Mscan SSTV is a lightweight Windows application whose purpose is to help you receive and transmit color images in slow scan television (SSTV) mode. In addition, it supports a custom WYSIWYG screen editor that can be used while transmitting.
The GUI is made up of two panels that give you the possibility to keep an eye on the incoming and outgoing videos. A small floating window reveals the spectrum data.
Process the incoming video and configure settings
Mscan SSTV allows you to save the current image to JPG, GIF, TIF, PCX, PNG, BMP, or other file format, choose between several SSTV modes (e.g. P3, Robot 36, P5, TIME), as well as copy the current image to the clipboard.
Several configuration settings are implemented for helping you disable the Windows screensaver, hide spectrum window and outgoing video panel, automatically size incoming and outgoing video windows, maintain exact aspect ratio for images, and smooth scale photos. Other important settings offer you the freedom to adjust the sound card and modify calibration parameters.
Work with the outgoing video
The application lets you transmit or receive data, send repeater tone, load custom pictures from your computer, add transparent images, export photos to the disk, choose between several preset font options, alter the font, font style, size and color, and turn on or off several font effects (e.g. gradient, shadow).
All things considered, Mscan SSTV integrates a decent feature pack for helping you send and receive color images online in SSTV (slow-scan television) mode. On the downside, the GUI cannot be characterized as highly intuitive and practical, so less experienced users may need extra time in order to decode the program’s features.
