The core of the system is a 2.6GHz, P4 PC running iCatcher on Windows 2000. The video cameras are fed to a Euresys Junior 4 capture card in the PC and the IP cameras are fed via the network. Pictures are uploaded to the web site when there has been movement. The upload rate depends on the activity and time of day. In addition, the IP cameras are sometimes used to upload pictures on a timed basis.
Video is captured directly, Axis video servers or, for the Panasonic IP camera, using iCatcher v5. In the case of the Axis servers, VLC player and Axis Camera Explorer are used. All boxes are fed by regulated 12V supplies and some have additional control available. Exterior pictures are obtained using an Axis 214 PTZ camera and various CCTV cameras, linked to the PC, or an Axis video server.
