Railpage has acquired an additional 2 PTZ cameras with ONVIF API programming interface compliant. These should arrive in the next two weeks.
The plan is to place one of these cameras at Gheringhap and one at Albion. Both are/will be connected to the Melbourne Wireless backbone. (Gheringhap is already, Albion just waiting for the roof pole install)
What does this mean? It means that if Michael puts the time in it is possible to control the camera view from RP!
I will load some pre-sets and the users could select from a drop down box of pre-sets and the camera would respond to the request to change direction. This could be to the up end or down end of Gheringhap Loop or as is the case for Albion, the BG/SG, Albion railway station or looking toward sunshine.
I also have an IPCAM which has SIP capability. The camera can call you when a train is approaching and send the video to a video compliant SIP device over the IP network.!!
I am sure we will need some function testers so stay tuned.
