Integration of capture devices

Altami VideoKit differs from most of the classical application because capture devices are fully supported. Altami VideoKit allows not only to capture frames from camera, but also to control its settings. The application supports in different operating systems (Altami VideoKit - cross-platform software) the broad range of standrads for capture devices, including Microsoft DirectShow, UVC, unicap, Qt Capture.

Image preview

In this mode the preview window occupies the whole space of the screen, which allows to examine the image details better. The preview image can be enlarged, and the navigator window, which is used for convenient orientation, shall appear.

Fullscreen mode

In Altami VideoKit application it is possible to use the whole screen for viewing the image. In order to do that, the user needs just to switch to the fullscreen mode. In that mode all opportunities of the application are available, including capture and application and camera setting.

Shooting auto mode

The application allows to perform automatic capture. You can indicate the resolution volume (in pixels) of the image being captured, the more the volume is, the more place the image will take at the disc, and the more time the capture will take. This parameter is especially crucial for video capture. With large resolutions and comparatively small productivity of the computer the “slowing down” of the image is possible. Volumes of all settings at the time of capture influence the saved videos and photos.

Storage options

Saving of settings allows to indicate the rules of creating file names by saving images and control the automatic capture of images. It possible to choose the variant of saving where a standard saving dialogue is called, or you indicate all necessary parameters at once, and the application will form the file name without your participation. In the application a simple and convenient mechanism of profile settings is used. All current camera settings and saving parameters are included into the profile.

Saving images and videos

You can save received captures and copy the videos to the hard disk of the computer. You can also easily and quickly configure the paths for saving images and videos.
