Description: The program has been designed as common program for security hybrid platforms running simultaneously with wireless and wired Internet webcams, TV-cards, capture cards, power-line, and USB webcams. It has web interface with the equal look and functionality on the local and apart computers. Users view MPEG coded picture and have full management of the software through network that surveillance computer can be run without screen, keyboard, and mouse connected. Program`s modular structure significantly increases reliability because all units work as independent software. If one part stops working, other modules keep on working. For instance if the `record` component fails, `watchdog` starts again it immediately that viewers don`t notice anything because they are watching picture using a `playback` module. The program does `repeated` recording that the `hard drive full` situation never appears. The recording can be constant or it can be activated by motion, human face detection, or by timetable. The program has pre-alarm and post-alarm recording. Playing back recorded video is pretty easy and performs on the surveillance computer as well as on distant server using Web interface. The program performs synchronized video playback for event analysis from multiple webcams simultaneously. Also recorded files can be searched by date, time or by face detected. All recorded data can be encrypted and password protected.
