Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) Used to Maximize Video Distribution and Minimize Network Bandwidth Utilization.
Human Circuit provided a turnkey medical simulation center to better prepare students for their careers as physicians through realistic hands-on training in coordination with their in-depth classroom studies. Designed with custom hardware that works in connection with B-Line Medical’s software to digitally record and store footage of students performing specific clinical tasks for administrators and instructors to review and evaluate in real-time. Human Circuit applied designs specifically for case study rooms, self-teaching labs, patient exam rooms, observation rooms, and computer rooms.
Audio and Video feeds from microphones and cameras throughout the facility are encoded in real-time and multicast over an Ethernet infrastructure as MPEG4 streams. Human Circuit utilized internet group management protocol (IGMP) to maximize video distribution and minimize network bandwidth utilization. Through an integrated web-enabled user interface, users can navigate to individual cameras, join live multicasts and view video streams while controlling cameras in real-time.
