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.
Combine arbitrary sets of cameras across users.
Pair different host systems with different sets of cameras
Made for Research
|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
