Even though Bronwen Heins is the busy president of an Ottawa real-estate firm , when her three-year-old daughter is stacking blocks , playing with dolls , throwing her food or napping angelically while at daycare , her mother doesn't have to miss a thing.
That's because digital video-recording technology combined with the Internet lets her
keep a real-time eye on her
preschooler Mehana's antics.Whenever Ms. Heins feels like tuning in , she
can fire up the computer on her
desk and watch live streaming video of her
daughter's daycare day.
Mehana attends the Kanata Research Park Family Centre , a non-profit daycare in the heart of Ottawa's high-tech neighbourhood , which is working to make live video available to all parents over the Internet by July.
A handful of parents , including Ms. Heins
, has been testing the technology since February.When the system is fully operational this summer , parents will be able to log on to the Net from any computer , head to the daycare's Web site and type in a password to open up windows displaying their toddlers finger-painting or having lunch.
The cameras are on 24 hours a day and , from strategic positions in the corners above each program room , capture wide-angle views of what is happening.
The footage is digitized , compressed and streamed to a video server.Through a broadband connection , the live footage is transmitted instantaneously from the server to the Web site , where parents can view what's being captured by the cameras in real time.
excited because of what the technology lets her
do.It's not about checking up on the teachers.It's about interacting with [ my ] child.The best part is that it keeps me closer to my child , says Ms. Heins
