OEM plug in software for CCTV equipment control

How Camfunction Engine worksHow Camfunction Engine works

CCTV Software Ltd has released Camfunction Engine which allows 3rd party software to control over 70 brands of leading CCTV cameras, switchers and recording devices by sending simple DDE commands to the hidden Camfunction Engine software.

Camfunction Engine dramatically speeds up software development and is a great way to fast track development for CCTV functionality using proven industry software. Software developers can create their own GUI in minutes by utilising the free example source code.

The following commands can be sent:-

Camera selection
Monitor selection
Preset position selection/preset store
Pan and tilt movement and speed select
Zoom in and out
Focus near and far
Iris open and close
Function key trigger (1 to 999).
(This command allows the use of a popup video window, snapshot function and provides access to e-mail / internet upload features and many more functions).
Make Engine visible / invisible
(This command allows you to give the appearance that your GUI is controlling the CCTV system on it’s own).

Camfunction Engine software is constantly updated with new controllable products and protocol changes. A massive undertaking in itself, but one that CCTV Software is setup to do efficiently. Why spend months developing and years updating control software ? Let Camfunction take the strain !
