Combine measurement data and video images

The video recording system ibaCapture records video and HMI images synchronously to measurement data - either continuously or triggered by events. Important events can be automatically stored as still images. The exact relation and simultaneous display of recorded measurement data and visual information with ibaAnalyzer offers a completely new quality of process analysis.


ibaCapture at a glance

Synchronous recording of video images and measurement data with ibaPDA

Continuous and event-triggered recording

Integration of HMI images and images from ibaVision as virtual cameras

Protected storage areas for important sequences

Capturing from of up to 64 cameras (analog, IP, GigE or virtual) and online visualization

View and analyze video sequences and measurement data with ibaAnalyzer

Live image display as replacement for a CCTV system

Event-triggered switching of display-layouts (Scenario Player)

A picture is worth a thousand values

Record and analyze videos and measurement data synchronously

See everything

ibaCapture can be used to capture and record video from cameras and HMI systems synchronized to measurement values in ibaPDA.

Time-synchronized Images and data

Images and measurement data can be viewed in a time-synchronized way with accuracy down to individual samples. As a result, causalities that are often not identifiable at first glance can be better understood.

Better Process Monitoring

The use of cameras improves process monitoring wherever operations are difficult to measure or process steps cannot be reliably detected with sensors.

Central User Management

User management is now integrated in Active Directory so users and passwords can be administered centrally

Synchronous data recording with ibaPDA

ibaCapture Server records video and provides synchronization data over a network connection for use in ibaPDA.


Multiple ibaCapture Servers can be installed in a network. It is possible to access an ibaCapture Server from multiple ibaPDA systems, but also multiple ibaCapture Servers can be synchronized to one ibaPDA system.

Continuous and triggered recording

In addition to continuous video recording, process sequences of particular interest can be recorded when triggered by an event.

Easy configuration

The connected cameras are configured with ibaCapture Manager. The suitable video parameters can be adjusted for each camera, such as bit rate, frame rate and resolution.

Live image display and replay

The video images can be viewed live and as a replay with adjustable speed in ibaPDA Client, ibaQPanel or in ibaCapture Manager.

Scenario Player in ibaQPanel

It is easy to lose track when monitoring multiple displays. With the Scenario Player feature in ibaQPanel it is therefore possible to set up signal based triggers.

Capture and data storage

The compressed video streams from all configured cameras are captured by ibaCapture Server and stored on the hard disk.

Supported cameras

ibaCapture supports analog cameras, IP cameras as well as cameras compatible with GigE Vision ®.

Discover relations between operation and process

Visual information of the HMI operator stations, including operating procedures, are recorded synchronously with process data from ibaPDA with the help of virtual cameras.

Virtual cameras

The screen contents of HMI stations as well as the output streams of ibaVision programs can be recorded as virtual cameras.

Extract visual signals from image processing

ibaVision processes image data recorded with ibaCapture and extracts visual signals or processed images with added visual information.

Offline analysis of video images and measured data

Measurement data and video sequences can be viewed and evaluated in ibaAnalyzer.
