Workshop: IP Camera - Live Mobile Video, with Nicolas de Cosson
6-9PM in Lambton Studio A
Have you ever wanted to use your cell-phone's camera as a live, mobile video streaming device for performance or installation? Or, perhaps access your wireless IP Cameras video stream (or any open IP camera on the internet) for use in your multi-media projects? Well, look no further - we can show you how!!
Join us in Studio A – Lambton Tower (basement) for a workshop that demonstrates how to activate your mobile device and/or IP cameras for performance and installation purposes. We will also look at Syphon as a method of sharing the video stream to other applications such as Madmapper.
What you will need:
- Mobile device (cell phone, iPad, tablet – running either iOS or Android)
- MacBook Laptop
- Chargers (live video is cool, but after an hour+ your phone will be drained, bring a charger!)
- Laptop apps:
