The software has been created as general application for security cross platforms functioning all together with wireless and wired IP webcams, TV-boards, capture boards, power-line, and USB webcams. It has web interface with the similar appearance and functionality on the local and distant workstations. Customers see MPEG coded picture and have complete control of the program through network that security computer can be operated with no monitor, keyboard, and mouse attached. Program`s modular structure significantly boosts reliability because all parts operate as independent software. If one module freezes, other units go on working. For instance if the `record` unit freezes, `watchdog` starts over it instantly that viewers don`t notice anything because they are watching video via a `playback` unit. The software does `repeated` recording that the `hard drive full` situation never occurs. The recording can be constant or it can be started by activity, human face detection, or by schedule. The software has pre-alarm and post-alarm recording. Playing back recorded video is pretty easy and performs on the surveillance computer as well as on apart workstation using Web interface. The software makes synchronized video playback for event analysis from many cameras concurrently. Also recorded information can be searched by date, time or by face detected. All recorded information can be encrypted and password protected.
