|The easiest to use full
featured WebCam tool to view your WebCam(s) or whatever
video device you have installed (not just webcams) on
your PC. A complete WebCam program designed with a
intuitive user interface that makes AvaCam easy to use.
AvaCam is a program that will allow you to view the images taken by any of your video devices. Should you have a webcam or any video capture device connected to your computer, this program will allow you not only to view what that device is capturing live, but also to record and save videos or pictures.
AvaCam is able to capture pictures at any interval (time-lapse), or whenever it detects motion. There is an jpg-to-avi (bmp-to-avi) converter included to make video's from your snapshots! The motion dectect feature makes it ideal to use as a surveillance system. You can also take snapshots manually, either one by one or using the burst mode, which will take multiple photos in a quick sequence.
This program can save videos as .AVI files, using any compression method. AvaCam has a built-in Viewer that can be used to select the pictures you would like to edit, launching your preferred graphics editor.
You can configure several settings in order to adjust the final quality of the video or the snapshot to meet your needs. These settings include video resolution, image mirror, image flip, low light, brightness, contrast, gamma, and hue. The program is even capable of performing face tracking. AvaCam is free for non-commercial use.
Automatically save pictures on any interval, motion detection, burst mode, view, print, copy and edit your snapshots and view the video full screen! Resize the video source to any size you want (also full screen).
Possible to save images using motion detection! Record video and save them as AVI-files (using any compression available) to your hard disk.
Remote Monitoring possible via LAN, Internet, wherever
Setup your video device with all available features your device has. And much more, and yes, it's still easy to use!
AvaCam can be used with more the one video device! Make a hardcopy of your favourite snapshot including print preview and printer settings.
