3D Scope II - Video Recording Feature
How to set the video recording for auditing
Table of Contents
Customers are recommended to record videos including data (e.g. count data) to validate the accuracy of the sensor. It is an easier solution than validating live on site, due to the large amount of statistically relevant information produced in real time. The 3DScope II models have additional memory and can store this video data locally. After being recorded, the data can be automatically sent to a FTP server, or manually downloaded from the user interface.
In addition to the camera image, this video recording also includes the relevant setup, counting, zone monitoring and tracking data. The "APS Video Player" (Windows version only) can be used to view these recordings. It can export plain video files with selected overlays (to be played with standard video tools) for the end customer.
