BCAM Live feed Bob Kulakowski 1/7/2008
I would like to set up my BCAM for a live feed to a PC. I am doing a business show and would like to show live images to guests... I have heard that it can be done over USB but what software to use for display?

Thanks!

Streaming video over USB can be done, however it requires a couple of things:

1. You must have ThermaCAM QuickView 2 or ThermaCAM QuickReport installed.
2. The camera’s USB mode must be set to Network Disk. To set this go into the Settings menu, choose USB Cable, and select Network Disk. When you connect the camera in this mode Windows will load a special FLIR network driver. This is included with QuickView and QuickReport.
3. You need a program to display the video. Page 56 of the BCAM manual suggests using Apple QuickTime, which can be downloaded from Apple’s website: http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/

I could provide more specific instructions if I knew whether you have QuickView or QuickReport, and if you have connected the camera in network mode before.

Feel free to contact me directly if you think it would be easier, my e-mail is shown below. I can contact you by phone if necessary. Or, you can post your question to FLIR’s customer support website: http://flir.custhelp.com

Can you do this with the P60?

No, but there is a much simpler way to show video from a P60. It has composite video output, you can simply connect it to any video monitor or projector with a video in port. It will display exactly what you see on the LCD screen.

Thanks! This is GREAT!

I am using a windows laptop with Windows XP installed.

I have QuickView 2.0 & QuickReport 1.0 installed. My BCAM is already set as a network disk, not USB. I use QuickReport as my download device when moving images.

I have Quicktime Ver 6.5.2 installed.

I would like to have live video from my BCAM.
I have a QuickReport installed. and QuickTime player from Apple as well.
Its an XP.

Connecting the BCAM through the USB creates a new network connection.

The connection is not able to acquire a network address.

Looking to configure it I see the driver has 2 properties that are not assigned.

Could you please let me know how to configure it.

Thanks,
- Boaz.

I know this is an old topic but is it possible to record the vedio using the PC as it is being shown?
