invited Fiebig Astrotechnik to a webinar on Tue, June 9 to present the RCS - Remote Camera Server as a solution to bring Andor scientific cameras to the Internet and enable remote camera control. This solution is provided as a product, targeting wide area setups, like astronomical observatories, maybe remote or robotic, or large experimental physics labs. See more.

ASTRO.control Logo The ASTRO.control concept provides an architecture and platform for development of control systems in astronomy and experimental physics. The system is based on robust industrial PC hardware for harsh environments, a tailored Linux distribution, being optimized for control applications, many device drivers available out of the box, a software infrastructure for control and real-time applications in C++ and specific protocols for communication between controller computers and operator workstations. This platform enables custom control applications to be developed efficiently and in a time-saving way.

The Remote Camera Server is an application built on this platform and available as a product.
