What's new

Here is what is new:

  • Improved IP Camera url discovery and ONVIF support.
  • Fine-grained viewer permissions control
  • Responsive sizing Teleport player embed code
  • API performance improvements
  • Migrated to new domain teleport.io
In the works

Here is what we're actively working on:

  • Ability to deep zoom within the Teleport player, making use of any 4K and 8K content.
  • IoT camera and display devices support.
  • Redesigned player UI and play modes
  • Multi feed player support
  • Broadcast delay support for video (frame content is now available)

  • Continuing work on software for Raspberry Pi/Upboard/Minnowboard/Intel Compute Sick and others to support Teleport IoT camera and display devices.

Updates to improve IP camera connectivity. Auto detection of jpeg/mjpeg/rtsp urls as well as ONVIF support.

July. 2017

Migrating to a new domain: teleport.io

Migration is now complete. teleport.nu will continue to function over the next year.

New feature: Viewer limits & permission control

The ability to control how users are allowed to consume feed content is now available. Custom roles can be defined allowing public/signed-in/share link viewers and embed codes, all have different permissions.

Supported polices are:

  • Limit image/video resolution, i.e. public viewers can only access 480p content, this helps lower bandwidth usage and in meeting local privacy laws
  • Limit image frame rate, i.e. viewers can't view faster than one frame a minute, while the feed can still record at a higher frame rate, this is also automatically used to limit bandwidth usage if throttling is enabled
  • Broadcast delay, i.e. limit access to frames older than 1 hour, again to help meet local privacy laws
Coming next:
  • Live content only
  • Inactivity triggered policies or maximal viewing time
  • Limit access to anonymized or masked content only
  • etc. let us know what you need!

Responsive Teleport player embed code

A new player embed code that uses <script tag vs <iframe and automatically sizes to maintain the feed aspect ratio and remove any black bars on the side, here is how to use it. It's used on the Teleport page already, however the embed page does not yet provide these codes, this will change once it gets more testing.

Migrating to a new domain: teleport.io

Starting this month we've begun the process of migrating away from teleport.nu to teleport.io. teleport.nu will function fully over the next year as far as API calls and player embeds, so there is plenty of time to transition. You can now update all player embed codes and links to the new domain.

On June 16th, users will be redirected from teleport.nu to teleport.io. This will not affect signed-in users which will be given until the end of June to sign in on the new domain.

Viewer limits & permission control

The ability to control how users are allowed to consume feed content is coming this month. Custom roles can be defined allowing public/signed-in/share link viewers and embed codes, all have different permissions.

Supported polices will be:

  • Limit image/video resolution, i.e. public viewers can only access 480p content, this helps lower bandwidth usage and in meeting local privacy laws
  • Limit image frame rate, i.e. viewers can't view faster than one frame a minute, while the feed can still record at a higher frame rate
  • Broadcast delay, i.e. limit access to frames older than 1 hour, again to help meet local privacy laws
  • Live content only
  • Inactivity triggered policies or maximal viewing time
  • Limit access to anonymized or masked content only
  • etc. let us know what you need!

Performance improvements

Starting on some optimizations to lower API response times this month.

  • Frame-get API response time went from 110 to 55ms!
  • Frame upload API also getting a makeover to enable faster 4K frame processing.
  • Expect more in the coming months.

4K/8K image and 4K video support

Teleport now supports up to 8K image resolution and 4K video resolution. Available on the Control plan only at this time.

IP address change

IP address changed on API and website endpoints. This was a result of cloud infrastructure upgrades. The current IP will remain the same in the foreseeable future. Ideally any firewall or trust policy configurations on your end would be based on the domain name not the IP, the IP may change again in the future as required by cloud deployment upgrades.

Tired pricing for bandwidth and storage

Some of our customers store a lot more than we anticipated. To support this we've lowered our pricing based on tiers, the pricing is posed here.

Cloud deployment improvements to support higher bandwidth requirements

In order to ensure performance at scale work was done on expanding our backend storage services to accommodate increased bandwidth requirements. This way you can not only store effectively an unlimited amount of image data with Teleport, but also access it at speed even with thousands of simultaneous viewers.
