IndigoVision, leading manufacturer of security management systems, has made it possible for unlimited clients to view remote cameras over restricted bandwidth connections such as satellite links.
This powerful feature allows multiple simultaneous client views of a camera from a low bandwidth, remote location. Only a single stream of video is sent from each IndigoVision camera at any one time over the low bandwidth part of the network, passing it on to as many viewers as required. Seamless PTZ control is provided automatically for all clients viewing the stream.
IndigoVision’s integrated IP Video surveillance system makes it possible to monitor sites in remote locations, using wide area networks and satellite links. The lower bandwidth used for remote monitoring can reduce the number of possible viewers per camera, but IndigoVision clients are now able to share the stream from any camera with many viewers simultaneously, using SMS4TM Release 4’s Camera Proxy facility.
IndigoVision Head of Engineering Alex Swanson commented: “Camera Proxy transforms the use of remote and satellite connections to cameras, and will open new possibilities for users. We’re very pleased to offer it as part of this release.”
IndigoVision’s Camera Proxy capability is included in release 4 of SMS4TM management software, which can be accessed through IndigoVision’s Software Upgrade Program (SUP).
SMS4TM is IndigoVision’s complete suite of management software, controlling all hardware to put the user in the driving seat. SMS4TM release 4 is the latest evolution of the software towards full situation management.
