Advanced CBR for Better Image Quality with Limited Bandwidth

Since surveillance camera images are streamed over a network, it certainly makes sense to configure the cameras to use CBR (constant bit rate), which requires setting the maximum bit rate (5 Mbps, for example).However, don’t make the mistake of assuming that CBR can always guarantee good image transmission in a limited bandwidth environment.


How to choose an outdoor IP camera

CCTV surveillance cameras are now a common sight in cities around the world, with cameras used at major intersections to catch speeders and would-be runners of red lights. However, as many drivers have learned, outdoor cameras have a high failure rate, and consequently only a fraction of the cameras installed are
actually operational.


Methods for Embedding Video Streaming in SCADA Systems

In industrial automation systems, SCADA/HMI plays an important role in remote monitoring and control. Accompanied by the popularity of IP video surveillance solutions, there is a trend towards using IP video with SCADA/HMI systems to augment remote monitoring since seeing the field site situation is more comprehensible and convincing than reading alarm messages displayed on a screen


IP Video Surveillance in Power Substations

Power lines deliver electricity from the plant to the power substations where it is converted before being distributed to the local community. It is therefore imperative that power substations are constantly monitored for safety and maintenance as they are often located near or in a populated area. This white paper explains the benefits of real-time video monitoring and IP video technology, as well as factors to consider in deploying an optimal IP video surveillance system for a power substation.


Real-time Video Monitoring Increases the Efficiency of SCADA

Traditional SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) systems have been an important part of automation control systems for many years, and they are designed to monitor and control the status of devices and processes. A new trend is to integrate real-time video surveillance into SCADA systems to give system operators a more powerful tool for managing their processes.


Video Transmission in TMS

Video cameras play an important role in providing administrators of modern Transportation Management Systems with real-time information. Unlike other types of detectors and sensors—which only provide digital data—cameras provide real-time images of traffic situations, giving administrators a valuable tool for analyzing complicated traffic patterns and making snap decisions.
