Cisco unveils surveillance camera for SMBs

Unveils Wireless-G PTZ Internet Camera.

Cisco’s Linksys unit this week unveiled a wireless Internet surveillance camera for small and midsize businesses.

The Wireless-G PTZ Internet Camera with Audio (WVC210) sends live video through the Internet to a Web browser. It allows SMBs to monitor their businesses for loss prevention, safety and security, and remote surveillance of high traffic areas such as point-of-sale, front lobbies, delivery docks and main entryways.

It features low-light performance for warehouse, office or night shooting. It also supports live streaming video, two-way audio and real-time alerts to motion detection.

The WVC210 includes simultaneous dual MPEG-4 and MJPEG CODECs for a combination of viewing and storage of video. MPEG-4 is optimal for real-time viewing of video, and MJPEG is designed for large volume storage to a NAS device.

The WVC210's audio capabilities include 2-way Audio, embedded microphone, external speaker and microphone input ports, and voice compression. Other features include support for IP Multicast, Real-Time Streaming Protocol, Real-Time Transport Protocol and 3GPP, which allows users to view video from multiple endpoints and client applications like 3G phones, and Quicktime clients on PCs or Wi-Fi phones, Cisco says.

The camera also supports 802.1p priority, 802.1q VLANs, and Dynamic DNS protocols, which are designed for multiple IP surveillance applications. The WVC210 can also be managed using HTTPS.

The WVC210 costs US$297 and is available now.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
