In this chapter, we will explain what each configuration offers in SCC and demonstrate how each radio button affects
1．Camera Image and Camera Type
When you access SCC using a web browser, you should see a screen like
Make sure the USB web camera is attached to your Raspberry Pi.
You will see an image with date and time on the top of SCC. The format of date and time in the image is “YEAR-MONTH-DATE
Status & Turn ON/OFF Button
Status :Status will show the current status of camera capture
- Turn ON/OFF
Button :Toggles the camera capture ON or OFF. When OFF (as indicated by “Status”), the image disappears from SCC
HVC: You can select a USB or HVCcamera depends on type of camera you have attached to your Raspberry Pi
In this section of SCC, there are 6 types of configuration you can manipulate. They
--Apply Now ＆ Reload Current Configuration--
As the names suggest, those two buttons can apply configuration changes and reload
Now :Apply all changes you have made in configuration section and it will take effect immediately
- Reload Current
Configuration :You can undo all the changes you made in configurationsection. Note, you cannot undo this operation
You can choose 5 different detection methods. We are planning to present
Detection :Detects facial expression and eye movement
Tracking :Detects movement of head and shoulders
Tracking :Detects rear of a car
Tracking :Detects QR Code
Tracking :Detects AR Code. Currentlyour system only detects AR code compliant with the ArUco librarly None :Choose ‘None’ if you don’t want any detection from the camera
You can turn on/off
Capturing :Choose ‘ON’ to add sound to the recorded video(mp4 file). When you pick ‘ON’, the Audio Device menu will appear at right below the Audio section
Device :Choose audio device from pulldown menu
Rate :Choose samplingrate from pulldownmenu. Range and number of values vary from camera to camera
This configuration controls whether you want to upload your snapshot and/or video to the cloud storage. You can access the uploaded data at SCORER Management Console. This will be explained more in the next chapter.
Snapshot :The system periodically saves snapshots to the cloud storage when its ”On” Video :The system saves a movie with 10 minutes span to cloud storage when its ”On”
This configuration is used if you wish to broadcast live video through video-sharing service such as YouTube.
- Periodic Camera
Image :Turn it “On” to let images automatically get uploaded to the cloud storage
Streaming :When you select ‘ON’, the Live Stream Method menu appears right below Audio section
--Live Stream Method--
You can choose live video streaming methods from RTSP, RTMP, and RTP. You can obtain information
You can reverse and/or rotate the image.
Select ‘None’ if you don’t want to do any flipping or rotating the image None:
Rotate-180 :Rotate the image 180°. This flipping can be used when you have mounted your camera onceiling
Clockwise :Rotate the image 90°clockwise
Counterclockwise :Rotate the image 90°counter-clockwise
Horizontal-flip :Mirror-reverse the image in horizontal direction
Vertical-flip :Mirror-reverse the image in vertical direction
Upper-left-diagonal :Rotate the image 90°counter-clockwise then flip upside-down
Upper-right-diagonal :Rotate the image 90°clockwise then flip upside-down
You can select
1280x720) :You can’t select HD and Face Detection at sametime. If you do this you will see the warning message as below
If you have selected other than ‘Face Detection’ or ‘None’ in the Detection Method section and chose ‘HD’, you will receive a message window as below.
!!!Note!!! This combination of configuration will give the Raspberry Pi a heavy load that could slow down detection process.
Here are sample outcomes of
BRIGHTNESS :Adjusting overall image brightness
CONTRAST :Set brightness tone of the image
SATURATION :Changes the brilliance and intensity of a color
GAMMA :Changes image’s contrast and brightness
HUE :In terms of skin tones, the minus side increases reddishness, while the plus side enhances yellow tones
SHARPNESS :Change the strength of subject’s outline
--SAVE ＆ Set Auto--
You can save the current property values. Also, you can reset current property values and set camera’s default value.
Save :Saves current property values. When you restart the Raspberry Pi, saved property value will be set
Auto :Reset current property value and set camera’s default value. When you click this button, a message window as below will be shown on the screen. Reboot the Raspberry Pi and click ‘OK’ to continue
That’s all for the SCORER Camera Control instruction.
In the next chapter, we will explain how to register your Raspberry Pi with the Scorer Management Console(SMC) and demonstrate downloading movies/snapshots/logs from the SMC.
