Transportation agencies often have hundreds, if not thousands, of cameras on highways, intersections, ramps and portable trailers that are connected back to a central location and provide valuable video data about the conditions on the roadways. This data is invaluable to the transportation engineers to help manage incidents and planned events. However, historically access to these video streams outside the closed network has been difficult, if not impossible, due to security requirements and wide ranging technologies.
The Skyline OneView allows transportation agencies to efficiently and securely share live video streams with large groups of consumers, internal stakeholders, media and partner agencies.
State, city and local transportation agencies can utilize varying camera types (analog and IP) and have groups of cameras scattered across multiple secure sub-networks and organizations. Valuable streaming video can come from a variety of existing source cameras, including those used for fixed mount traffic, intersection/signal timing, RWIS, mobile cameras, security and more.
The Skyline Video OneView normalizes and distributes streaming video from cameras spread across a city, state or region. The video network can reside in a single organization’s network or be hosted centrally in secure hosting site. Skyline will work with your agency(s) to determine the best architecture depending upon the distribution, type and location of cameras and the available bandwidth. Skyline’s approach allows an agency to maximize its existing video investment while protecting the integrity of networks and minimizing bandwidth requirements.
Public and Partners:
Agencies are no longer limited to sharing still images with the public. Transportation agencies can now share live streaming video to their public facing websites, allowing thousands of simultaneous users to see a complete and real-time picture of what is happening on the roadways.
Interagency management of transportation issues is increasingly important. Source agencies can easily share interoperable video with partners and partners can share video back. Each source agency provides permissions to partners to view video and while retaining PTZ control. No modifications are required to either agency’s current video networks/systems. Skyline fills the gap between disparate video networks and provides agencies greater ability to coordinate efforts.
As your agency increases the number of cameras in your video network, the Skyline OneView scales easily. An agency is not limited in the number of cameras or the types of manufacturers in its video network. Additionally, there are virtually no limits to the number of cameras that can be share from partner agencies.
Secure & Reliable:
The Skyline OneView acts as a secure buffer between your video assets and any video consumers outside your network, meaning an agency’s ITS cameras will never be directly accessed by outside viewers. The OneView utilizes standard network security practices to restrict access to the video streams while still maintaining a flexible, scalable, and simple way to provide consumers with access to your video. Further, the OneView provides you with a simple way to disable video to any user group with the click of a button, giving you complete security and control over your video distribution
