Title: REMOTE SECURITY CAMERA BANDWIDTH OPTIMISATION
Abstract:
A security camera comprising an image capturing arrangement for capturing image data, a non-transitory memory arrangement for storing the captured image data, a transceiver to receive instructions and transmit captured image data to a remote terminal, wherein a processor is in communication with the image capturing arrangement, the memory arrangement and the transceiver and is adapted to apportion the memory arrangement into a short-term image buffer for storing compressed image data and a long-term image database for storing uncompressed image data, and transmits, to a remote terminal, the compressed image data from the buffer in accordance with a selectable threshold of a transmission channel and, upon receipt of instruction from said remote terminal, transmits the uncompressed image data from the database such that the bandwidth usage of the transmission channel is optimisable by the camera allowing selective transmission of compressed and/or uncompressed image data during security monitoring using the camera.
