We are interested in a Windows application that will enable our existing software program to view live footage from an IP camera.
At the moment our software will show live footage from a camera via a USB video grabber or video card. The cameras our system is designed for are drain surveying cameras, so they are producing a composite PAL signal. The signal is then converted using a video grabbing device, our software, once set to this device, allows viewing of the live video and saving the video files in a compressed format using available codecs.
Some camera manufacturers are now providing an IP camera function. We have seen a demonstration of this and what is happening is that the video can be viewed on a browser via RTSP. We are not experts on the technicalities of this but we think the video signal is going to a Wireless Access Point or a Router, unfortunately this is all hidden away in a box so we're guessing. All we know is the live video signal is being streamed and can be picked up wirelessly via a PC, tablet or phone.
We want a piece of software that can be integrated with our existing software to pick up that stream and display on the video pane within our software. That's all it needs to do. We just want to be able to view that live stream, our software can then record it and compress it. Our software is in C# so we guess it would be useful if this add on were written in the same language. Anything written for us would need to be integrated into the existing software by that software's developer.
We will be getting more information from one manufacturer but we don't want to create something that is bespoke for one system, we are looking for something that will pick up any streaming video signal within range, if at all possible.
Questions are welcomed, especially ones that we can direct at the manufacturers.
