Video Network

The video network is used to transfer the camera picture from the video server PC to the video client PC(s). You have to run at least two instances of CamUniversal on two different PCs to use the video network. The first PC works as a video server and the second PC as a video client. All cameras running at the server PC could send their picture to all connected client PCs. All cameras on the client PC which are receiving their picture from a connected server PC are called RemoteCams. All running cameras on the server PC, no matter if they are WebCams, NetCams or RemoteCams can send their picture to a client PC and become through this way a RemoteCam!
CamUniversal could run the network server part and the network client part together in one instance. So it's possible to run CamUniversal on two PCs within a LAN, start on both PCs the network server and additionally the network client functionality and transfer from both PCs all connected cameras to each other.
