e3 Vision

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
On-camera compression

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

Frame synchronization

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

Automation

Full automation with Python, MATLAB, or Javascript

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
