- Cisco Employee,
I have a VAR willing to begin installing our PVC2300.
But they want to know if, with our IP cameras, they can do what is possible with Axis IP cameras.
The challenge is to display the camera video on a web page and they want to know how to get the camera video script for that.
Thanks for your help.
Stephanie Reaves, has posted the application programmers interface (API) for the cameras see the following URL, check out the link below
Our IP Cameras have a built in web server. So if you set an alternate TCP port on the PVC2300 and built the NAT rule for it on the router, you can get something like this to work:
http://172.18.218.234:1024/video.htm and it looks like the attachment I share as camera_web_1
(so this does carry with it the web page frames)
If they want to monitor up to 16 cameras using our free SWVMS monitoring utility, just upgrade the PVC2300 to FW version 1.0.1 (also free) and download the SWVMS16 SW in the same place you find the FW. Did I mention its free?
It looks like this (attached camera_web_2.gif)
You can also use Apple QT, VLC Media Player, etc to view the video in HTTP or RTSP (enable RTSP on the camera and forward port 554 to the camera and watch it from a mobile 3GPP device using rtsp:///mobile.sdp )
Hope this helps.
