CCTV Sant'Antonio Garage
CCTV files from the garage across the street from the cottage. These files are movies made from screen capturing playback of CCTV flicks. The CCTV flicks are proprietary and require a proprietary program for viewing that was typically provided on the CCTV discs found in the archives. The CCTV flicks are not movies. They are slide shows of images recorded by the CCTV cameras in the garage. The cameras are motion / light activated and camera sensitivity is rather low, designed to capture cars entering and exiting the parking garage. The cameras themselves do not record for long periods even if there is car activity. So the slideshows often have gaps, sometimes as small as quarter of a second, but often for much longer. Finally, the cameras are also subject to high flare and image resolution is also low and noisy particularly at night.
There are at least 15 cameras at the garage, but we have only found CCTV footage for cameras 7, 11 and 15. CCTV sequences are from 00:00 AM November 1st to 22:00 November 2nd, with time gaps in camera 7.
Camera 15 covers exiting traffic at the top deck. It is positioned over the eastern stairwell and covers the eastern half of he top deck.
Camera 11 covers exiting traffic at the middle deck. It is positioned over the garage's east exit and captures a bit of traffic on via dell Pergola, as well as tiny bits of traffic exiting from the lower and top decks of the garage.
Camera 7 covers entering traffic at the garage's middle deck. It is positioned just inside the garage's west entrance and looks northwestward. It captures traffic on via della Pergola, and, on rare occasion, captures traffic entering and exiting the cottage driveway which is just across the street and just outside the camera's frame (to the right). The driveway ramp sinks below the via dell Pergola. Photos will soon be provided to clarify these locations. Camera 7 footage is complete for November 1st, but for November 2nd, there is only footage from 06:00 to roughly 14:30.
All camera sequences by chronology
These movies are playbacks of CCTV from cameras 7, 11 and 15, played chronologically, irrespective of camera. Therefore the sequences jump from one camera to the other. They are captured at the default resolution and size of the proprietary playback program.
NOTE: The controls bar for the Wiki video player unfortunately hides the captured timestamps of the CCTV footage (shown as a blue horizontal bar at the bottom of the movie). Sometimes moving the mouse outside the movie frame will 'disappear' the controls bar and reveal the timestamp, but not always. We recommend to right-click on the link, download the file and use a player that shows the full frame of the movie, including the time stamp.
