CamLAN

Version 1.2 for Windows ™ (95/98/NT/ME/2000/XP)
Release 05. September 2004

 

General Remarks

Start the CamLAN Server on the PC where you have connected the video device. If there is not found a valid video device, a message appears in the caption of the video window and you can't start the server functionality.
You need a valid Windows driver for your video device. After starting the server, the server waits of the connection of a CamLAN Client. If a client is connected, the server starts sending the video. Start the CamLAN Client on all PC's from which you want to see the video. They must be connected with the CamLAN Server through a network. This network could be a local network ( LAN ) or the Internet.

The video device must be able to capture uncompressed frames. This is done in general in a RGB video mode. If you have the choice, select the RGB 24 bit video mode.
