One of our clients asked us to develop a software to monitor 6 cams at the same time and to interface with Labview.
We have therefore developed an ad hoc solution that manages the Prosilica and Basler cameras and allows the simultaneous display of 6 cams.
The hardware structure of the server that manages our program is as follows:
6 x processor (1 per cam)
6 x network card (1 per cam)
6 x ssd (1 per cam)
With this hardware structure we were able to guarantee the acquisition with the maximum framerate (about 30 frames per second) without any lost frame.
In this program you can configure up to 6 cams via IP address.
The program integrates with Labview and you can send to Labview a series of commands, editable to program, on Start and Stop recording events. The Start and Stop buttons allow you to start and end the recording respectively.
You can also save all the previews on the rooms at any time via the Save images button. The same are saved in a folder defined by the user.
We added the possibility of “cropping” (crop) the affected area for each cam.
By double clicking on any of the preview you can make the crop of the area.
