The Spider 3D software consists of the authoring (3D modeling) and client components available separately. The authoring package is intended for experienced 3D designers to create the desired model. Examples range from simple virtual video wall designs to large scale, detailed 3D model of real security installation. After the design is completed, the Spider 3D client software can be installed on a specially configured powerful VideoSpider client station SM2000 to visualize the 3D model along with the real time video feed from the cameras at the pre-defined locations. Operator may use interactive controls such as keyboard or touch-screen buttons and PC joysticks to control location of his/her own viewpoint as well as adjust position and zoom of real PTZ-controllable cameras. These changes will be visible on the 3D graphics display immediately.
