2. What is Webcampak ?

Webcampak is a device aimed to automatically capture, store and process pictures initially created to be used with DSLR cameras.

Our product has evolved and is compatible with a wide range of devices:

Being compatible with high-end DSLR cameras, Webcampak can process very high quality pictures when connected to an appropriate camera (not all DSLR are compatible).

Canon point-and-shoot cameras, sold after 2009, are not compatible anymore but you can still find such camera on the second-hand market for a fraction of their original price.

2.1. Communication

Webcampak has been conceived right from the beginning to be network-enabled. It is compatible with various types of links:

  • GPRS/3G/4G

  • Wi-Fi (2,4 or 5 Ghz)

  • Ethernet

  • Satellite

Some Internet links (especially wireless) are subject to FUP (Fair Use Policy) limiting the amount of data to be transmitted each month. Webcampak can fit almost any FUP limitations by:

  • Sending a fraction of captured pictures (for example, send 1 out of 5 pictures)

  • Reducing pictures resolution of pictures sent over network

  • Cropping pictures

By adjusting those parameters you can limit the amount of data to be transferred and therefore be compliant with your provider's FUP.

2.2. Picture quality

Webcampak compatible with all Canon DSLR cameras and associated lenses.

Picture quality during day or night time will be very close (if not identical) to quality that can be obtained by a professional photographer for a single shot.

Take in consideration that some cameras and/or lenses might required Webcampak adjustments (might require a larger enclosure due to lens size).

2.3. Webcampak versions

There is only one Webcampak solution, but our product is available in two different models:

  • Webcampak: is an automated capture device in an all-weather enclosure.

  • Webcampak-Pro: is a concentration point for pictures, it can process a potentially unlimited number of sources. It has been created to be installed in an IT room or a datacenter.

Both models are equipped with the exact same software, the only difference being physical elements (all-weather enclosure, amount of RAM, CPU, ...).

2.4. Where to procure Webcampak ?

Webcampak is available for sale or for rent in any country. Webcampak is always provide pre-configured and ready to use. It can also be provided with a wide range of services.
