Ultra Low Bandwidth Wireless System Enables Remote Live and Recorded Viewing of Helmet Cameras
Available from Boundless Security Systems, Inc.
Boundless’ ultra low bandwidth, many-function, Multi-Stream Video Server provides a video base station on each oil rig or vehicle. It digitizes four CCTV cameras, (opt) decodes video from four wireless helmet IP-cameras, forms many different video streams simultaneously for every camera, MPEG-4 compresses, internally records video with better quality than can be sent live, and communicates live and recorded video on demand. Boundless’ Media Server can be included within the Multi-Stream Video Server to provide local viewing in a browser by workers on the rig.
A wireless IP-camera on a rig worker’s or officer's helmet can give live video closeups of job sites to HQ and local crews. Four helmet cameras can be supported by each Multi-Stream Video Server with Transcode Option. High bandwidth IP-video is decoded then many-stream encoded to provide 100:1 range of bandwidths. Multiple Multi-Stream Video Servers can provide more cameras. A panic button on the helmet can flag video and summon help.
Boundless’ cloud-based, Media Server converts live and recorded video into a format for viewing in a browser by many distant viewers at once with only a single load on the uplink, implements Boundless’ opt. Rapid Notification System, and provides an opt. virtual private network for Boundless’ Multi-Stream Video Servers behind firewalls.
