The clocks changed this weekend, it’s warming up and the lambing season has begun! Using the latest IP video technology, our Streamdays HD live streaming service shows crisp 24/7 live footage from lambing barns across various sites in the UK, providing unique views of these cute animals being born. It’s another example of how IP cameras are being used over and above the purpose of CCTV or security.
Not only do the live lambing cameras provide a low-cost education tool for children and adults, it is also a tool for farms and activity centres for increasing online exposure and visitor numbers.
Today’s story of a Russian website showing UK companies’ and people’s personal cameras, see http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-30121159, shows how important it is to secure access to your cameras. Not protecting access to your cameras is like leaving the door of your house open. At some point you will get unwanted visitors. There is no need for this risk, keeping safe is easy. Just follow the basic rules:
Ever thought about live streaming an event? Not sure what is required? Not convinced it’s worth the effort and resources?
Let us give you a live case study with some marketing insights that may blow your mind … and barely touch your pocket.
Panasonic’s now end-of-line BB-HCM735 was one of the best-selling network cameras in their home/office range, offering very decent VGA resolution footage in an outdoor-ready casing with pan/tilt movement and 2-way audio, while still being very cost-effective. Now that this camera has been discontinued, we’ve taken a look at its replacement; the Panasonic i-Pro WV-SW175. Does this camera still offer the same good value as its predecessor?
First things first, let’s see some sample footage from the camera.
Miami’s WDNA Serious Jazz radio station is now being streamed live to the web with Streamdays.
Eager to attract more website visitors and listeners, 88.9FM WDNA is using an Axis camera to let listeners look inside the studio whilst programmes are live on air. Powered by Streamdays, our video streaming service, smooth camera footage is being broadcast on the web at 30 images per second for a real-time experience.
Known as South Florida’s premier jazz music station, WDNA first aired in 1977 with a mission to provide quality, public-centric music, arts and cultural programming. With the new live radio webcam, WDNA lets its fans in with a look behind the scenes, encouraging greater public engagement.
WDNA’s Technical Operations & Production Manager said: “People love taking a peek into the studio operations. We were one of the first radio stations in the 90’s to have a “studiocam,” and it was time to upgrade from a still picture to live video.”
With 75,000 listeners per week on average, the WDNA radio station webcam may get very busy indeed.
