About Webcampak

"Webcampak", is an integrated piece of software aiming to interconnect DSLR/Compact cameras, USB Webcams, IP Cameras, ... to the rest of the world. It is an autonomous appliance, once installed and configured it can stay online for months, automatically capturing and processing pictures.

Where IP Cameras available on the market target framerate and seamless streaming, we took it the other way around and target high quality and customizable output but with a very low framerate.
