    A customer recently contacting CCTV Camera Pros and asked the following in regards to setting up CCTV cameras for a live Internet video webcast:

    I'm looking to live webcast a kids sporting event. We came to the conclusion

    we would probably need to use a standard analog CCTV camera (non-IP based) in

    order to allow a camera man to follow the action and control zooming. a PTZ

    IP cam would just be too slow to follow the live action.

    Then looking to run the output from the camera (probably RCA) to a video

    server for encoding and pushing out live feed to a data center sever for

    distribution to users.

    What would you suggest for this application? I'm looking for a video server

    with the following:

    - Analog (RCA) Input

    - Encode MPEG – Prefer H.264 MPEG-4

    - Server Push – Pushes outgoing signal, no need for unblocking ports / port

    forwarding.

    CCTV Camera Pros replied:

    Thank You for contacting CCTV Camera Pros. We have a lot of folks use our equipment in conjunction with streaming services like uStream or Live Stream.

    Please check out these pages:

    This setup uses our BIPRO-S600VF outdoor CCTV camera which you can find here:

    http://www.cctvcamerapros.com/Outdoor-CCTV-Camera-p/bipro-s600vf12.htm

    You can view the uStream setup information that this customer used here:

    Please let us know if we can help further.

    The customer followed up with these questions:

    For clarification do your video servers like the Vivotek-VS7100 video encoder "push" the video feed out? Or do you need to do the old port forwarding to make it available?

    CCTV Camera Pros replied:

    No. Actually you do not use our video servers at all with this type of application. You need to use an RCA to USB video capture device for a PC. Then you run the streaming services' broadcasting software on the PC to transmit the video to the streaming service (such as uSTream).

    Check out this article. I think it will help you.

    And no you do not need to manually setup port forwarding to use services like uStream, LiveStream, and Justin.tv.

    Let us know if we can help further.
