Options for VideoCAD
VideoCAD is a 2D/3D drafting and calculating tool for professional CCTV system design.
VideoCAD allows to:
Choose the most suitable lenses, heights and locations for camera installation to provide the required parameters of view areas, detect and identify a person, read license plates.
Construct three dimensional models of real scenes with the possibility of loading prepared 3D models (a person, a car, etc., this library can be enlarged).
Obtain a 3D model of a real image from each video camera. This image can be printed and saved.
Model quality parameters of a video image (resolution, compression, coloration, smoothing, contrast, brightness).
Model multiscreen monitors and design operator interface.
Locate cameras and cables on the prepared layouts in *.bmp, *.jpg, *.emf, *.wmf, *.dwg, *.dxf formats.
Obtain a drawing containing camera images, calculated view areas and cables to be pasted into graphical path of the project.
Print out the obtained drawing on one or several pages.
Export the obtained drawing into any of the following formats: *.bmp,*.emf, *.wmf, *.dxf.
Calculate the Depth-of-field of each camera in the project.
Calculate the length and electric parameters of cables.
Obtain a text file with full description of all the cameras in the project.
Study the principles of object representation in different view area parts.
Save expenses and win tenders due to the reduction of cameras' quantity in projects and the increase of their efficiency.
Reduce the time expended and boost the design quality.
Cut down the amount of controversial situations with customers and accelerate their solution.

VideoCAD can be used for the prompt, but exact calculations of the view area projections to draw on a location plan when performing a graphical part of project. It can be also used to perform a view area scrupulous analysis to choose the most suitable camera location and lens parameters.
VideoCAD can be effective at CCTV designer training.
