ZipZapMac recently announced the introduction of an improved version of its feature-rich video surveillance system, the Periscope Pro 1.4. The advantage that Periscope Pro 1.4 offers is that unlike other computer-based surveillance software which record video at pre-set intervals and generate large number of video clips that are of no use, Periscope Pro has been designed to shoot video when there is motion. Since the system only records when something is happening, it can capture what the user wants specifically. This can help save not only storage space but also search time.
In a statement, Stanislav Kuptsov, Managing Director of ZipZapMac, said, "We got an unusual amount of user feedback and requests after the release of V1.0. People are really interested in the product. So, we focused our development team on implementing their requests right away and created this new, much stronger version.
Version 1.4 is an upgrade to the Periscope Pro in three ways – it delivers enhanced motion detection via advanced discrimination algorithms; it offers substantial reduction in CPU usage since the new monitoring algorithms use up very little energy the user can use Periscope Pro on his laptop for long periods without having to worry about the laptop battery getting drained; it offers advanced screen control which means the screen can go sleep mode or be turned off without having any impact on the running of Periscope Pro.
Periscope Pro offers easy and quick setup; the system can be setup in a less than a minute and the user can quickly select desired features ranging from the sensitivity of the motion detection, to clip length and recording mode, and video resolution, to the selection of timed and continuous mode. The user can also set the system to start recording at login, or at launch, or even manually turn in on from its control panel.
Periscope Pro can be setup to monitor your office, or home, or even the baby's room. The system’s 1-click video library access allows users to quickly locate the clips they want to view. Furthermore, users can also view clips from any location by using a free Dropbox (News - Alert) account, since Periscope Pro has been designed to upload them automatically.
