Perfect Video in Any Situation - August Product Updates

August 06, 2020


With another month behind us, the Rhombus team has released new features to enable your organization to be more connected and secure. Buckle up because we have a lot of new and exciting product features to share!

No internet? No problem! – Offline streaming in the Rhombus Mobile App

A common problem that most traditional cloud systems face is accessing camera feeds when the internet is offline. Today, we are excited to announce the ability to view live video streams even when your internet goes down.

If your internet suddenly goes offline, and your mobile device is connected to the same network, you can now access live and historical footage from the Rhombus iOS/Android mobile app. There’s no configuration or effort on your part, delivering a seamless and intuitive user experience. Most importantly, offline streaming maintains the same best-in-class cybersecurity practices that you have come to expect from Rhombus.

To try offline streaming out, download the latest mobile app, and disconnect your internet (it might be worth letting everyone know first)!

Multiple views from one camera - Tile view for the Rhombus R360

Recently we announced the R360 camera, a 12-megapixel, 360° camera with live, immersive dewarping. We then followed it up with the same immersive experience delivered to the Rhombus Mobile App. And today, we are now releasing tile views for the R360, allowing you to create up to 6 separate views from a single R360 camera!

Real-time, HD video with even greater efficiency – Live Buffered streaming

For even greater control over your video streaming experience, there are now multiple ways to view your video! Building on Rhombus’ sub-second Live Realtime streaming, Live Buffered streaming is now available, providing full HD video quality with less browser and GPU requirements. Easily switch between the different streaming options, and the browser will automatically share your preference for that particular camera.
