RayCam - Laboratory Camera Viewer
Submitted by Tomasz Wyderka on Wed, 10/10/2012 - 11:09
RayCam is a viewer for network cameras, useful especially in laboratory. It can measure distance on the screen and translate it to real environment units. User can also mark interesting points on the screen.
RayCam is showing video content from network cameras. It was tested with AXIS cameras so far, but it should work with most cameras on the market. It utilizes well know Mplayer application, so many formats are supported.
- Crosshairs - marking/tracing points on the screen
- Zooming - video areas
- Distance measuring - in pixels and user defined units
- Snapshots - taking image snap shoots of current display
- Recording - and saving to AVI files
