CaptureSync is a multi-camera capture application for Mac OS X. It takes video and audio streams and records them to a single file, containing all streams synchronised together.
CaptureSync is perfect for recording events from multiple camera angles simultaneously: interviews, scientific experiments, psychological research, musical performances, sporting events, market research, lectures and presentations. It is easy to set up and operate, with a simple start/stop interface for creating recordings.
Read more about this example CaptureSync recording
CaptureSync produces standard QuickTime Movie files, which are widely supported and perfect for analysis or archiving.
A wide variety of input sources are supported, including virtually all network video devices on the market.
Captures from multiple cameras simultaneously
CaptureSync can capture video and audio from multiple devices at the same time: up to 16 video and audio streams, depending on the processing power of your Mac.
Wide compatibility with different video and audio devices
Many different types of video and audio devices are supported, including analogue, network, HDMI, SDI, USB, FireWire and Thunderbolt, as well as built-in FaceTime/iSight cameras in Mac computers and monitors. In addition, CaptureSync supports ONVIF, which is an open industry standard for IP-based video products, making it easy to set up any compliant device.
Also built into the software is screen capture; any monitor attached to your Mac can be recorded, just like any other video stream.
Powerful real-time compression
For devices that deliver uncompressed data (for example USB cameras, screen captures and your Mac's built-in audio inputs), CaptureSync will encode this data using formats such as MPEG-4 and AAC, for optimum quality and efficient captured file sizes.
Records from cameras and screens of other Macs
With its companion app RemoteSight, CaptureSync can record from the camera, microphone or screen of any other Mac on your network.
Simple AppleScript commands to start and stop recording are supported, making it easy to automate your workflow.
Produces standard QuickTime Movie files
The QuickTime Movie file format has always been the standard container for video and audio data on the Mac, and therefore has wide software support. QuickTime is also available on Microsoft Windows PCs for playback of CaptureSync's captured files.
All compression and other processing required to produce the captured Movie file is done on-the-fly during capture, so the Movie file is ready for playback immediately.
CaptureSync is compatible with Macs running OS X 10.7 - 10.13.
