Until recent times Webcam Viewer functionality has been limited to PC only. By utilising the capabilities of the AGP and Webcam Viewer applications we can now provide a significant amount of functionality on the optiPoint Series phones via the DSM or APM.The application also has a Web Administration feature, which allows the administrator to configure the list of webcam feeds which the users can select from .
Operational Overview :
- The Webcam Viewer application on the phone interacts with the server using XML. The server provides XML to the phone which the application renders into a screen for the user to interact with. The user’s interaction with the phone results in key-value pairs being passed back to the server for processing.
- The XML retuned to the phone contains an URL.This URL points to an application on a server with a webcam.
- The phone connects to the URL and this causes the application to grab an image from the webcam and returns this in an image stream to the phone.
- The XML pages are pushed to the phone after certain regular intervals which is configured by the user.
- Select Views
User can select a particular feed for viewing from the list of available feeds.
- Multiple Views
User can view feeds from 4 different locations on the APM screen at the sametime and can zoom the desired feed.
User can cycle through selected feeds.
User can set refresh-rate of feeds form 5 to 60 seconds.
Allows easy configuration of list webcam feeds by adding,editing and deleting location names and their URL addresses.
