Mobile Video Surveillance with Low-Bandwidth Low-Latency Video Streaming

Abstract: This paper presents a system for remote live video surveillance. Videos are acquired from a fixed camera at 10 fps and QVGA resolution, compressed at 5 or 20 kbit/s with H.264, and streamed to a remote site, where they get processed by an automatic video surveillance system. The target surveillance application performs moving object segmentation and tracking. Both ends (video acquisition and processing) could be connected through a wireless network, specifically GPRS.The whole system is studied and optimized to maintain low latency. The reported experiments demonstrate that the proposed system is able to send up to four video streams over GPRS or E-GPRS network, without significantly affecting the performance of the automatic video surveillance system. Comparative tests have been performed with other existing streaming solutions.
