The Piccolo Management Software architecture supports hundreds units and multiple clients, allows continues and reliable transmission without overloading the network, while supporting numerous on-field units.
The Piccolo provides high quality live video and audio, as well as GPS transmission over wireless and cellular networks (3G & LTE & GPRS & HSPA & EDGE & Wi-Fi) from anywhere to any location. The unit can be monitored and controlled from Network System Management (PSM) at any location, or from smart phones and PDAs.
The system is planned to stream video with a very low bit rate (from 10kbit/s and up). The Piccolo units are optimized for wireless and cellular networks and provide stable video streaming at the highest available quality, without visible performance lag (low latency). The system is designed for streaming in low network bandwidth environments over long distances and is tolerant of packet failure when cellular GSM reception is low.
The Piccolo Management Software (PMS) is advanced scalable complete software comprising of Server/ Client/ architecture, allowing configuring, monitoring and controlling hundreds of on-field live Piccolo units from any location. The PMS software is designed to provide the operator with HLS related features and possibilities, while maintaining maximum user friendliness.
The system is designed for streaming in low network bandwidth environments, over long distances, and is tolerant of packet failure when cellular GSM reception is low. Any analogue PAL/NTSC camera can be connected to the unit.
The architecture is based on a PSM server which can reside either on an Internet fixed IP, VPN or inside the unit. The architecture was designed specifically for multi unit application, long distance environments such as wireless cellular networks. PSM has real time bandwidth control capability and is very tolerant of packet failure.
PSM – Piccolo Server Management (Windows Service Program)
This is a Web Admin Interface program and is used for setting up your server for PSM and PICCOLO units to connect to, setting permission and access levels for connecting clients and configuring a variety of other settings in the server. With this program, the server’s settings can be accessed and changed from any location, using the web.
PMC – Piccolo Monitor (Client) Application
This is the application through which you are able to watch the video, listen to the audio and monitor the location of your PICCOLO devices. In this application you are able to change the parameters of the video and audio and view the recordings you have made.
PDC – Piccolo Device Configurator Application
This application is used for configuring the PICCOLO device parameters prior to operating the unit and for upgrading the unit’s firmware. The unit is configured through a USB Cable interface on any PC (Windows XP or higher).
PAVP Piccolo AV Player Application
This application is used for viewing recorded video/audio files. It is also used to verify recorded files that have a digital signature assigned to them, as well as decrypting recorded files that are encrypted with a key.
iPhone Client: iPiccolo
iPhone Application is used for monitoring video/audio/location streams from PICCOLO devices, on your iPhone.
