Wireless Multi-Camera Video System with ADA Compliant Remote Control Kiosk

LNCVisitorCenter

Two things that often don't mix well are nature and the spread of technology. A regional nature center contacted Cetacea with a problem that had been plaugeing them concerning a proposed camera system with ADA-compliant control kiosk. Previous solutions had included an invasion of trenching equipment and tractors tearing up everything in sight, which ultimately resulted in a poor performing system. 

Cetacea's solution was to use multiple wireless systems to combine high-resolution video cameras. These cameras would then be remotely viewed and operated at the ADA-compliant kiosk using a touchscreen and joystick. Each camera was strategically located to allow virtual walk-throughs of the nature center paths and lakesides. Two cameras were mounted in the middle of the centers main lakes and one up high for panoramic views.

No plants were harmed in the making of the LakeCam system.
