ZoneMinder is a suite of applications intended for use in video camera security applications, including theft prevention and child or family member monitoring. It supports capture, analysis, recording, and monitoring of video data coming from one or more video or network cameras attached to a Linux system. It also features a user-friendly Web interface which allows viewing, archival, review, and deletion of images and movies captured by the cameras. The image analysis system is highly configurable, permitting retention of specific events, while eliminating false positives. ZoneMinder supports both directly connected and network cameras and is built around the definition of a set of individual 'zones' of varying sensitivity and functionality for each camera. This allows the elimination of regions which should be ignored or the definition of areas which will alarm if various thresholds are exceeded in conjunction with other zones. All management, control, and other functions are supported through the Web interface.
The Interactive Television Publishing System (ITPS) offers a simple way to produce ATVEF-A compliant ETV features. At the heart of the system is a database that separates form (in this case, device-specific markup code) from content (text and images appropriate to show segments). Database content is published to HTML via Perl using device-specific modules. A handful of additional static HTML pages, such as the search form, make up the remainder of the code required to support a particular client device. Devices are routed to appropriate pages via a "sniffer" page, implemented using the XSSI syntax available in Apache 1.3 or higher.
furious_tv is a PVR backend that uses an SQLite database to hold XMLTV listings data. Using that data, it can automatically execute commands to record TV shows off of a capture device (multiple capture devices are supported). If Shuriken is installed, furious_tv can also automatically power the system on/off for recordings to save power.
TVprg.php is a kind of TV program displayer. The TV-program information is either gathered by Perl scripts via HTTP download or by importing xmlTV resources. Furthermore, it allows you to export the stored data into xmlTV data format. It is realized in PHP4, and it stores its data in a MySQL database.
TVEz is a browser-based system to manage movies, shows, and clips stored on local or remote file systems. It is also a front end to the XINE video player that makes the control of the player possible from the Web browser. It retrieves information about movies, including an image of the cover, from IMDB, and stores that information in a MySQL database. The database entries are fully searchable by director, writers, actors, titles, etc. It includes a rating system for movies by which movies can be sorted such that your most favorite ones appear on top of the list. The Web-based configuration is generic enough so that any kind of show can easily be added to the shows listing. The playlist is fully manageable.
vrbroadcast is a video on demand and media distribution server. It supports hierarchical networks of servers that will automaticaly update information on the available media. It has a GUI that is only available in German, but the server was written with multi-language support in mind.
Infojection provides a multimedia playback system. It is ideally suited to digital signage, plasma screen advertising, and public information screens. Players connected to projectors or big screens are able to display a variable schedule of Live TV or video, digital video like DivX, MPEG, Flash, MS PowerPoint, or HTML. Other possibilities can be realized through plugins. A Java/Tomcat Web app provides the Media Manager. Media is imported, scheduled, and then distributed to a potentially massive number of players and screens.
