Softpedia Editor's Review for IP Camera Viewer
IP camera monitoring software that you can use to view multiple cameras
Written by Bogdan Popa on May 17th, 2012
IP Camera Viewer is a powerful tool developed to help users monitor cameras from the comfort of their desktops, using several other features introduced to enhance the whole experience.
IP Camera Viewer is actually a very simple way to view multiple cameras at the same time without the need for opening the web browser and loading a webpage.
Instead, the application provides a well thought out GUI that allows users to configure a camera and even control it thanks to the built-in utilities.
As its name suggests, you need the camera’s IP to set it up, but also brand and model. You’re also allowed to configure video resolution, display name and, if needed, rotate the image and write down authentication information. USB cameras are supported too, this time with a lot less information required.
The main window of the program is being used for previewing purposes, with up to 4 preview panels at your disposal, each for every configured camera. IP Camera Viewer supports up to 1500 camera models, all of which can be even controlled with digital zooming tools included in the app.
Another good feature available in IP Camera Viewer is the backup and restore utility that allows users to import and export cameras settings in order to use them on another computer or simply save them just to be on the safe side.
A comprehensive help manual is also available, which means you should be able to figure out how to use each feature easily, and so are online resources, just in case you need more documentation on a specific tool.
All things considered, IP Camera Viewer is undoubtedly a very good piece of software, providing not only a very well-organized interface, but also plenty of features that could in the end improve the overall experience with the program.
