Project Description

Build a program for video recording. Currently we use Debut video recorder which works very well but doesn’t quite do exactly what we want.

Hardware: [url removed, login to view] Celeron Tablet running Win8 with a kWorld USB capture device.

The intent is to have the system boot up and go right into a full screen application with the live video feed. Along the right side there should be buttons for recording control. The problem with Debut is the buttons are across the top and bottom, on a widescreen display with SD video this wastes a lot of space. Our video feed is 4:3 640x480. We should have a record, pause and stop button. An easy method for playback on the interface. Video should be compressed by [url removed, login to view] or other method with audio.

Other requirements are a user enabled/adjustable time and date overlay, user entered/adjustable text overlay, and logo overlay. I tested ManyCam and I like how I could use the mouse/touchscreen to draw on the live video and record it, like a football game. Brightness, contrast and gamma adjust would be needed.

I would also like to consider the ability to record from a network camera for HD.

File saving should be able to route to a predetermined folder with date and time in the filename. Recording should be limited to manageable sizes and new files started automatically. We need a screen capture button too, that saves JPGs to a folder.

The program should be designed to operate easily by touch screen on a 10” tablet at resolution 1360x768.
