Want to harness the DVR power capability of StreamPix or TroublePix into your own application? Use HERMES API, a proven reliable API for DVR applications.

HERMES API is our standard low-level library at Norpix. All of our end user software products, such as StreamPix or TroublePix, are developed on top of the HERMES API.

HERMES is a set of C/C++ callable objects and functions that can be added to your own application to handle image capture, image recording and playback, as well as image display and exporting.

Here is a list of some available features when programming with HERMES API:
