Network Camera Recorder


Because sounds can be recorded together with images, the ambience of a store can be captured more accurately to help you plan effective marketing strategies. Images from up to 10 cameras can be recorded. Images can also by searched quickly using a keyword or recording date/time.


Record & Play Images with Audio

The program lets you use a PC at a distant location for recording and playing back images with voices captured by the BB-HCM311A, BB-HCM331A, BB-HCM371A and BB-HCM381A network cameras connected to the LAN or Internet. With the recording of both image and sound, you can "feel" the ambience that cannot be expressed by images alone. The program permits simultaneous recording of images captured by multiple network cameras.1, 2

Motion Detection Recording and Timer Recording

The program is equipped with a motion detection recording function3 which activates recording only when people or other moving objects are detected and a timer recording function which starts and stops recording at specified times. These two functions can be combined so that the motion detection recording function is activated during a specified time period. In addition, the timer recording function allows up to ten settings for each camera, so different recording start and stop schedules can be set for weekdays and weekends.

Recorded Image Search and Image Conversion Functions

Recorded images can be searched using conditions such as a preset keyword, recording type, timer recording, and motion-activated recording. Furthermore, all or part of the retrieved image data can be converted to still image data in the format. The converted images can be viewed by using standard image-viewing applications.

Recording Capacity Limit

The recording capacity limit function lets you set the maximum amount of data to be recorded on the hard disk of the PC for each camera. When the set maximum amount is reached, old recorded data is overwritten by new data, thus allowing the hard disk to be used more effectively.

  1. Images and voices captured by the BB-HCM311A, HCM331A, HCM371A and HCM381A camera can be recorded while two-way communication is carried out between the BB-HCM311A, HCM331A, HCM371A and HCM381A camera and the PC. When images with voices are recorded, the frame rate may decrease in some cases.
  2. Use of the program may cause voice transmission to be interrupted or moving images to stop in some cases, depending on the PC's performance and the network environment.
  3. The detection sensitivity level of the motion-activated recording function varies depending on the camera resolution, image quality setting, subject condition, network conditions and other factors.
