Quality Axis IP cameras in combination with flexible CamStreamer software represent excellent internet broadcasting solution
“With eight Axis HD IP cameras and CamStreamer, the WebCam.NL YouTube channel has had nearly 1.7 million views and over 2,000 people channel subscriptions in approximately six months. That’s a huge success.” Peter Austin of Unlimited Visions BV (the operator of WebCam.NL).
WebCam.NL, which specializes in streaming video content from public spaces, has delivered and installed over 150 Axis HD (PTZ) IP cameras in the Netherlands and abroad. Due to high demand for this service, WebCam.NL sought a suitable secondary technical solution for live streaming. Thus far, the WebCam.NL service has achieved an average of 30,000 visits per day.
WebCam.NL decided to use the ACAP (AXIS Camera Application Platform) software CamStreamer developed by the Czech brand NetRex as an efficient solution based on Axis cameras. CamStreamer meets all of the requirements for a secondary streaming platform because it easily connects Axis cameras to the YouTube Live service, thus using Google servers to bring high quality HD video streaming to viewers worldwide.
WebCam.NL uses 720p or 1080p Axis HD cameras to show live streams from famous tourist locations such as Dam square in Amsterdam, windmills in Zaanse Schans, and several harbors in the Netherlands and abroad. WebCam.NL has sold and installed over 300+ AXIS (HD) IP cameras. In addition to live streams, some WebCam.NL clients use the built-in motion detection software for surveillance purposes, with the CamStreamer application on an Axis camera to convert camera video streams into a format that is compatible with RTMP protocol (Real Time Messaging Protocol) streaming platforms.
