High definition video streaming

Endoscopic techniques are less invasive and are becoming more frequent in operating rooms. The smaller incisions generate less pain and facilitate a quick recovery. Cameras and monitors are used by the surgeon to visualize the operative field. The surgeons are hence more dependent on real time images.

Nowadays, a recent operating room in a hospital will typically include 10 cameras and monitors. Every medical device can be connected to the IP network and displayed on one or several monitors, inside or outside the operating room.

The images can be streamed to any rooms of the hospital, which allows collaboration with peer surgeons or pathologists. Students or other staff members do not need to be in the operating room and can be at a conference room location.

Transmission and acquisition of high-definition video over long coaxial cables

CoaXPress is a recent powerful standard providing a high speed interface between the camera and the PC frame grabber. On a highway, high speed cameras can take images in a burst. The sharper images will enhance license plate recognition accuracy.

High frequency real time triggering and exposure time adjustment to the low light situations can be accommodated.

High-definition low latency video streaming over IP for remote control

  • Remote control of cranes. In container terminals, ship-to-shore cranes are controlled remotely. The operators are located in a control station hundreds of meters from the crane and really enjoy the comfortable and ergonomic working position. They are sitting in an armchair, triggering movements with a joystick and buttons and looking at monitors showing images from the cameras. Motion sickness is no more a problem. Remote control made it possible to increase the speed of the crane and to decrease the container loading cycle time.
  • Remote control of drones. Drones can be equipped with high definition cameras for a more precise control and a more detailed inspection. The video streams can be encoded onboard and streamed over the Wi-Fi network to the ground station where they will be processed and archived.

High-definition low latency video streaming over IP

Example: Critical infrastructure

  • Off-shore drilling platforms
  • Oil, gas production, pipelines
  • Petrochemical refineries
  • Power plants
  • Mining
  • Factories / manufacturing plants

High-definition low latency video streaming over IP for factory surveillance

In a manufacturing workshop, up to 40 cameras and encoders can be connected to the local (specific) IP network. Any image stream can be displayed on any monitor connected to the network. An operator can monitor or control several machines at the same time.

The 2 MPixels camera and a powerful lens allow the operator to see the sharpest details of the scene. The comfort and the safety of the operator is improved as they can sit far away from the hazardous working area.

High-definition low latency video streaming over IP on oil rigs

Surveillance of critical infrastructure: Drilling is a hazardous operation and the presence of workers in the nearby should be avoided on the drilling floor, close to the turntable.

Tele-operated solutions allow to ensure the safety of operators in hazardous or isolated locations, like oil rigs. It is often hard to find people willing to work in such places and, in the future, one can also imagine unmanned platforms operated from the shore.

High-definition low latency video streaming over IP in mines

In open pit mines, unmanned trucks or excavators can be controlled safely from a remote location. The operators we can now benefit from the air conditioning and a reduced ambient noise. As a consequence, operator fatigue is reduced, with a direct influence on the reduction of errors and downtime in daily operations.
