You can monitor CCTV stream over a big screen without PVR.
Did you know that there is a professional signage display that can play IP CCTV stream over IP network, without any external device?
As IP CCTV is becoming popular in every part of our daily life whether it is for household or for B2B service operators, there are demands to monitor the CCTV streams over a big screen without PVR. Monitoring CCTV over a mobile phone application is already a way that a lot of people get used to. But, if you want to play CCTV stream over your own TV or signage display, you will need an external player or network PVR connected to your TV via HDMI port. This may be a simple option as the price of network PVR is now getting cheaper. Howerver, sometimes when there is no additional power and network cabling available at the display position, this can’t be an option.
Then, what could be your another option available in the market? Here comes with LG webOS display and signage client application.
LG webOS display comes with software RTSP player embedded; and all CCTV devices run the streams either in RTSP or http or even HLS. All those streams are supported by webOS display. Sounds simple? But, there is one more thing that is challenging that normal smart TV cannot support. All IP CCTV streams nowadays run stream with ID and Password for security. That means that your software player needs a feature that can decode the stream with ID and Password. Normal smart TV does not have this feature, while webOS display comes with this feature.
Just like you download mobile application to monitor your CCTV stream, you can download our signage application for webOS display and monitor your CCTV streams in your big webOS signage display screen.
