Here we will show you how can manage cameras and Deepcores available in your system.

List Available Deepcores

By clicking in the Deepcores​ tab we are brought to the Deepcore Overview​ page, which lists the Deepcore devices registered in your system.

If the Deepcore icon presents a green dot, it means that this Deepcore is online and connected to the system. However if it presents a red dot, it means that this Deepcore device is currently offline and not available.

We can also access and edit some basic information by interacting with the buttons marked in red in Figure 1.

Currently, it is possible to see general information about the Deepcore device, see currently connected cameras to the Deepcore device, add an identifying note to the Deepcore device and edit general information via key-value tags.

By clicking in the Cameras​ tab we are brought to the camera Overview​ page, which lists all cameras connected to Deepcores.

If the camera icon presents a green dot, it means that this camera is connected and ready to be used. However if it presents a red dot, it means that this camera used to be connected to the system, but it is not available currently, so please make sure that the camera is correctly connected to a working Deepcore device.

Here you can:

  1. Choose which mode to run (e.g. Color).
  2. Set the camera frame rate.
  3. Set the allowed bit rate.
  4. Set the streams resolution.
  5. Finally, run the selected mode (e.g preview the color stream).

Not all options are available for every mode, and some modes have more options than others, however you should always be able to preview the different streams, one at a time.

To stop a running camera please click the Close and Stop​ button.

Adding a camera

In order to add a supported camera, you need only to connect it to a registered Deepcore device. Then it should show up in you connected cameras list (see Figure 2).
