The picture could be colored, grayscale, black & white, with time, date or text output, with an overly logo image, with transparency or not. The picture filename could be built from a custom selected text, the current time, the current date and/or a number!
Standard Video Record
CamPermanent uses the DirectShow component of DirectX for the standard video recording. So you could use all in your system installed video and audio codecs and all installed video and audio devices for the video recording.
Additional CamPermanent supports a timestamp into the video. This timestamp could be the current time/date a usertext and additional a logo bitmap.
This standard video recording generates AVI video files in contrast to the permanent video recording which generates video files in a proprietary format! But these videos could also be converted into AVI.
Introduction to DirectShow
Microsoft® DirectShow® is an architecture for streaming media on the Microsoft Windows® platform. DirectShow provides for high-quality capture and playback of multimedia streams. It supports a wide variety of formats, including Advanced Systems Format (ASF), Motion Picture Experts Group (MPEG), Audio-Video Interleaved (AVI), MPEG Audio Layer-3 (MP3), and WAV sound files. It supports capture from digital and analog devices based on the Windows Driver Model (WDM) or Video for Windows. DirectShow is integrated with other DirectX technologies. It automatically detects and uses video and audio acceleration hardware when available, but also supports systems without acceleration hardware.
The video network is used to transfer the camera picture from all video client PCs to the video server and backwards. You have to run at least two instances of CamPermanent (CamLAN or CamUniversal) on two PCs to use the video network.
With the integrated AVI Creator you can generate videos from single images. For example you can capture single images from your camera every 30sec. through the whole day and create a video from all images showing the day in fast motion. Or you can observe the sky, capture an image every minute and generate a video showing the movement of the clouds!
With the integrated Webserver all camera videos are accessible through a direct HTTP request. So you could very easily build a webpage where all your camera videos are viewable from the Internet or your home/company LAN ( Live Cam ). Additional the webserver enables the possibility to control the program from remote. You could start/stop the camera preview, the motion detector, the scheduler, the video recording and capture a picture. For each camera separately! Additional you could start all programs which are installed on your system from remote through the webserver.
With the integrated Media Viewer you can view all captured pictures and AVI videos. The permanent recorded videos are viewable with the CamPlayer.
