ONVIF-based, profile S ready*. Compatible with any NVR/VMS which supports ONVIF standard
Multiple desktops (monitors) supported
DeskCamera captures and streams multiple computer desktops simultaneously.
Multiple webcams supported
Along with a PC-embedded webcam, DeskCamera supports USB-connected webcams. It allows one to connect many webcams to the same DeskCamera and stream them simultaneously.
Audio (Microphone) supported
Any Microphone which available in the system could be configured to use with any Video input. There is also an option to configure Windows Default Microphone for using. DeskCamera produces audio feed along with video. Audio is provided in G.711 (PCMU) encoding format
Screen rotation supported
DeskCamera can automatically rotate output video stream. There are several rotation modes:
- Auto – Default mode. In this mode DeskCamera will transform Portrait oriented screens to Landscape oriented video stream. The same way how most of hardware ONVIF encoders do. Landscape screens will be streamed without a change.
- None. No rotation changes in output stream. Portrait screens are streamed as Portrait video stream, Landscape screens are streamed as Landscape video stream.
- R90. Rotate output stream by 90 degree to the right.
- L90. Rotate output stream by 90 degree to the left.
- FlipH. Flip the output stream horizontally
- FlipV. Flip the output stream vertically
Multiple Channels mode
This mode forces DeskCamera to produce one virtual ONVIF IP Camera with multiple video channels – one channel for each video input (screen or webcam). (Example - if there are 2 monitors connected and 1 webcam, the DeskCamera will appear as 1 ONVIF device with 3 video outputs/channels.)
Multiple Cameras mode
This mode allows one to create a new virtual ONVIF IP Camera for each video input. This mode could be useful if NVR/VMS does not support ONVIF multichannel devices. In this case, DeskCamera will produce a new dedicated IP camera for each video input. All cameras will share the same IP address, but will have a different port. (Example - if there are 2 monitors connected and 1 webcam, the DeskCamera will appear as 3 ONVIF devices running on ports 8090, 8091, and 8092. Each device will have 1 video channel.)
Auto discovery over the network
Manage camera parameters directly from NVR/VMS
DeskCamera allows for managing of the following parameters directly from VMS/NVR:
Camera reboot / reset
Video profile (software ships with 2 profiles for each video channel – MainStream and SubStream; NVR can create own profile if needed)
Video Encoding format
Video resolution (software can resize original desktop resolution)**
FPS (range from 3 till 20 is supported) **
Secured ONVIF communication
Secured RTSP streaming
RTSP over UDP and TCP
RTSP over HTTP
Stream desktop/webcam in MJPEG encoding format up to Full HD resolution**
Stream desktop/webcam in H264 encoding format up to Full HD resolution****
Runs in background
UI part of DeskCamera can be protected by password.
* – DeskCamera supports most of the ONVIF Profile S functionality, only configuring network and setting users are not supported
** – Resolution and Fps could be managed for Screen input sources. WebCam input source will always produce web camera original fps and resolution.
*** - “Auto GOP size” checkbox on “Video & Audio Settings” tab must be unchecked to allow managing GOP value from a ONVIF client. The recommended option to keep “Auto GOP size” checked and let DeskCamera control GOP automatically.
**** - “Scale down High resolutions” checkbox on “Video & Audio Settings” tab must be unchecked to make DeskCamera reporting resolutions higher then WXGA (1366*768) for H264 encoder. The recommended option to keep “Scale down High resolutions” checked and let DeskCamera auto scale down high resolutions.
