Proposal Title: MEGASCOP: Multi Interface Secure Audio/Video Rebroadcasting (SAVR) System
Topic Number: H-SB016.1-001
Phase: Phase II
Topic Title: Security Systems Video/Audio Interoperability Device
Organization: MCQ INC.
Address: 1551 Forbes St.
Fredericksburg, VA 22405-1603  
Abstract: Through this SBIR, a system will be developed to enable authorized users to access video and audio from existing surveillance systems, and rebroadcast the video/audio signals for use by authorized users such as first responders. McQ will leverage its extensive camera interface, video compression, cryptography, and product development experience to both perform the appropriate tradeoffs in designing the system and to successfully build and test a prototype system. Interoperability is a critical feature of the system to allow the system to operate on a variety of closed circuit and networked camera systems; each with different physical interfaces, communication standards, and architectures. McQ's plug-and-play camera interface experience developed through developing its vWatch product, and its extensive networking and communications experience based on over a decade of developing video streaming products, will be efficiently utilized. During Phase I, a detailed analysis was performed to identify the dominant camera interface standards which encompass the largest variety of existing surveillance camera products; and a complete system design was developed to discover, interface with, and stream video from these devices. During Phase II, a prototype multi interface secure AV rebroadcasting system will be built and tested. The necessary hardware and software will be implemented to achieve the goals of the program. The technologies derived from Phase II development can be used to improve the ease of use of remote camera systems and allow operators to dynamically manage their video consumption, resulting in reduced costs of streaming video.
