JavaFX Video Surveillance System

Our group is building a project for JavaOne 2009 which is based on JavaFX and will showcase many capabilities of the platform. In order to achieve maximum leverage of the code we're writing, my manager encouraged me to submit the same project as a demo proposal for the Mobile World Congress conference which was held in Barcelona last week.

The proposal was mostly accepted, but the marketing folks asked that we considerably change it so as to highlight the video streaming capabilities of JavaFX.

It turned out that modifying the original scenario to support video didn't make alot of sense. Instead we came up with a completely new scenario based on a video surveillance system.

The basic scenario is a corporate security force which has multiple cameras situated throughout an office complex. A centralized console displays the streams coming from each camera, and several security guards patrol the campus, each carrying a JavaFX-enabled handset.

We were able to implement a proof of concept of this demo in well under a month, with no prior experience with JavaFX.

In the next few postings I'll describe the demo in detail and discuss some of the issues we encountered while building it.

Overall I'm extremely pleased with the JavaFX platform, and I also was pleasantly surprised by the warm reception the demo received at the show.
