Surveilance Video Streaming

  • An advanced platform with live video streaming from a network of surveillance cameras
  • A scalable database that saves video recordings in real time
  • Access control down to specific camera to provide maximum data security

Context

This project was for a company based in the United States of America that serves law enforcement market globally supplying wearable video cameras with supporting management software.

Our customer intended to launch an additional product, which was a surveillance system combining area observation via a set of video cameras, backed up with software that intelligently managed the camera network. The cameras were sourced from a Taiwanese manufacturer, with whom our customer formed a partnership. Now all they needed was a software company which could develop the supporting software. Based on a previous collaboration with Itransition that was very successful, they approached us again to develop the application.

Solution

The supporting software application was required to relay streamed video in real-time directly to any security personnel on duty, such as security guards or watchmen, who could then act on any security breach identified by the LE4G surveillance cameras. Itransition delivered a web-portal written mainly in Python and based on a Django framework. A key feature, apart from real-time recording and live streaming, was a sophisticated access management component, maximizing security as per the customer's requirements.

Live Streaming

The LE4G cameras with built-in Wi-Fi modules connect to a single server. End users obtain a real-time view of what the cameras are recording streamed without buffering delays via the portal. Python and C++. were used as the development languages for the business logic. NginX technology was employed for the video load balancing, which made the application both fast and predictable, with high potential scalability.

Video Recording in Real-time

In addition to the real-time streaming, security personnel have the ability to edit and save video clips. The streamed video is stored in a database for retrieval and review. Where required, the end-user can store camera shooting it locally as a separate video file for further references.

Access Management

The customer required a robust access management system where the administrator could grant access at an individual level to one or more specific cameras. The access management module plugs into the video file management and the video streaming software integrated into the web portal.

Results

Companies that purchase our customer’s product have constant and uninterrupted video streaming, which is relayed from their preferred configuration of surveillance camera network. Access to the output from these cameras is strictly controlled via the management module. Itransition ensured that all the client's requirements were met, so that the final product was both viable and marketable.
