Grab Auto-Download Software for Cambrionix


File management for dozens of SD cards simultaneously has never been easier. Simultaneously download to your computer or delete content across all cards to save time.

Grab is free to use with two cameras in conjunction with our PowerPad product (15-port or 8-port versions). Purchase the PowerPad License for Grab Softwareto use with all 8- or 15-ports. Grab Software is a free trial for up to two cameras. 

      • Grab is an automated piece of download software that allows for quick and easy file management of multiple SD cards simultaneously when used with the PowerPad. Couple it with the CamDo Bullet to make creating professional time slice videos much simpler and quicker.

        Grab is used with the separately available PowerPad (8S and 15S versions), which allows you to continuously power up to 8 or 15 cameras and is also capable of connecting all cameras to a computer through a single USB port for downloading files from the SD card at up to 480Mb per second. The host computer sees each camera’s SD card and mounts them as individual disks.

        The Grab software uses the PowerPad to let you manage these individual disks to transfer files from the SD card to the host computer before clearing the SD card to greatly increase memory capacity. This allows the use of multiple cameras for extended shoots in a much more efficient way.

        Note: The Grab Software is only compatible with Windows operating systems.
