Local LE agency has a large incident command vehicle that presently has a standard 4CIF composite camera and 5.5-165mm motorized zoom lens in a traditional Pelco standard housing atop a Pelco Pan/Tilt motor. The whole assembly is mounted on an extendable mast mounted on the rear of the vehicle.
They want to go IP, obviously Mega-Pixel resolution, but they require the extreme zoom ability afforded them by their current installation. Any ideas to a comparable offering?
As a side note, this vehicle has a single 40" LCD monitor and 6 computers on board that vie for use of this screen. Presently, they employ a complex routine of using a video switcher and changing the input on the monitor to accommodate these views. Any ideas on how to stream line this? I was actually contemplating some sort of scenario that could take the VGA output and put it into a video encoder, and displaying the different computers as if they were cameras in an IPVMS multi-view environment. I have found some virtual display offerings, one is geared toward class room computer monitoring. Again, thoughts?
