The past decade has seen a tremendous growth in the use of IP technologies. We are now in constant contact with devices that can share information on a network, and the array of possibilities this offers is almost infinite.
One industry that has had some great interest in the use of IP technology is the field of video surveillance. Video cameras and DVRs are now being replaced by network cameras that encode the images it captures in order to stream them over the network. Amongst the benefits of this shift from the analog to the digital world is the increased flexibility regarding archiving, indexing and viewing of video streams.
This presentation will review some basic network programming concepts and will serve as a crash-course into the world of IP video security. We will detail the tools of the trade and describe the daily challenges we face when it comes to integrating IP cameras in large-scale, professional video surveillance software.
