Mach 2/3 camera
« on: June 24, 2006, 04:33:53 AM »

I've been using a wireless cam to keep an eye on the machines while I work in my office.
It works very well, I can see and hear the machines while I work in my office.
The camera has a built in server so it's not hooked into the computer. (also I can record and others can view the machines from a web page)

What I was wondering is if any one uses a cam/camera on the same machine that controls there cnc and if they have had any issues? I noticed that Mach2/3 has some type of camera plug'in. Does having a cam hooked up cause allot of CPU usage.

One great thing as a request is to be able to remotely/network control of Mach2/3 via another computer. It would be helpful to load another program or pause the machine from my office computer. ;D

Mr.Waterworth,
Thanks for the link, I'll give it a try. Looks to be what I'm looking for.
Is any one doing this type of remote control successfully?

Mr. Barker
Do you think Mach will be interrupted by:
streaming video, sending it wireless to the web and possable record the video
(I was also thinking of setting up a tiny camera focused on the bit as well)?

Guess I could give it a try, but wondered if anyone is doing it now.

 I'd like to use a USB Cam with a chat program, so I can converse with others while I'm working on projects, also to host times that others can view the machine.

Who makes the camera that you are using?

I see the words "Vile Cam", but a Google search on that doesn't seem to work.

Currently Vilecam is privet but possibly public in 6 months

Here are the two camera's I use that work well:
(The Sony will send and receive audio, the Linksys has only a Mic no speaker)

Sony SNC-M1-  $160.00 - $87.00

Affordable range of all-in-one network cameras that incorporate built-in web servers, network interfaces, and built-in microphones to their compact and stylish bodies. With a single camera, both video and audio monitoring can be achieved over a network to meet the demands of a wide range of applications. The cameras utilize the MPEG-4 compression format, which achieves a high compression ratio, providing smooth video and audio streaming over network environments - including those with limited bandwidth.

LINKSYS WVC54G Wireless-G Internet Video Camera- $200.00 - $137.00

Sends a high-quality live audio/video stream to your network wireless over 802.11g -- viewable from anywhere

Zealous, I dont know if you read Brians post correctly ?
Maybe the attached picture might help.

Quite a few of us use "Skype" this program will also let you stream video across to world to either one caller, or a conference of them. All this is free. www.skype.com
