OpenCamera, the developer of the open source wireless camera framework, announced today that its latest version of the OpenWise Camera Platform now includes support for 802.11ac WiFi security cameras, making them available to many organizations.
The company also added support for an OpenCamera Web API that allows developers to access the OpenCAM platform and open source camera frameworks in an easy to use way.
OpenCamera is the developer behind the open-source WLAN camera framework and the Open Camera API, which can be used to develop cameras that work with WLANs such as ZigBee, 802.16ac, and Wi-Fi Direct.
The new version of OpenCamera supports a wide range of WLAN cameras, including the Intel Wi-Stick WL710 (Wi-Fi), Intel WiMAX WLAN-L710, Intel WLAN Plus (WiMAX), and Intel WiDi WLAN.
The WLAN platform can also support a wide variety of different camera models, including Wi-Cam, WiCam Plus, and the WLAN Wireless Camera.
With support for OpenWises cameras, the Open camera platform provides a way for companies to deploy and deploy their own open source cameras on WLAN devices, providing end-to-end access to camera and sensor data for end-users.
This opens up many opportunities for the camera companies to create and deliver new applications that leverage the power of the platform, including image quality, security, and privacy.
“OpenCamera supports the Wi-Gigabit standard to ensure the widest possible range of connectivity,” said David Smith, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Open Camera at OpenWisetech.
“We also added Wi-Wifi capabilities to support a number of different security camera applications, including camera profiles for authentication, access control, and remote control.”
OpenWISE camera framework supports Wi-Cable, Wi-Link, and Bluetooth and supports 802.15.4.
Wi-Way cameras can support 802.1X.
With the addition of OpenWISET cameras, OpenCams are now able to support cameras running at the WL810, WL910, WLP920, WLS740, WLV810, and WLS940.
The OpenCamera platform is available in three different versions: WLP990, WLC990, and WiFi.
The WiFi version is intended for devices running at least Windows 10, Windows 8, and Windows 7.
The L710 is intended to be used with WLP930, WLA940, and other WLAN routers.
The Bluetooth version supports Bluetooth LE, Bluetooth LE LE+GL, Bluetooth 3.0, and OpenWLE.
The Wi-Bolt and Bluetooth Bolt versions support both Bluetooth LE and Open WLE.
In addition to the new camera framework support, the latest version includes new features for secure access to Wi-Tether cameras, new camera profiles and security settings, and an additional camera profile that allows the user to customize the camera’s sensitivity and focus.
The next version of open camera also includes support of WLE-G and OpenLTE cameras.
The latest version also includes a new Camera Profile feature, which allows users to set the camera to automatically capture a photo when a wireless connection is established, and automatically save the photo to a remote location for later review or sharing.
“The OpenCamera WLAN Camera Platform has grown into a strong foundation for the next generation of WLC applications that will be more secure and accessible for end users,” said Ravi Shankar, CEO of OpenCAMS, in a press release.
“With the addition on the WLS710 and WL940 cameras, we have expanded the capabilities of OpenCapture, allowing the developer to extend the capabilities and capabilities of the camera platform even further.”
OpenCameras can be easily integrated with existing hardware and software, and can be deployed using a wide array of devices and configurations.
“This is an exciting time for OpenCamera as we continue to deliver security and privacy-oriented applications for our users and end-user devices,” said Jamey Bickford, VP of Marketing and Operations at OpenComes Software, in the release.
