MariTime HDMI version 6.x.x with Phidget version 2.1.8

A key software component for MariTime is the software modules that communicate with the Phidget interface board in the Control Box. For a long time MariTime has used Phidget version 2.1.6, but an upgrade to version 2.1.8 is now necessary. (Actually, long overdue...)

The following installation file will install MariTime version 6 and the new Phidget modules.

Windows Defender or some other malware program may complain, but these files are OK!


Recent development version compile date 2020-01-09

Custom development version:


Special compile 2023-05-12

Just download this .exe and place beside any older version in the relevant folder.
Since the  .exe:s have different file names they can "co exist"

Preliminary user manual for above version

Still using DV/FireWire version of MariTime?

This old version of MariTime will probably keep on working "as-is" for the foreseeable future.
However, MariTime has been re-written to work with the modern HD/HDMI video cameras, and all development is happening on the HDMI version.
You are encouraged to upgrade, but be aware that you will be charged an upgrade-fee.
Please contact me for further information about this!

MariTime Remote Start Client

This is a "preview" of the Remote Start client

Before downloading/testing the client, you are recommended to read this introductory document:

Testing MariTime remote client (.pdf)

Below is a link to an installation package for the remote client
MariTime Remote start client

NB! If you are using MariTime version 5 (or earlier) you must not install the Remote client on the same PC.
MariTime and thew Remote start client use different versions of the Phidget drivers, and this can lead to problems!

(Phidget is the hardware used in the Control Box)

Sample Video files

If you want to try out MarTime you can download the free version (see below) and try it with some of the actual race video files here:



MariTime installation files

The MariTime program comes in two different versions:

  1. The free version, so named because it is free.
    It does however have limitied functionality, i.e. it does not capture anything, but will perform all post-heat processing functions
  2. The full version.
    It is not free, and is also dependant on the presence of a Control Box to function properly

Both the installation files below are single .exe files compiled with the Inno setup compiler.

They have been thorougly checked  for viruses being submitted to

N.B It seems that Avast antivirus can give an alarm on these files when downloaded.

I found the following explanation:

DomainRep is a new feature of Avast, so let me explain a bit. It blocks EXE files downloads if these conditions are *all* met:
1. The file is not prevalent enough, ie. not enough Avast users launched the file yet,
2. The domain is not prevalent enough, ie. not enough Avast users downloaded (any) EXE files from the domain yet,
3. The file is not signed or Avast does not trust the signature.


MariTime intermediate files (version 5)


If the need arises (and it propably does during the testing period..) for expedited updated .exe. versions  they will be placed here below.
These .exe files will have the version number included in the .exe file name. This means that such an .exe can be placed (and executed)  beside the original .exe in the folder created by the installation.

MariTime_HDMI version 192   N.B this .exe is "packaged" as a .zip file, Just unzip and copy

The CantIme system has the following status:

No development work is presently performed.
I have not received any signals of an interest for an interest in a HDMIconversion of this product.
Such a conversion is certainly possible, but given the rather small nu,mbers of users,
the financing of such an undertaking is a problem.


For current users of the DV/Firewire version, here are some useful files:

CaniTime latest .exe

N.B the the files above are really .exe files, but my CMS forces me to rename them as .exx
So before use please rename them back to .exe!
