Church Puts IP CCTV to Holy Different Use

Thursday, June 23rd, 2011

A conversation in the local Co-Op between the vicar and a local resident led to IP cameras supplied by use-IP being used for a very different application than security.

As some elderly parishioners of St Peter and St Paul Church in Deddington began to find it difficult to attend the Sunday Service, the idea of a live audio stream was proposed. However, long pauses in the service (during communion, for example) revealed that both audio and video would be ideal. The brains behind the scheme, local resident David Rogers, used the church’s existing telephone line to establish a broadband connection, to which he connected a PC and IP cameras sourced from use-IP. He began with the Axis M1011 but found that the Axis M1054 was much more effective in producing the desired picture quality when viewed in full-screen. Recently, Mr Rogers has installed a second Axis M1054 facing the font at the rear of the Church to enable a second view, which is particularly useful during baptisms. A third IP camera (the Axis M1011-W) is used by the bell ringers of the church to alert them to the arrival of the bride during wedding services.

 

Using an application controlling Adobe Flash Live Media Encoder, the stream automatically switches on each morning and an operator can remotely adjust the volume to suit each service, whether it is solemn vows or a full choir and organ.

 

The project looks set to extend further into the UK, with interest from Christ Church Cathedral in Oxford, St John’s in Carterton and Buckingham Parish Church. The use of IP cameras in churches has also been noted on a more worldwide scale, following a visit from the Curate of Deddington (armed with nothing more than a laptop, an Axis M1011 and some cables) to Sweden to stream the consecration of Bishop Elect Jan-Olof Johannson from Uppsala Cathedral.

 

St Peter & St Paul

Back in Deddington, the success of the project is undeniable. Services are streamed frequently in the local nursing home and hospital, much to the delight of loyal church-goers, with one broadcast reaching an audience of 160. The technology has even enabled new Godparents from as far as Kuala Lumpur and New Zealand to take their vows and actively partake in baptism services from thousands of miles away.

 

The possibilities seem endless. Future projects planned in the Parish include a communal reading of the St James’ Bible in honour of its 400th anniversary conducted over Skype and a ‘Christianity in 15 Objects’ series planned for 2011-12.

 

This may be a far cry from the ‘normal’ applications of IP CCTV Cameras but the work in Deddington goes a long way to prove how dynamic the products at use-IP can be.

Axis IP Cameras – 15 Years of Development

Friday, April 15th, 2011

Axis IP cameras have been leading the market for the past 15 years!

I can remember the Axis 2100 well.

Great to see that even after 15 years Axis aren’t slowing down at all, with recently announced new models that will have their competitors working hard to keep up! More on those new models to follow in the coming days and weeks, checkout the video below for a brief overview of their product history.

IP CCTV still just 5% of the CCTV Market?

Friday, December 19th, 2008

Once again this week somebody quoted this statistic:

Of course IP is only 5% of the CCTV Market.

Can that really be so?

If you take a look at our IP CCTV Facts page you’ll see that it’s being adopted by some fairly serious end-users, and used in some fairly big system applications.

You have to wonder whether stats such as these, once created, simply get trotted-out ad infinitum:

  • 4million CCTV cameras in the UK
  • one camera for every 14 people
  • you’ll be caught on CCTV 300 times a day

These numbers have been quoted for about the past five years now!

Who is counting?

How?

Power Over Ethernet (POE) Explained by Veracity

Tuesday, December 16th, 2008

Power Over Ethernet brings some great additional benefits to the application POE experts Veracityof IP security devices such as network cameras.

Essentially, you can power the camera (or other network device) via the ethernet data cable:

  • a single cost-effective network cable to each device
  • safe low-voltage supply
  • easily extend your network
  • no need for skilled electrical installation labour
  • a single device POE mid-span extension
  • multiple devices via a POE switch
  • the ability to ‘reach’ 100m or more from your existing network
  • 802.3 POE standards allow common solutions for many devices
  • even devices that do not have POE built-in can be used with POE supplies (by use of an Active Splitter at the device end)

We take a lot of calls about the use of POE with IP CCTV and are aware that people find some of the concepts a bit tricky.

Veracity have just produced some really helpful white papers to explain power over ethernet technology and its application:

“Power Without the Struggle” – the benefits of POE technology and how to take full advantage of them …

“POE Explained” – POE concepts through to the latest 802.3at ‘POE Plus’ solutions …

Veracity’s OUTREACH & OUTSOURCE solutions enable you to extend POE beyond 100m.

These new guides from Veracity are written in plain English with helpful graphics and diagrams to aid your understanding. We recommend you take a look.

You can find their range of POE products in our POE shop.
