The Mobile Bridge Server acts as a bridge between Symphony Server and your Mobile devices.
Symphony Mobile works seamlessly with Aimetis Symphony and E3200/E7000 Series appliances. It is available as a download on Google Play and the App Store. Symphony Mobile consists of two items, an application for your smartphone or tablet and a server computer.
The Mobile Bridge Server acts as a bridge between Symphony Server and your Mobile devices. You can install it on the same machine as your Symphony Server or on a separate machine. Android and iOS Mobile Clients connect to a Mobile Bridge, which is configured to communicate with a particular Symphony Server. The Mobile Bridge is capable of managing multiple user connections to the Symphony Server, and can do so securely via SSL if required.
The Mobile Bridge authenticates the Mobile Client user, and serves video and alarm information to the mobile clients. Requests for a particular camera’s live or historical video are routed through the Mobile Bridge to the Symphony Server. The Mobile Bridge transcodes the video into a format that can be efficiently transmitted to and viewed on the Mobile Client. Currently, JPEGs are streamed to iOS devices, but Android clients are capable of also receiving h.264 video directly. Other useful functionality such as controlling PTZ camera positions, alarm acknowledgement are also possible via the Mobile Bridge since it routes these commands to the Symphony Server.
