a programs to record full 1080p

January 6, 2012 at 16:18:06
Specs: Windows 7, dual core
Hello to you all,

First time on this forum so here goes, I would like a programs to record full 1080p onto a portable hard drive using a touch screen PC for weddings so guest can record messages.

I was thinking of using a touch screen PC with a HD webcam

It won't need to be a big program as it only has the one job to do

If someone is willing to work with me on this project I am will to pay them a reasonable price.

All Q are welcome

Thanks

i have used this on many occasions, mostly for clubs/bars etc, and it's as good (if not better) as any professional hd camcorder in my opinion

even works great in dimly lit areas as well

I was thinking of the microsoft HD webcam it looks the best one for me but the creative webcam looks just as good.

It's the programming of the software to run it that I need help with as it is a very specific task I need it to do but also very simple too.

As I won't need any flash gimmicks like web access or a big user interface just a simple program to record individual video messages


The program should break down like this....

Screen 1: Home screen with editable text and background jpeg file, button (click here to start your message)
Screen 2: Webcam starts to show user where to stand to get in frame, button (when ready click to start recording)
Screen 3: webcam starts with a record icon in one corner (timed record set to 1min / 2 min)
Screen 4: thank you your message has been record (maybe with the option to view there message)

After viewing there message it should return to screen 1 (also if message is not viewed)
I could design screen shots of how I would like it to look

I hope this helps anyone who wants to help

Thanks

Jon

What you are looking for is not going to be something that's just a few lines of code, it's a program you need writing in VB - this is more of a commercial exercise, unless you want to learn the language yourself.

Depending on where you are, there are a couple of programmers in the UK I know that do such a job, but elsewhere I have no idea. Also, it won't be cheap I'm afraid. You may be better off doing it 'manually' with the webcam - it's the 'easy user interaction' that's the problem.

VB? What is it.... ?
If you could point me in the right direction on where to start it would be a help

How much would you say this mite cost to have it made (ball park figure) as I do live in the uk

As for commercial It is for business use but not on a mass scale (just one unit) as I would like to save on cost I wanted to build it myself.

vb is visual basic (programming script), basically what he's saying is what you are needing is a program specific to your needs which would have to be made as there are no programs like this available that i know of.

the only way to get what you're looking for is to contact a computer programmer and give him your requirements. it doesnt sound like a massive job to be honest, but i'm no programmer so dont take my word for it, as for cost, again, this would be specific to whatever person you employ to do the programming and how long it takes.

what do you mean you want to build it yourself?

actually, just thinking more about this....getting someone to design a web page for this would be much simpler, quicker and possibly cheaper

Right ok so its looking a bigger job than I first thought,

only problem with using a web page is the unit will be stand alone and not everywhere will have internet or if installed mobile internet coverage.

What I meant by build it myself... I have designed the unit from top to bottom at the least amount of cost. To date it has come in at under £1000 including all hardware.

The software is the only problem I can't fix but there is a company that builds something like what I want but the problem is there cost of £10000 per unit

Just can't see how it could cost so much just for one unit but I know you will say the cost of the software

i dont think it's just the cost of software thats the high price, i think it's down to the whole 'customisation' of what you're after, basically a unique system, hence the ludicrous 10k price.

easy way to check mobile internet coverage is just look at your mobile wherever you are wanting your unit to be placed, and if you have a decent signal then your internet dongle will work no probs.

i think, if you've already seen something similar to what you need, and its costing 10k, chances are, you're not going to get exactly what you need for much less, and possibly will be even more.

i would investigate the web page solution if i was you, it would only take a matter of hours to get a working 'prototype' if you like, then you can advise and edit as you go without relying on a program that you would only see the end product, and it might not do exactly as you want, then its back to the drawing board and costing even more money


i would also say that the microsoft camera software only supports up to 720p, you'd need to buy extra software to record in 1080 if you went for that one

I did't know about the Microsoft stuff only going to 720p thanks for that.

the web thing sounds good but the editing was always going to be after as the unit is left unmanned all day with the customer until the end of the hire at which time i would edit the video the next day and put onto a dvd .

I was hoping to spend upto 1k on the program but clearly this is not enough

Thanks for your help

no probs.

i meant editing, as the website is actually being made, like being able to tell the web designer how you want things to be laid out etc. you have full input the whole way through the building of the site, whereas you ask someone to write a program, you cant work on it till its finished

would definitely say £1k would not get you a customised program written.

i know it's not much help mate, but it's a point in the right direction i think. if i was to do this, the web page would be the road i would go down, purely for cost, time and the ease of which it can be changed

You can forget about the software it will be very expensive, 10k sounds cheap you should not be thinking of it as a unit because it has the same process as a software that someone will be able to sell many times where the cost is divided into all the people interested, in this case being just you so someone needs to cover the cost.

As for the website it is a good idea, keep in mind that a website does not necessarily mean a connection to the internet, a website is just like another piece of software but instead of being installed on your computer is installed in a server.

All you would need to do is get a web developer to design you site then install a web server on your computer which will take you less than 10 minutes if you know what you are doing and best of all the web server is free, host the site on your own computer fire the browser and open the locally hosted site, no internet access required and the cost will be something around your budget if you don't really need anything that fancy
