Amur and Timur online with Line video surveillance system
Now you have an opportunity to view an unusual friendship of the tiger Amur and the goat Timur famous throughout world online. The broadcast is organized by the "Line.Retransmitter" service.
Primorsky Safari Park has become widely known for the tiger Amur, which, instead of eating the goat as the prey, befriended him. Every day thousands of people visit the official web-site of the park and follow the course of events in the aviary of Amur and Timur.
It has been 11 days since the broadcast was launched and we want to show how we had made this happen.
Safari Park is 70 km away from Vladivostok. The only solution to set up a camera broadcast was to use satellite Internet. The Internet access was provided by Sputnik-Video. The Jupiter platform from the Express-AM5 spacecraft enabled the upstream bandwidth of 10 Mbit/s.
On December 31 the channel "Vesti24" had announced the broadcast. Because of the influx the web-site of Safari Park and even our servers failed to stand the load. Within two hours we added the required capacities and the stability was restored.
On January 2, after the analysis of visitors, it was found that their geography is not limited only to Russia. Thus, we added servers from the Netherlands and the United States.
On January 5, the administration of the Safari Park made a request to restrict unauthorized broadcasting on other sites. Two days later the required functionality was ready. In the near future this feature will be available to all customers: the ability to specify a list of sites allowed adding a broadcast.
Let us summarize this event:
over 2.5 million connections to IP-cameras;
Today "Line. Retransmitter" is operating on servers installed in Russia, the Netherlands and the USA, with the total capacity of 12 Gbps.
