CEDIA EXPO Preview: IC Realtime Panoramic Surveillance Software

August 25, 2014
IC Realtime has launched the first version its IC720 surveillance camera software. The IC720 software will be on display at CEDIA EXPO, booth #776. A key element of the company’s upcoming 720-degree camera line, the software also dramatically improves the user-viewing experience of its 180- and 360-degree surveillance cameras (all analog, IP, and mega-pixel models), as well as those of other brands.
Available as a free app on iTunes, IC720 is presently compatible with iPad, with upcoming versions for iPhone, Android, and a variety of mobile devices, tablets, and laptops. 

”The IC720 software creates a panoramic, 3D-like experience that completely captivates viewers by putting them in the center of the action, far surpassing anything available in video surveillance monitoring to date,” said IC Realtime CEO Matt Sailor. “This game-changing technology is reinventing the way we think about and approach video and software solutions that can be deployed across almost all hardware applications.”

According to Sailor, an added beauty of IC720 is that it's built in a modular format, making it device-agnostic and therefore capable of integrating with all video surveillance cameras on the market today.

“If the software doesn't already work with the manufacturer’s application, just provide us your RTSP video stream path, and we'll make it work,” said Sailor, addressing both surveillance camera manufacturers and security system installation companies. “The functionality of the application is second nature, and the potential of the application itself is limitless.”

The software was tested in the most extreme condition that IC Realtime could find: automobile racing. The company worked closely with Scuderia Corsa race team to outfit their Ferrari 458 Italia No. 63 — a vehicle that is currently competing on the US circuit and won the Grand-Am GT championship last year — with its new 720-degree video camera and software. Streaming live high-definition video to mobile devices, and uncompromised at speeds in excess of 100 MPH, the camera is used during practice laps and is planned to eventually be used during racing as well.

The IC720 hardware and software technology incorporates 15 unique aspects that the company has applied/received patent protection on.

Different versions of the camera with interchangeable lenses and sensors are currently in development. The first is slated to hit the market next month, in September 2014.
