Most StormVue NGX usage scenarios will involve embedding it into a web page but this software can also run as a standalone desktop application. For company internal or home network use, data files can be uploaded to and accessed directly via a network disk. This eliminates the requirement for a web server and enables users to remotely monitor their lightning detection system - in real-time - in most types of network environments.

StormVue NGX is an Adobe Flash application. It obtains data from the Data Server inter-process communication (IPC) add-on for NexStorm which runs under Windows.

Data Server will continuously transmit updated lightning information to the Internet or a network disk, enabling a fast 4 second update rate.

With StormVue NGX you can actually watch lightning online as it happens!
