For FitsCast 2.2Publisher's description


FitsCast is a Photo & Image software developed by Carsten Arnholm. After our trial and test, the software is proved to be official, secure and free. Here is the official description for FitsCast:

Edit by Brothersoft: Standard webcams like e.g. Philips ToUcam have been used for webcasts (also astronomical events). A lot of software exists which can save individual webcam images as JPG-files for immediate broadcast to a website via FTP File Transfer.

Processing is done in two automatic steps (both done in the background):
Fits_push (Fits_push is a separate program written by Martin Burri, it is installed together with FitsCast): This first step takes the original FITS file and performs histogram and gamma adjustments based on the command line arguments. The syntax is "Min Max Gamma", and can be understood more or less like the Photoshop "Levels" adjustment. Min, Max are either pixelvalues or 'a' to use the actual image min, max values. Gamma must be a number in the range of 0.10 to 9.99. Fits_push always saves the result as a new 16bit grayscale FITS file, regardless of input FITS format. This is in preparation of the next processing step with IrfanView.

IrfanView (version 3.97 and FORMATS plugin required): Based on the temporary file produced by Fits_push, any IrfanView command line processing can be performed, including sharpening, resampling etc., see the IrfanView documentation for a full description. Irfanview then saves the result as a JPG file with the quality level requested with the /jpgq option.

V2.2 20
Fixed a bug that might Prevent JPG webcasting to work if the IrfanView FITS pluging was not installed.
