Gopro And Action Cameras
Hi. I work for a prominent expert network working in partnership with zintro. We would like to source multiple experts on behalf of an institutional investor with direct experience with action cameras. To be specific, they are hoping to speak with those who are familiar with gopro and other players in terms of technology and price, the outlook for future growth and market size,.+6 Other Responses
Automotive Camera Market
I would like to know the tier 1 companies (in the automotive camera market) deep analysis such as the camera production and sales volume, revenue, oem customers they cater to. Also, module and sensor supplier status, strong point and weak point and so on.
Any kind of analysis with module supplier and chip supplier will also be good for me.+8 Other Responses
In a video taken from a digital camera mounted in a locomotive windshield, is it possible for someone wishing to tamper with the position of a grade crossing gate arm in the video to change its position so that it appears in the new position throughout the train's approach to the crossing?+6 Other Responses
i have an idea for a completely new application for using a digital camera, which if this is technically possible, i believe could become a revolutionary product for a very specific industry. In order to see if my idea is even possible, i need to ask a question or two.
I am relatively ignorant when it comes to understanding the distances of digital cameras relative to their zoom capabilities. So my question is, what is the range that can be practically and optimally achieved using the best commercially available cameras we have today? For instance, suppose there is a 2’x2’ sign with 1” letters say 500 yards away as an example, and using optical and/or digital lens(es) be able to zoom in and view and read that sign well enough that it can fill a 3”x3” screen on the camera? Am i talking science fiction here? If so, at what distances could one expect to achieve that capability? Would such a camera need a lens so large it would become impractical to use, and/or the cost be prohibitive (for example, under $1,000).
I am looking to develop a product that has the capability to zoom in at these distances for a specific application. But i have no idea whether or not this is even realistic.
Thanks in advance for the help.+8 Other Responses
i am looking for someone with the skill (or know the right people) to help me create a device with code which is to be installed on *my own* ip camera cctv system (4 cameras, i have all passwords, access to any settings, etc.).
Presumably a microcontroller/development platform of your choice, two wired ethernet cat5 jacks, one of which is used for line *in* (cat5-line from the foscam hd ip cameras) and also one for line *out* (cat5 out to the tp-link router and then the foscam network video recorder - nvr). There should be some small amount of memory for the mjpeg frame buffer (a few minutes of hd).
For the software side, most importantly is that it must be able to re-create and output a video stream (preferably identical in all ways) but that is based on the last captured incoming frame -- but only in the event of a disruption of the original source (such as power cut to the ip cameras). In other words, the main purpose is to ensure a stable non-stop or near to non-stop video stream to the nvr even if it has to recreate the video stream from a single last good frame. It does not have to be absolutely real-time, it can have a constant rolling buffer of 10 seconds (or whatever value) between the incoming lan and outgoing lan... And if the device detects that the incoming stream has suddenly stopped, it will instantly recall the still image from memory, loop it around into a video stream which is then outputted via the cat5-out to continue its journey to the router and nvr for recording. The device sits between the ip camera and the network router. One device for each ip camera for the sake of simplicity.
From the point of view of the nvr, there would never be any break in video source because the "blackout time" would have been replaced with the video stream made by the custom device. I only need the schematics and code or shopping list and instructions. I can buy the necessary parts and fabricate it. If there is a ready made board with good enough specs to handle hd video encoding, please go ahead and suggest.
If such dev board does not exist and you think it is better to custom make a pcb, and choose our own mcu, that is ok too. The other good use for such a custom board is to add on things like on screen display info. I did not suggest any existing board because i have not found one that has 2 on-board cat5 jacks.
Of course when the ip camera original "real" stream resumes, then the device can discontinue the re-creation job and just allow the mjpeg stream to flow as normal to the nvr, then the device switches back to standby mode and keeps monitoring for another fault to occur.
Hope this makes sense. Feel free to ask questions/concerns! thank you all for your time.+5 Other Responses

my name is artem, i am a research assistant in the department of advanced construction and building technologies in the technical university of munich.
Within our project in the area amibien assistant living, we need to design a bed for elderly people with osteoporosis.
We are planning to implement different modules in this system, such as a bone density detector (omnisence from sunlight), a falling detection system, pulse and blood-presure measurement system, monitor with the 3d camera that would be used for giving instructions and monitoring his progress for the physical excercise, and etc.
We need to consider very detailed design for this bed and implement a data management and processing module.
In terms of this module, we were trying to find any systems or devices that would do following tasks:
1) collecting, storing and processing information from all sensors that we are planning to embed into the bed;
2) evaluating the whole information received from sensors and giving tips for the next actions (e.G. If person starts to have more fat then system gives the advice to this person to make the special exercises);
3) monitoring of the quality of exercises by having observation cameras and giving a feedback based on the information from cameras;
4) sending the complex received information from different time intervals to the physician.
We imagine it like a one computer that has sockets for plugging in all devices and sensors and that is able to give the solutions for all above mentioned questions.
Please, let me know if you have any suggestions what can be used for that.
Thank you!+2 Other Responses
I am looking to learn how to create a 3d model of a mine. I would like to learn how to import form civil 3d, create geometry, material application and animate the model
i am researching prices for training on 3ds max for my boss. We are a mining company looking to be trained on how to use 3ds max for our purposes. We are seeking to create a model of a mine area, with both underground and above ground details but with a view of the underground as well.
We are looking to have a couple of days of 1 on 1 training, and the potential to contact with questions later.
A quote for a consultant doing the project would also be good.
