HD LL Streaming Remote

High-definition low latency video streaming over IP for remote control

  • Remote control of cranes. In container terminals, ship-to-shore cranes are controlled remotely. The operators are located in a control station hundreds of meters from the crane and really enjoy the comfortable and ergonomic working position. They are sitting in an armchair, triggering movements with a joystick and buttons and looking at monitors showing images from the cameras. Motion sickness is no more a problem. Remote control made it possible to increase the speed of the crane and to decrease the container loading cycle time.
  • Remote control of drones. Drones can be equipped with high definition cameras for a more precise control and a more detailed inspection. The video streams can be encoded onboard and streamed over the Wi-Fi network to the ground station where they will be processed and archived.
HD LL Streaming Critical

High-definition low latency video streaming over IP for critical infrastructure

  • Off-shore drilling platforms
  • Oil, gas production, pipelines
  • Petrochemical refineries
  • Power plants
  • Mining
  • Factories / manufacturing plants
  • Military
HD LL Streaming Mines

High-definition low latency video streaming over IP in mines

In open pit mines, unmanned trucks or excavators can be controlled safely from a remote location. The operators we can now benefit from the air conditioning and a reduced ambient noise. As a consequence, operator fatigue is reduced, with a direct influence on the reduction of errors and downtime in daily operations.
