TESSCO Enables Innovative Live Video Streaming Application on Chesapeake Bay Police Boats for Maryland Department of Natural Resources
After four years of planning and product testing,
The need for live video streaming from the police boats is crucial -- 140 vessels cover the Chesapeake Bay’s 64,000 square miles, and their responsibilities include, among others, homeland security operations, search and rescue teams, emergency medical services, education, information and communications services on a 24/7 basis. Prior to the new application, the video feed from craft-mounted cameras could only be stored locally and downloaded once the boat was docked.
To date, eight towers have been outfitted with the new system. The live video streaming application is fully integrated into the DNR’s leading-edge Maritime Law Enforcement Information Network, or MLEIN.
“TESSCO’s product managers have been working with the DNR for four years
to find a complete mobility solution that would result in real time,
uninterrupted streaming video from police boats,” said
