Video recording for IP dome camera (C#)

  mikie.white 10:08 20 Nov 2014

I have ordered an IP dome camera from China for security purposes. The basic functions work well (including PTZ motion control), but I would like to build some additional features to improve its efficiency.

The first and foremost is that I need customized video recording, but I can not figure out how to do that.

In more details: I want to capture and save the video stream while the camera is panning between a specified 'A' and 'B' points. I do not want to record all day long, only within a specified time interval.

Instead of using a dedicated DVR or NVR, I would apply a software-based solution. (I prefer .NET languages, especially C#.) I have made some researches and I think the easiest way to implement this feature if I use a camera library. But I can not see my camera in the list of cameras supported by the only one C# camera library (Ozeki Camera SDK) that I found.

Can anybody help me to get started? Any idea would be appreciated!
