Recently there was an article in the IEEE technical journal that declared, “Video Telephony has Finally Arrived”. They described how the Jetsons first predicted this in 1962, and now we can use our computer and Smartphone to do exactly what George did with his boss Cosmo Spacely. This animated sitcom described the world in 2062. I guess we did this sooner than expected.
Today we can use Skype and similar services to see and talk to each other across the world. The videophone has become a reality, but what about viewing our IP surveillance cameras remotely on our mobile devices? More specifically how feasible is it to use a Cloud system to view and record video from an IP camera system? Does new technology allow us to replace a local video recording system? Well almost.
