DVR-Scan DVR-Scan Logo


DVR-Scan is a command-line application for detecting areas in a video that contain motion, automatically extracting each motion segment as a separate file for further viewing or processing. This makes managing a large amount of footage from, for example, security cameras/DVRs, a much more manageable task, as only the areas of interest need to be reviewed after processing with DVR-Scan.

See DVR-Scan on Readthedocs for more information.
