The project is to develop a software video player that has similar functionality to the example player downloadable from http://www.softpedia.com/dyn-postdownload.php?p=218933&t=5&i=1 (note that this player requires .Net Framework 4 Extended). This example player enables up to 7 video streams to be presented as thumbnails and played synchronised to each other. Each of the streams can be expanded to play on their own at full D1 resolution. An initial example of navigation functionality is here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SYPZacbtDrM (note that this example has post production overlays in red added for presentation purposes).
The example player can handle numerous video formats but the player to be developed in this project needs only to play a single custom format, i.e. the .vis format as defined in the attached ‘viseum_video_format.pdf’ file. An example video in this format is downloadable from here http://www.viseum.co.uk/wp-pdf/carpark.vis (please note that this is not for public use and is provided purely for candidates to analyse the file format)
The functionality of the player to be developed is as follows:
1. Load a viseum video file for playing:
Simple directory browsing and file selection, filtered for .vis files.
2. Play/review video:
Similar controls to the example player above, but only the following are required:
i) Play button
ii) Pause button
iii) Position slider
iv) Left jog button
v) Right jog button
The player should flag if any source jpeg images have been tampered with and prevent that video stream from playing.
3. Export images:
The player must be able to export a frame from a selected camera as a jpeg. The exported image must be saved bit-for-bit to preserve the digital signature of the source.
4. Print images:
The player must enable a frame from a selected camera to be printed using the device’s local printer drivers.
The player should run on Microsoft Windows devices, with a simple licensing system to prevent unauthorised copying and distribution.
