Maximum Number of Cameras per PC

The maximum number of cameras that can be controlled from one PC depends on the computer. Most laptop and desktop computers should be able to control up to 16 cameras. Desktop PCs generally have better power supplies than laptops and may be able to control more than 16 cameras (one customer reports reliable operation with 77 cameras controlled from a single desktop PC).

Multiple PCs can be networked togeter to control larger numbers of cameras. Please see this page for more information.


Triggering Cameras

Multiple cameras connected a single computer can be triggered via the USB connection but there will be a delay of approximately 1/10 second between each camera taking a photo. For larger arrays of cameras and more accurate synchronization (to within a few milliseconds) it is necessary to trigger the cameras via their remote release sockets. Please see this page on the Breeze Systems' website for more information.
