58 | 800-872-3884 • WWW.RADIORESOURCE.COM WAVE PTX (PUSH-TO-TALK SERVICE) WAVE PTX™ STREAMING VIDEO SEE A REAL-TIME VIEW OF EVENTS AS THEY HAPPEN Compliant with the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Mission Critical Video (MCVideo) standard, WAVE PTX Streaming Video makes it possible for users to push live video to individuals, groups, or dispatchers. The result is increased situational awareness for dispatchers, supervisors, and other recipients because they have a real-time view of events and activities as they happen. COMBINE VIDEO AND AUDIO IN A SINGLE, INSTANTANEOUS COMMUNICATIONS SESSION The optional Streaming Video feature allows WAVE PTX broadband PTT mobile users to push live H.264 video, with audio, from their device’s integrated camera(s). The streaming video recipients can be any assigned contacts or groups that are capable of receiving video calls. Each video session can have just a single originator, and each participant can have only one active video call at a time. GET INFORMATION WHEN AND WHERE YOU NEED IT Streaming video can be received as a one-to-one or talkgroup call via the WAVE PTX mobile and dispatch applications. INITIATE VIDEO SHARING FROM THE DISPATCH APPLICATION The optional Streaming Video feature also allows someone using the WAVE PTX dispatch application to “pull” live video from another user’s device. The targeted user has the option of accepting or declining (based on the Auto Answer Video Call setting) when the incoming video stream request is received. If the user accepts the request, the video stream will be sent as a one-to-one call to the dispatcher. WAVE PTX STREAMING VIDEO IN ACTION Getting the right information to the right people when it is needed most is the key to improving the effectiveness and efficiency of personnel in the field. Whether broadcast by a user or pulled by a dispatcher, WAVE PTX Streaming Video increases clarity and improves situational awareness, resulting in faster, more accurate communication in the moments that matter. These use cases showcase how different roles can use WAVE PTX broadband PTT and Streaming Video to enhance the exchange of information. GET INFORMATION WHEN AND WHERE YOU NEED IT Streaming video can be received as a one-to-one or talkgroup call via the WAVE PTX mobile and dispatch applications. To receive a talkgroup video call, recipients must be configured to receive group video calls by the WAVE PTX administrator. One-to-one and quick group video calls, however, can be received as long as the intended recipients have the video streaming feature enabled. Recipients can receive streaming video calls from any talkgroup to which they are assigned and, unlike PTT voice calls, streaming video calls are received regardless of the selected talkgroup or talkgroup scanning mode. Incoming streaming video calls will generate an alert on the recipient’s device. From the Incoming Video Call alert, recipients can select Accept to receive the call or Decline to reject the call. When a PTT call and video call are both active, the PTT call audio has priority over the video audio unless the recipient chooses to mix the PTT call and video audio. Recipients can also leave an ongoing video call and rejoin later from the WAVE PTX application history, assuming the streaming video call is still in progress. Another unique capability of the WAVE PTX Streaming Video feature is its ability to adapt to different network conditions, including available bandwidth, to provide recipients with a continuous video stream. NOW I UNDERSTAND Streaming video and WAVE PTX broadband PTT make it possible for INITIATE VIDEO SHARING FROM THE DISPATCH APPLICATION The optional Streaming Video feature also a lows s meone using the WAVE PTX dispatch application to “pull” live video from another user’s device. The targeted user has the option of accepting or declining (based on the Auto nswer Video Call setting) when the incoming video stream request is received. If the user accepts the request, the video stream will be sent as a one-to-one call to the dispatcher. To initiate a pull request, dispatchers click the Streaming Video icon next to the desired contact, or right click on the contact and select Open Video Stream. From the Message tab, disp chers can also click the Streaming Video icon on the fleet member message block. There may also be situations where a dispatcher want o “pull” a video strea automatically. The WAVE PTX administrator must enable this function for the dispatcher before it can be used and the user’s Allow Unconfirmed Video Transmission parameter must be set to ON. Once video streaming starts, the video is shown within a separate block in the dispatch browser tab, with the option to move the block anywhere within the tab as needed.
