Title
(EN) METHODS AND SYSTEMS FOR NETWORKED CAMERA CONTROL
(FR) PROCEDES ET SYSTEMES POUR UNE COMMANDE DE CAMERA RELIEE A UN RESEAU
Abstract
(EN) Methods and systems for providing fluid real-time camera control of at least one camera to at least one network user via a network including the internet. A control pad or area can be provided to camera users via an application or applet that can be calibrated to provide fluid camera control. Compressed or uncompressed analog. digital, or streaming video and audio data can also be provided to the users to allow real-time low latency continuous audio/visual feedback. Multiple camera users can obtain control of a camera using a dynamic queuing technique that can allow single user camera control for certain time intervals. An administrator can establish user camera control parameters including camera control intervals for subscriber users versus non-subscriber users, camera usurping by an administrator, elimination of camera control privileges for a user, and denial of camera control requests by a user.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des procédés et des systèmes qui assurent la commande d'une caméra en temps réel de manière continue pour au moins une caméra vers au moins un utilisateur de réseau via un réseau comprenant l'Internet. Un bloc ou une zone de commande peut être fourni aux utilisateurs de caméra via une application ou un applet qui peut être étalonné pour assurer la commande de caméra de manière continue. Des données analogiques, numériques, de flux audio ou vidéo comprimées ou non comprimées peuvent également être fournies aux utilisateurs pour permettre une rétroaction audio/visuelle continue à faible temps de latence en temps réel. Des utilisateurs de caméra multiples peuvent disposer de la commande d'une caméra au moyen d'une technique de mise en file d'attente qui peut permettre une commande de caméra d'utilisateur unique pendant certains intervalles de temps. Un administrateur peut établir des paramètres de commande de caméra d'utilisateur comprenant des intervalles de commande de caméra pour des utilisateurs abonnés par rapport à des utilisateurs non abonnés, l'usurpation de caméra par un administrateur, l'élimination des privilèges de commande de caméra pour un utilisateur et le refus de requêtes de commande de caméra par un utilisateur.
