Librestream, Cisco TelePresence video for PDO

Gulf Business Machines kits-out Petroleum Development Oman’s control rooms.

Dubai-headquartered systems integrator Gulf Business Machines (GBM) has supplied a video collaboration solution to Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) based on Librestream technology and Cisco networking.

Live video, images and audio from Librestream’s Onsight rugged cameras will transit through Inmarsat’s Bgan link from the field into the control room. Here remote experts can collaborate with field workers from their desktops or from Cisco TelePresence rooms.

Librestream’s Mike Murphy said, ‘Often field engineers need to stay a safe distance away from the equipment when diagnosing emergencies such as well head relief valve failures. Here engineers can use the camera’s digital zoom help remote experts diagnose the issue.’

Cisco’s Chet Namboodri added that the PDO project was one of several such collaborations with Librestream in oil and gas and other verticals. Cisco partner GBM resells the Onsight range of Ex-certified video devices, collaboration software and management tools throughout the Middle East.
