Easier-to-get traffic information from TOYA, thanks to Axis network cameras
Axis network cameras are revolutionizing transportation in Polish cities
“We’d been looking for solutions that would ensure quality video streaming for TV services. We had no doubt about the choice of cameras – Axis Communications cameras equipped with the CamStreamer application were the only ones that fully answered our needs, and their integration with the existing system ran smoothly thanks to TOYA’s internal R&D department.” Michał Dalecki, Research and Development TOYA.
TOYA is one of the largest CATV operators in Poland. The company, which from the beginning has based its services on innovative technological solutions, delivers digital TV, Internet and telephone services to over 170 thousand households. One of the major challenges the company has faced so far is providing the people of Łódź, Piotrków Trybunalski, Przemyśl, Pabianice, Mysłowice and Kutno with live traffic news and an overview of the biggest crossroads and the most critical areas of their city. Soon the number of cities with cameras is due to rise and include Kraków and Kołobrzeg amongst others.
The assumptions of the project were fulfilled thanks to the use of network cameras that stream live video using specifically designed TOYA applications. Because of their supreme video quality, weather resistance and available functionalities Axis Communications cameras (AXIS P1425-E/P1425-LE and AXIS M1145) were chosen by TOYA with the CamStreamer application – the only application that performs its functions according to long established standards in TV industry (MPEG-TS video stream generated by CamStreamer). TOYA’s inner R&D department was responsible for the integration of the cameras with existing systems, and the project was successfully completed in a relatively short time.
With their wide configuration capabilities and innovative functions Axis cameras provide high quality video. Accurate camera optics and video dynamic range enable effective monitoring of the traffic, while the entire system is based on the CamStreamer application. The camera system is cost effective and relatively easyto install and manage. Also, it does not require high computing power for the transcoding of video streams available from different platforms (Apple iOS, Android, PC, macOS, STB 3G).
