Is UVC Control the best option for "far end camera control"?

Posted by Paul Richards on Dec 18, 2014 1:44:00 PM

Good morning Web Conferencing Professionals,

I wanted to share an eye opening web conference call I had today with a company called "SecureVideo". SecureVideo.Com provides HIPAA compliant video conferencing software based off the VSee conferencing engine. Our goal was to test the Remote PTZ Control capabilities for the HuddleCamHD camera line. The first camera we tested was the HuddleCamHD 12X which we had connected via USB 3.0. We found the PTZ Controls worked perfected and pop up right in the video window using Secure Video. 

What is UVC?

"The USB video device class (also USB video class or UVC)... Webcams were among the first devices to support the UVC standard and they are currently the most popular UVC devices... UVC v1.1 support transmission of compressed video streams, including MPEG-2 TSH.264MPEG-4 SL SMPTE VC1 and MJPEG" - Wikipedia

Compatible Cameras for Remote PTZ Control using UVC:

Hello Web Conferencing Professional!

I wanted to share my experiences with WebRTC and how quickly you can get a free Face to Face video conferencing software up and running on your own website or server. As many of you may know Google has released a Open Source code library giving anyone the capabilities to install and use WebRTC! Using the free resources from Google and some basic HTML and CSS knowledge you can create a "Skype" like application in only a couple hours.
