Network Camera Offers Audio AND Video Conferencing Capabilities
The new PTC-401C IP Network PTZ camera from ELMO combines digital video output from a built-in Web server with MPEG-4/ motion JPEG compression; and analog video output in one unit while making the digitized video available over LAN, WAN, or public Ethernet connections. Excellent for surveillance, Elmo’s first day/night IP camera uses a removable IR cut filter to improve images in low light. Its audio functions also make it effective in videoconferencing systems. The camera is designed for indoor installation and employs a dual compression package which delivers simultaneous, MPEG-4 and M-JPEG video, making it possible to adjust image size and quality to meet the needs of a specific application or changing network conditions. It delivers up to 30fps for users viewing with either the client software or Web browsers.
The camera allows analog video to be fed to a standard CCTV system, viewed and recorded with Elmo’s proprietary software over the network, as well as remote viewing with any Web browser. For more information, visit www.elmousa.com.
Keeping an Eye on Things
The VIDEYE and MODEYE cameras from NetMedia, Inc. feature contemporary styling with a range of indoor applications. The camera’s “eyeball” swivels and adjusts for the desired field of view. The mounting ring secures the internal base to the mounting surface, giving the camera a low profile on either a wall or ceiling mount. Its exterior ring is 4.6 in. in diameter and has a low 1.5-in. height profile. All the wiring is routed internally for a smooth, sleek appearance. Both the VIDEYE (general purpose security camera) and the MODEYE (camera and modulator in one assembly) are available with a choice of B/W, color and IR sensitive color cameras. NetMedia’s exclusive CAModulator can be found in the MODEYE model. This feature is a self-contained camera and modulator that converts the video signal to a selected television channel.
