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.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
