RemoteSight for Mac

By Ben Bird Free to try

Developer's Description

RemoteSight is an application for video and audio transmission over a network. It captures video from any attached video input device (for example the built-in iSight camera included in many Macintosh computers), which can then be viewed on another computer over a network or the internet. The primary use of RemoteSight is as part of a Mac-based video surveillance system, sending video and audio feeds over a network to a central recording computer. To this end it integrates seamlessly with SecuritySpy, the premier multi-camera video surveillance software on the Macintosh platform, to provide video and audio feeds from any computer attached to a network.

RemoteSight can also be used as a standalone application for remotely monitoring anything happening on or around a particular computer, or for adding live images to web sites. RemoteSight effectively turns the computer's camera into a network camera that can be viewed using a web browser such as Safari or FireFox. The feature list is as follows:

- Streams video and audio via the built-in web server
- Supports most Macintosh-compatible cameras and audio input devices
- Screen capture
- Runs in the background with low CPU usage
- Integrates seamlessly with SecuritySpy
- Supports both JPEG and MPEG-4 video streaming formats
- Remote management of settings via the web interface
