Video Conferencing for the TX3 Touch series telephone entry panels


The TX3-Touch series telephone entry systems, designed by Mircom Technologies Ltd., provide primary resident/visitor access control for buildings. This system allows building residents to communicate with visitors and grant or deny entry to them into the complex. The communication is essentially based on voice telephony. The aim of this project is to design and develop a means of video conferencing for communication in this system. The video will be transmitted over an Ethernet LAN and the building residents will be able to see the guest in real-time while communicating with them. The residents will be able to see the video either on the in-suite stations located in the apartment or optionally they can download a software application that can run on their home PC/laptop to view the video. The key challenges involve reliable transmission of video data over wireless channels so as to minimize the delay and loss of data, as well as efficient use of available bandwidth of the Ethernet. This facility will enhance the security aspects of these TX3-Touch series systems.
