Chronos 1.4 and 2.1-HD Ethernet connectivity and control now available

Gone are the days the Chronos camera can only be triggered remotely via a signal or BNC switch. Our team is now offering network control for the Chronos camera! One of the biggest improvements that came with the release of firmware update v0.4.0 is the ability to monitor and control the camera over an Ethernet connection and save files to an NFS or samba share. This is something the team at Kron Technologies has been working on for some time and is really excited about!

Users will be able to control parameters such as frame rate, resolution, shutter speed, save format, recording modes, triggers and much more through the web interface we have designed. The camera can also be triggered via your own API. The possibility to live stream a video at 60 fps is also available!

  • API for camera control via JSON/HTTP over the Ethernet port.
  • Saving of media over network to an NFS and Samba share.
  • Software updates can be downloaded over the internet.
  • Real-time video stream from the camera using RTSP.

For more details on how to set up the camera for network control, refer to these Network Control instructions on our website.

    • Do you need to control both cameras from two different interfaces or both in a synchronized way by only controlling one via the web interface?

      • It looks like my reply did not get nested with your response. Sorry.

        We need to be able to set the acquisition parameters on each camera and then prepare them to start taking data on an external trigger. I am guessing that this will require two interfaces to allow us to setup each camera. Once the video has been acquired, we will then want to download the video data from each camera. We can do this via USB or ethernet, depending on what works.

    • Using the webpage over USB on two cameras at the same time won’t work. In fact, there is no easy way to change the USB interface’s IP address at the moment. Our recommendation would be to switch at least one of the cameras to using Ethernet to connect. For that you will want to use a switch / router. This configuration will let you connect to as many cameras simultaneously as you want.
