A customer recently contacted CCTV Camera Pros and had the following questions related to how to setup CCTV cameras for live website video streaming.
I am looking to set up a live web feed from my beach house to my web site. I am looking to find out what I would need to do this. Below are some of the requirements I am looking at.
1. Outdoor Camera with long range lens (was thinking a box camera with 60mm)
2. Some kind of specialized video server that can enable me to push data directly to LIvestream or Ustream
3. Would prefer .264 or MPEG4
I can get power and to the camera so either an analog or IP camera is fine. I also have the connection to high speed internet connection. I would prefer not to use a full PC as I will only have access to the equipment every 4 months or so. Also Power is Extremely expensive so I am looking for something efficient.
My recommendations for this customer:
Here are two option for you to consider. The first does require a PC and uses a service like uStream or Livestream to broadcast. This option should be used if you expect to have more that a few simultaneous users viewing the video stream at the same time.
Please take a look at this article I wrote that explains how to use CCTV cameras for live website video streaming using services such as uStream or Livestream.
A high resolution box camera in an outdoor housing is a good choice. Here are two box cameras for you to consider:
Here is a weatherproof IR camera (built in night vision) that is also worth considering:
The second option works very well for websites that do not expect to have a lot of users viewing the video at the same time. This option uses an IP camera and does not require a PC.
The setup can be found in this article "How to Embed IP camera live video in a webpage".
Please let us know if we can help further.
