Take a Broader View with Panoramic Live Video
Kinatomic Technology announced the release of MergeCam, a software tool that combines live video into a panoramic view.
The primary advantages of MergeCam are increased situational awareness with the entire scene visible in a single frame, rather than multiple disjoint views or with a moving narrow view camera. Secondly, the panoramic system provides continual coverage of an area with reduced blind spots. There is also less operator intervention when compared to pan and tilt camera. Installations will also be cheaper, with less cameras required for coverage when compared to using multiple fixed cameras. This makes the system suitable for a wide range of safety, security, entertainment and surveying applications.
Windows compatible (XP SP2 or later)
Input sources: IP camera (MJPEG encoded), USB cameras (UVC)
Hardware accelerated drawing using OpenGL
Outputs: Windows capture source (using Directshow filter) or (pro only) saved video to an MP4 file with H264 compression
