Traffic Cameras: Snapshot vs. Video

VIEWER MAIL

Q:

A:
As much as we’d like to be able to provide streaming video to the public, the enormous hardware, bandwidth and manpower costs to provide this service for more than 600 cameras is just prohibitive.

It would also require a switch from our current Web architecture to an IP (Internet Protocol) system, and this would cost a great deal of money in addition to the above costs.

So at least for now, the snapshots are all we can provide.
