The Blue Iris Professional Surveillance Software for Windows CD-ROM from Foscam allows you to view and record video with up to 64 IP, web, or DVR/CCTV-based cameras simultaneously, and is compatible with the vast majority of IP camera and DVR brands, as well as video servers. Turn your existing Windows PC into a full-featured professional video surveillance system. The software takes advantage of H.264 video compression, allowing you to save hard drive space and reduce bandwidth consumption.
Videos can be captured in MPEG, Windows Media (WMV), or MP2TS format, while still images may be captured as JPEGs or MJPEGs. The efficient Blue Iris DVR file format allows time-slip viewing. Benefit from continuous loop recording, scheduled recording, and advanced motion/audio detection recording with the ability to send alerts by email, instant message, text message, phone call (with automatic redial), loudspeaker, or external program/script. Plus, DirectX integration provides smooth digital scaling, and DirectShow integration offers optimal capture performance. The built-in web server enables web-casting of all cameras simultaneously with digital zoom and pan/tilt capability. The program code is multi-threaded, optimized and rigorously tested to produce the best possible performance.
You can overlay the current date/time, a logo, text, or alpha-blended graphics onto your video. Additionally, if you are able to stream audio from your camera into Blue Iris, that sound may be recorded, web-cast, and used for triggering alerts. Use a timer to determine when the system is armed. Run Blue Iris as a Windows service so that only you have control over its operation on a shared PC. All passwords are encrypted for security. Take advantage of step-by-step setup instructions and full technical support by email, as well.
