In a fast-moving world, wouldn’t it be nice to be able to capture actions from a first-person point of view, even if you aren’t present, and watch it via live streaming? Applying this to the security industry, in a variety of verticals, a more proactive and efficient approach to safety and security can be developed when added to a layered security plan.
Taking pride in pioneering the concept of point-of-view video technology, V.I.O. enables viewers to become a part of the “live” action. With the recent launch of a rugged, mountable and wearable camera that provides flexible usage with RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol), the Steam takes this concept a bit further, enabling viewers to become a part of the action as the action takes place. This small camera also has the ability to stream video from any environment with advanced, high-definition video of vibrant color and superior camera control.
The Stream has an open API, which allows developers to customize the camera, and the Stream’s technology can be integrated into existing applications. Because of this, the Stream provides practical applications for law enforcement, medical facilities, and military, among other verticals within the security market.
Key features of Stream:
- Powerful and compact with a variety of static, vehicle and body-worn mounts;
- Wi-Fi enabled;
- RTSP streaming;
- Record to SD card;
- HTTP and XML-based API;
- Waterproof, dustproof and shockproof durability; and
- Ruggedized form factor meeting IP67 environmental standards.
