Swann Communications launches miniature surveillance system

MovieStick system features built-in camera, recorder


Santa Fe Springs, Calif. – (November 6, 2008) – Swann Communications, the global leader in security monitoring solutions, is proud to announce the MovieStick camera and recorder. One of the world’s smallest digital video recorders, the MovieStick is a great alternative to the camcorder as it allows people to shoot video and easily share it with their friends and family.

Weighing less than an ounce and slightly larger than a pack of gum, the MovieStick easily fits into your pocket or purse and can be taken anywhere. All footage is recorded on a removable Micro SD card which allows for easy transfer to a computer for viewing, sharing or storage. With a 2GB Micro SD card (sold separately), the MovieStick can record up to 2.5 hours of video. The device’s built-in lithium battery that regains its charge via a USB port located on the bottom of the MovieStick.

"The MovieStick is a bit of a departure from Swann’s standard DVR and cameras," commented Guy Pithie, Swann Communication’s Vice President North America. "With the increased popularity of social networking and video sharing websites, we thought our customers would like a product that enabled them to easily capture video and upload it to websites. This is especially true for cell phone and PDA users whose devices do not feature cameras that can capture video. I see this product being the perfect addition to any road trip barbecue or night out on the town."

The MovieStick has a MSRP of $119.99 and is coming soon to Swann’s retail and online resellers.
