Scalable video made easy.
High definition networked video cameras with millisecond-precise synchronization. Record simultaneously from any number of cameras, for multi-view 3D tracking of behavior.
Multi-user, multi-experiment, multi-view.
Control securely and access remotely.
Process video stream in real-time and simultaneously record to disk.
Pair different host systems with up to 60 cameras on one network.
Lifetime license and software support included; no recurring annual costs.
Made for Research
Infrared or visible light, behavioral monitoring or deep-learning 3D tracking, real-time or offline processing: e3Vision flexibly covers all these use cases. Road-tested by the DeepLabCut authors and featured in tracking case studies. e3Vision used in DeepLabCut Case Study #7: pupil tracking by Thomas Vaissière
With their miniature size, universal GoPro-style mounts, and single-cable connections, our cameras and hubs are made for fast and easy deployment in compact labs and behavioral enclosures.
|e3 Vision||Security Cameras||Machine Vision Cameras|
15 cameras per hub, up to 4 hubs per gigabit network
10-50 cameras on separate switches on network
1-2 cameras fills up a gigabit network
One-click synchronized recordings for all cameras
Clock differences cause seconds of video drift over hours, cannot be synchronized with neural data
Can be synchronized using a separate sync cable
|Ease of use|
Single cable handles data, power, and sync
Single data / power cable, not synchronized
Separate data / power, and sync cables
Proprietary GUI, not easily integrated with experiments
Depends on manufacturer
|Secure remote access|
Local only or self-hosted remote control options. Authenticated login and encrypted control of cameras.
Cloud-based remote access and storage not suitable for human or animal research recordings
Can usually only be viewed or controlled by the recording PC, authentication generally not supported
