We have a Hikvision DS-2CD2010-I IP camera with H.264 compression. We want our users to see the streams from two of these cameras on a web portal. Currently, the two cameras are connected to an Ethernet Switch along with a Raspberry Pi. The Pi converts the streams to FLV format and sends it to the EMS. Our cameras do not have a static IP. Is this the best way to do it, because there is a huge time lag and availability is always a question. Can we avoid using the Raspberry Pi?
Hi techq! “The Pi converts the streams to FLV format and sends it to the EMS. “ Does the Pi contains EMS? Can you elaborate on this? “Our cameras do not have a static IP.” It is not recommended that your cameras does not have a static IP. “Can we avoid using the Raspberry Pi?” I cannot answer this one.. Can you explain further what your project is all about and what Pi you are using? Thank you!
A. We are monitoring ATM rooms from a central portal. Each ATM room has four cameras. We want to stream data from the ATM rooms to the cloud. Can you tell us how to go about this using your solution? B. We have already done this using a Raspberry Pi. All the 4 cameras and the Pi are connected to a LAN. We read the streams, convert it to FLV and send to the EMS. This is not efficient. How to improve upon this?
