hi,

we want to get IP Camera's [3 of them, 3 different offices at different locations] to stream what they are seeying into sharepoint portal.
the content doesnt need to be saved on a server, only Live stream and display it on sharepoint is necessary.
also, we want to be able to have multiple connections looking at it in the same time.
lets say, about 10 connections, 20 connections viewing.
the picture quality is not so important, it doesnt have to be High Quality, but should be average\Ok.

i want to know the steps i should take in order to do it.
IP camera equipment in 3 different offices - streaming to a sharepoint web Portal all together.
and multiple connections should be able to access it through sharepoint.

any ideas? information would be much appreciated.

thanks.

This isn't something that SharePoint would interact with directly. This content should be displayed using iFrames on the SharePoint site.

The IP cameras are likely to have a default web page they stream to, and you'd simply iFrame to this. This can be done by editing the HTML in a Content Editor Web Part or using the Page Viewer Web Part (which just renders a iFrame to the URL you specify).

what do you mean when you say the IP Cameras are likely to have a default web page they stream to.
to where? locally?
accessed by http://ipaddress:port  [this is the default web page]
cause we're going to have them in 3 different locations, 3 different routers so i'm wandering how we will "iframe" \ connect to them through sharepoint?
what is the target?
i want to understand how i will get them to stream on my sharepoint.

meaning: [target example]
"iframe" To: http://externalipaddress:port
[port forwarding will direct me to the camera itself and stream it]
and then, i could see it through my sharepoint web page (if configured correctly)?

what do you think will be the limit of simultaneous connections?
to view these 3 IP Cameras at the same time.

If this data were streamed into SharePoint it would not be handled well. That's not what SharePoint does.

So, you fake it by creating iFrames on the SharePoint page to show the content. The video images never touch the SharePoint server in reality, the stream is between the client browser and the web site hosting the video.

I just googled the topic, and what I'm talking about is standard functionality for such cameras;

Take a look at your camera documentation for details of the address to be used for the iFrame.
