An optional service, the Streaming Video feature allows WAVE PTX broadband PTT mobile users to push live H.264 video, with audio, from their device’s integrated camera(s), which results in faster, more accurate communication in the moments that matter.

  • Continuously stream live video to other users, dispatchers, or talkgroups
  • Simultaneously stream video and initiate/receive PTT calls
  • Request streaming video from other users (dispatchers only)

Increases Clarity and Improves
Situational Awareness

By integrating streaming video in a single push-to-talk application, originators have a tool that brings the robustness of face-to -face communications to remote communication.

Because recipients see what they are seeing, originators can combine video and voice in a single, instantaneous communications session to increase the speed and efficiency of their communication.

The optional Streaming Video feature allows WAVE PTX broadband PTT mobile users to push live H.264 video, with audio, from their device’s integrated camera(s). The streaming video recipients can be any assigned contacts or groups that are capable of receiving video calls. Each video session can have just a single originator, and each participant can have only one active video call at a time.

Combine Video and Audio in a Single,
Instantaneous Communications Session

Compliant with the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Mission Critical Video (MC Video) standard, WAVE PTX Streaming Video makes it possible for users to push live video to individuals, groups, or dispatchers. The result is increased situational awareness for dispatchers, supervisors, and other recipients because they have a real-time view of events and activities as they happen.

To stream video to an individual, the originator taps the Contacts button to display the list of contacts and selects the one with whom to start a video call. To start the one-to-one video call, the originator taps the video icon located to the left of the on-screen PTT button. When the contact accepts the incoming video call, streaming begins. To end the streaming video call, either the originator or recipient can tap the end call button.

For both individual and group streaming, the PTT call audio and video audio can be mixed, or the PTT call audio can have priority. In addition, the originator has the option of choosing which camera, front or rear, to broadcast. The originator can also tap the video call screen to minimize the video and tap the microphone icon to mute or unmute the audio sent with the live video stream.

How many times has someone said, “if they could only see what I see” when trying to convey verbally to another person what’s going on around them? That’s because using words to paint a mental image of what’s happening at that moment can be a frustrating and time-consuming experience.

Whether someone is a shopping mall security guard watching a food fight grow, an HVAC technician experiencing problems with a new install procedure, or an EMT dealing with a critical patient, the ability to stream video in real time is the key to increasing the speed and clarity of their communications.
