Video Surveillance System Software Image

Video Surveillance System Software

PVR is a monitoring system written in the C++ (Qt) technology, intended to record the video streams from IP cameras. With this software, its users can record, preview the recorded material and configure the system. Thanks to our architecture, the software is largely independent from the computing platform. The new generation platform and subsequent version of frameworks in use will not need the change of the whole firmware. The

Customer saved time and gained the effective system CCTV. 
XID Manager Image

XID Manager

XID Manager is a platform to control screens fitted in public transport vehicles, displaying dynamic passenger information. Thanks to the implementation of XID Manager, the burden of designing the layout of presented content rests with screen administrators.

Pixel saved the time of employees who designed the appearance of panels with passenger information in the programming editors and updated every board separately

from an external data carrier. Such service involved many people and often required further travel. Thanks to a specially developed software XID Manager, Pixel unburdened its team which could focus on the development of the company's products. 

What does XID Manager provide? From browser the user can log into the resources of the user's system, assign screens to concrete vehicles, receive information about condition of their update, design panels with passenger information as well as generate billings for advertisers.

Content Management System for Passenger Information

PXMDS is the development of software XID Manager. A new computing platform required from the company to write a new firmware. As a result of joint workshops, we decided that the new software would be developed mainly in web technology on account of challenges posed by thee new computing platform of the next generation. Therefore, we achieved compatibility with software XID Manager and increased the flexibility of managing the

data sent to screens by the on-board computer. Pixel is able to increase a set of data sent to screens without the need to manipulate the code or to add new modules. 

Thanks to the architecture of micro servers we obtained a scalable system and lower costs of software development.

Feedback summary: 

BoostHigh met expectations for quality and functionality. The final delivery was timely and on budget. Although some challenges arose during regression testing, the partnership was efficient and enjoyable. The team’s collaborative approach and exhaustive documentation enhanced results.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the R&D manager for PIXEL, a midsized company in Poland that manufactures passenger information systems, transportation center video recorders, and matrix and LCD displays. Specifically, we deal with the equipment and software for display tables in bus and tram stations.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with BoostHigh?

Our monitoring system comprises firmware and client and server applications. We use GPS to track vehicles and display times at stations.

The system is complex and we struggled to increase our developer capacity and comply with new software requirements for commercial bus displays. Our team wanted to utilize the LCD monitors for this purpose, which would require us to mix the commercial and passenger information systems. We hired BoostHigh to develop this new custom software solution in collaboration with us.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

BoostHigh built the web application with a Symfony backend. They used JavaScript and PHP for the frontend. We prepared the use cases and they worked in agile through a series of five milestones. The team prototyped each component of the software—which included a video recording system—before making the final delivery. The custom software ran on Linux and was based on the Qt framework.

What is the team composition?

We interacted with the project manager and a system architect. The latter focused on use cases and technical implementations.

How did you come to work with BoostHigh?

I met Mariusz (Co-Founder and CEO, BoostHigh) 6–7 years ago while managing a course for startups. He had just completed the program and wanted to establish a company. Later, we met and discussed the possibility of collaborating, starting our partnership a month later.

How much have you invested with them?

The preparation and use cases cost $30,000. We then spent $50,000 on the project’s subsequent stages.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started partnering with BoostHigh over four years ago, but this project lasted from February–October 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

The final software was on time and on budget. BoostHigh successfully delivered a high-quality solution that complied with our specifications. The team provided the full source code as well as complete documentation with clear explanations for each feature; the latter also included end user documentation.

Now, our team can sell the software to end users and provide complete implementations. The comprehensive source code enables us to make modifications with in-house programmers.

How did BoostHigh perform from a project management standpoint?

BoostHigh met our expectations without any obstacles or problems. They were efficient and collaborative on a range of project management tools including Jira, GanttProject, and Apache Subversion.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We appreciated the collaboration and have already recommended them. This was the first external partnership for our R&D department and it went well.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Some bug fixes failed during regression testing. What’s more, BoostHigh did not use regression testing for every functionality. Since testing wasn’t wide enough, some fixes created functionality problems in other areas of the application. But we resolved these incidents quickly and there was no significant impact on the end results.
