Abstract

A framework for mobile and portable High-Definition Video streaming is proposed, developed and assessed. Suitable for emergency scenarios, involving for instance ambulances and fire-fighters, the presented framework resorts to a state-of-art platform which considers off-the-shelf hardware and available video codecs for High-Definition Video. The obtained results show that the proposed architecture is able to efficiently support rescuing teams in the demanding scenarios where they operate, guaranteeing video quality and ease of use. This solution is particularly useful for situations where experts in the fields can accurately provide their insights and contributions remotely and in a timely fashion.
