there.

If you are not connected direct to the computer that uses the camera, then you are not going to improve much on what you got
