image_1 = collector.current_image

## image_2 will not be None but may have a delay
image_2 = collector.blocking_get_new_image()

## image_2 and image_3 will not be the same
image_3 = collector.blocking_get_new_image(old_image = image_2)


Continuous Retrieval Context Manager

import rtsp
import time
with rtsp.BackgroundListener() as collector:
    _image = collector.blocking_get_new_image()

    while True:
