Real-time video streaming is essential in many types of systems. A system for streaming real-time video provides a low-latency solution allows systems and humans to respond to real-time events as they occur. Client application platforms, such as HTML5, may be used for web development; however, support for real-time video is very limited. The system provides the ability to stream real-time video from an originating video source to an HTML5 web application with low latency. A real-time video server includes a relay service configured to receive a video stream from a video source, a fragmented video generator configured to convert the video stream into a file-based video compression format including a plurality of video fragments, and a streaming service configured to transmit the fragmented video file to a video client for real-time playback.

Innovative solar contractors are rapidly adding this tool to their diagnostic and preventive maintenance programs are discussed. Pro-active thermal imaging surveys of solar modules can identify problem areas quickly and efficiently, preventing offline incidents and reducing operation costs. Solar contractors report that adding thermal images and temperature data to inspection reports significantly increases the value of these reports and generates more work opportunities. Thermal imaging is now a key component in Halcyon's preventive maintenance program. Thermal imagery can identify soiled or shaded individual cells within the systems as hotter areas of resistance. Common defects in PV cells such as shunt or series resistance, or crystalline non uniformities can reduce efficiency even shut down an installation. Advanced in-camera algorithms and preset temperature triggers can quickly detect low and high temperatures as well as offer differential, or Delta-T, readings.

Infrared camera technology spans a wide range of the electromagnetic spectrum, with results that vary with the waveband. Although there is some overlap of applications between the different infrared subbands and associated sensor technologies, it is critical to understand the trade-offs before making a selection for a given application. For the purposes of infrared imaging discussions, the infrared region of the electromagnetic spectrum can be divided into two main wavebands: near-infrared and thermal infrared. The most significant properties of these bands are as follows: Near-infrared cameras primarily see reflected radiation. The human eye is insensitive to NIR radiation, but you can sometimes see a bright source at the shorter wavelengths, which appear as deep shades of red. NIR images generally look similar to monochrome visible-light images, although many black or dark-colored surfaces will appear as much lighter shades of gray.

A system and method of managing a collective data transfer rate of a plurality of edge devices may include designating, by the plurality of edge devices, one of the plurality of the edge devices a master device. A data transfer rate of each of the plurality of edge devices may be controlled based on at least one flag of the edge device, the at least one flag set the designated master device. The designated master device may dynamically set the at least one flag of each of the plurality of edge devices such that controlling the data transfer rate by the plurality of edge devices is synchronized.
