SoftCollection Shooting-Range (FreeWare)
Description:
  SoftCollection Shooting-Range is a shooting training game.
All you need is PC, Web Camera or IP Camera and Laser Gun that emits laser beam for 100 milliseconds.
If you don’t have such gun, you can use simulator in order to see how the game works.
First of all you have to print the target. Desired PDF file can be found in Help/Print Target menu.
When the target is ready, attach it to carton and put in front of the Camera. Camera will see the
target and the laser beam that appears on it. Video Motion Detection algorithm determines where
exactly on the target the laser beam appeared. Important note: because the camera is not directly
in front of the target, but slightly aside, you need every time to adjust the target bounds in the
settings window. You must also set bounds on beam size, so the algorithm will ignore all the changes
that doesn’t fit to the size. Now you must select the Source Type of the video stream
(RTSP Camera/Web Camera/Simulator). When Source Type is selected, select URL for your device.
If RTSP Camera is selected, you can edit the connection list for RTSP Cameras by clicking the
“Edit Camera List” button. If you have Web Cam selected, use 0, 1, 2 for first, second and third
Web Cameras respectively. The next step – click the connect button. When connection status led is
green – you are connected. Click New Game button and play the game.
Features:
  * Supports RTSP Cameras and Web Cameras.
* Automatically remembers last state.




Filters And VMD Demo (FreeWare)
Description:
  Filters And VMD Demo demonstrates the entire Video Motion Detection process.
First of all we have to start Live555 Media Server that will stream desired
Video from file on demand. This Video file must be placed in the same folder as
Media Server's executable file. When the Media Server is ready, we need to connect
to it via RTSP protocol using FFMPEG. When connection established, we will get
encoded frames, that will be decoded to RGB frames using FFMPEG. Now we have
RGB frames that may be to large for VMD so we need to resize them.
Resized frames are also RGB frames so we need to convert them to Grayscale frames
in order to apply them to VMD. Since VMD algorithm may be too hard for CPU, we need
to resize it quickly. To accomplish this goal we divide the frame into macroblocks NxN.
In every such macroblock we get pixel at coordinates (0,0) and put it into new resized
Grayscale (VMD Frame). Each VMD Frame we will put into a Buffer, that allows us to maintain
Average VMD Frame of last N VMD Frames. Now we can get Difference Frame.
Each pixel in that frame is the difference between corresponding pixels in Last VMD Frame
and Average VMD Frame. Now, when we have Difference Frame, we need to decide whether the
difference in that frame is significant enough to be considered as change. So now we will build
Tollerance Frame. If the value in the Difference Frame is bigger than Tollerance Value,
the Tollerance Frame corresponding pixel will have the value of 255, or 0 otherwise.
Tollerance Frame may have noise, in order to reduce this noise we will divide the frame
to macroblocks NxN. Each macroblock's pixel will get median value of all the pixels in
this macroblock. Each macroblock will became a pixel of Median Frame.
Now we have all the objects on the frame as spots. We can get only edges of these spots.
It is Border Frame.
We can also apply various Filters (Blur, Shapen, Edge) to VMD Frame.
