Live Streaming Video Provides Public View of Orca Whale

Milestone Systems : 10 August, 2010  (Application Story)
An Axis high definition IP camera running on Milestone XProtect video management software is providing the ability for the public to view an Orca Whale held in Holland without disturbing the animal's environment
Live Streaming Video Provides Public View of Orca Whale


Milestone XProtect open platform IP Video management software is being used to record and archive video of the orca whale called Morgan, while he is at the Dutch ‘Dolfinarium’ located in Harderwijk. Secured by Web, a Certified Milestone Partner, has made the innovative solution so the curious public can see live video streaming from an Axis high definition network camera, without having to compromise the animal’s need for peaceful surroundings. For some time now, the orca whale named Morgan has resided in the Dutch aquarium called Dolfinarium, and his stay is a special event. The killer whale has been off-limits to viewing by the public out of consideration for the animal's well-being, which is a top priority at the facility, but in order to meet the tremendous interest in Morgan, the aquarium decided to show live streaming video to the visitors of the park. The Dolfinarium’s motto “Meet the Stars of the Sea†thereby got a boost from state-of-the-art technology. The initiative came from the Dolfinarium, and was implemented by Secured by Web whose IP Video expertise ensured the idea got off the ground. The Dolfinarium had already been using analog cameras for observation of their other animals, but Secured by Web selected the Axis P3344-VE network camera to operate over the orca’s basin because it provides higher quality HDTV images. This Axis camera was installed above the pool and another camera underwater in the pool itself was connected to an Axis video encoder to provide more live streaming images. Morgan is being monitored constantly by professional caretakers. The clear HD camera images are recorded and archived in XProtect Video Management Software from Milestone Systems, which provides video documentation and the Smart Client viewing interface to keep track of the whale’s well-being and progress.
