  • Localized versions of GUI are available for many languages of the world

  • Additional visual meta data (in EMF format) may be streamed with the video content and displayed on a video pane of the client side


Recording and Storing Video

The management software can stream, store, and playback video at up to 30 frames per second for NTSC video per channel. Recorded video data is stored to a local hard drive or remote network storage. Powerful management and viewing features provide immediate access to the stored video data.

The solution is applied with advanced compression technology for networked video surveillance, thus optimized for streaming over IP.

  • Automatically resumes recording on AC power loss

  • Complete support of remote storage servers


Simultaneous remote playback while recording without interruption.

  • Random access index provides virtually instantaneous and accurate admission to desired video segment
  • Fast, slow, and frame-by-frame forward and reverse playback modes
  • Audio can be enabled or muted during playback
  • Backward and frame-by-frame MPEG playback from the remote storage locationClient support for simultaneous LIVE preview of multiple media types at the same time


Searching Video Data

Search recorded video data by date, time, and motion information, or navigate by alarm events. Multiple search functions streamline the process of evidence handling.

Diagnosing System Status

The health status check of individual systems is monitored and viewed in thumbnails. This ensures and updates the functional status of modular units installed in the networked area.


The management program allows users to add, remove, or configure system settings and resources on LAN and WAN servers. Through an authentication process, each user is given a different security level for remote access. There is no limitation on the number of servers and clients connected to the system.

  • Unauthorized access is prevented by native Windows security
  • Supervisor - and user - access levels available
  • Flexible permissions control for every individual camera (view, modify) or action (recording control playback, alarm reset)

Alarm & Sensors

There are various ways to handle external devices and events.

  • Video motion and static detection with sensitivity level and up to 4 zones map adjustment for any type of cameras
  • PTZ interface to wide range of supported camera models via RS232/422/485 interface
  • Alarm events can be triggered by any of up to 32 external sensors
  • Pre-programmed or manual activation of up to 16 external relay switches
  • Sophisticated alarm handling software can start/stop the recording process, enable or disable motion and static detection, produce an on-screen warning text and/or beep, bring up a video camera display window to change a quality and/or frame rate setting for any video channel

If you are interested in providing VideoSpider encoding cards, standalone multic-channel encoders and servers, and accessories to your customers on OEM basis, please contact or the regional office for more information.

Spider Software Development Kits (SDK)

To support OEM customers with programming experience, detailed SDKs are provided with guidance and examples on how to access, use, customize, and develop user-customized applications.

The latest SDK packages include:

Spider ActiveX SDK -- allows customers to create their own simple and sophisticated client software in fast and simple way for VideoSpider. The supplied documentation and samples VB, C#, C++ code illustrate remote camera control, live video monitoring, video storage management, playback of recorded video data and many other tasks commonly performed by client-side software in VideoSpider.

Spider Export SDK -- provides programmers with ability to obtain data directly from the VideoSpider Core service on the server side or SpiderClient software on the client in order to convert it into any desired format for later displaying, processing, sharing, etc.

PTZ/Alarm plug-in (PTZA) SDK -- enables SI/VAR customers to add support for their own PTZ controllers as well as Alarm sensor/Relay output interface modules. The goal of this SDK is to create a variety of custom plug-in modules for custom hardware connected to VideoSpider servers.

Spider File Storage (SPFS) SDK -- assists software developers in parsing the proprietary SpiderFile Storage (.SPFS) file format and the index file (.INFO) associated with it. This maybe required for the offline storage analysis, statistics, data extraction, conversion to different formats, etc.

Each of the SDK packages comes as a self-extracting ZIP archive containing all necessary documentation, C++ headers, sample C++ code and ready-to-compile project files for MicrosoftVisual Studio IDE. All of the above SDKs are available for self-study and evaluation at no additional cost.

SDK components for MPEG4 Encoding cards and Accessories Hardware


iSP4xx devices and SP416 SDK -- the libraries for interaction with the devices drivers set in the system; provide the user with uniform interface for using and controlling these encoding cards and devices.

Web-based video monitoring software (optional)

Since introduction of the iSpider.NEToption to the VideoSpider line of servers, the VideoSpider users have obtained a new opportunity to access their server systems through the Internet directly from the Internet Explorer web browser without any need to install and configure the Spider Client software. If you need to modify any of the pages provided by the iSpider.NET (for example, to perform localization into your languages), please refer to the users documentation provided with iSpider.NET installation package. The documentation explains the existing structure of the iSpider.NET default web site and lists all files which may be changed and replaced by users. Alternatively, OEM/SI customers may choose to develop their own Internet-enabled application software that would interact with iSpider.NET server via specially formed URL and HTTP protocol. Such an application would have to process the incoming control and image data in a fashion similar to the Internet Explorer and display result to the user.
