The Grandeye Halocorder is a high-resolution recording solution for the Halocam-R 360° analogue camera.

Connecting via a dedicated high-speed digital port on the Halocam-R, the Halocorder will capture the entire 3MP fisheye image, independent of PTZ operations carried out at the time. Images can be recorded at up to 4fps. The recorded images can be played back through the Halocam-R as though they were live images. PTZ control and the generation of virtual cameras (VCAMs) and panoramas is available during playback, just as on the live images. During playback, recording continues uninterrupted.

A recording is carried out on a continuous, scheduled or event-driven basis (or a combination of these). During playback, an intuitive, navigable timeline indicates which type of recordings are present at each point in time.

Halocorder is IP-enabled for connection to PCs over a standard TCP/IP network, locally or remotely, using the supplied Haloviewer application. Haloviewer enables live camera viewing, and recorded material may be viewed, downloaded and archived for later review. Downloads may be scheduled or performed manually. Self-contained CD/DVDs may be generated which include video clips and an intuitive PTZ interface and timeline, which do not require installation.

Halocorder eliminates the shortcoming of conventional security recordings by enabling investigators to go back in time and pan, tilt and zoom around the scene as though present at the time of an incident.
