Vaddio Launches IP Video Streaming Support for ClearVIEW HD-USB Cameras
Vaddio, the global leader in robotic PTZ cameras and camera control systems, announces a major software update to the ClearVIEW HD-USB PTZ camera. In addition to the current USB streaming, version 2.0 allows for IP HD video streaming and remote PTZ camera control through the Ethernet network interface. Integrators now have the design flexibility to choose between USB or Network streaming – all in one device.
Streaming Protocols supported are Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP) and HTTP Live Streaming (HLS). Encoding for video will be H.264 (Main Profile) and the audio encoding will be AAC. Streaming adaptive network bandwidth allocation is supported with Adaptive Bitrate technology by detecting a user’s bandwidth and CPU capacity in real time and adjusting the quality of a video stream accordingly. This results in a smoother more life-like motion streaming experience. Supported resolutions include both SD and HD high definition resolutions up to 1080p.
“We have been asked by our integrators for a number of years to build IP video streaming into our camera systems,” explained CEO of Vaddio, Rob Sheeley. “We also knew that if we were to give them streaming, we would also have to give them remote IP PTZ camera control as well. Now they can control the camera from wherever they are watching the stream. This latest free software update to the ClearVIEW USB PTZ camera does all this and more.”
