Live video capture

Real-Time register is the environment where videos can be viewed from an external source ( video camera, video converter, etc. ) connected to the computer. While a video file is being created a user can use a category template to register actions.

Both video and actions register are created simultaneously. At the end of the event, users will have all the actions in a timeline, where they can be easily analyzed and managed.
