This program simply shows a delayed live video stream of a digital camera. This is a great program that enables you to give video feedback to swimmers during training sessions, without having to rewind or to start or stop a recording.
Just connect your digital camera, start the software, select the camera and the path through Settings and set the delay in seconds. That's it. So stop rewinding and start to give 'live' feedback!
Below three screenshots of version 3. Note that the large video panel is somewhat 'behind' the small video panel. The swimmer can climb out of the water and see his own start, with or without comments of the trainer, without having to do anything with the camera or the computer.
The new version 4 is work in porogress. A first beta version is available: "4 beta1". Below is a short video of the first beta version.
Compared to version 3, the current beta version already has a few improvements:
The upcoming improvements are currently planned to be implemented before version 4 is released:
