Leadtek Announces New Surveillance Camera

FREMONT, Calif. -- Leadtek Research Inc., the industry leader in video and IP technologies, announced today three new cutting-edge videophone and camera products, the Leadtek videophone BVP8882, Leadtek set-top box videophone BVP8759 and Leadtek network surveillance camera NSC3610. These innovative products have already been honored with three separate prestigious CES 2005 Innovations Design and Engineering Awards, to be announced at the 2005 International CES held January 6-9, 2005 in Las Vegas.

Leadtek NSC3610 -- Compact Surveillance Camera
The network surveillance camera NSC3610, a winner in the CES Integrated Home Systems Award category, is a unique, ergonomic and compact network-based surveillance camera equipped with MPEG-4 video and G.711 audio compression technologies. The camera is easy to use with a web-based user interface and intuitive software. Consumers can view live surveillance video from multiple cameras at the same time. The camera utilizes Digital Video Recording (DVR) technology to record video and audio with time stamps, which can be saved into a computer's hard drive. The MPEG-4 compression technology minimizes the size of the recorded data, yet offers high quality video playback. Motion detection can be programmed to send an alarm when any object moves in a defined area. Digital zoom can be used to enlarge a portion of the display for detailed investigation. The Leadtek NSC3610 surveillance camera also supports Wi-Fi connectivity. Affordably-priced at $200 SRP, the camera is ideal for consumer remote surveillance and monitoring applications.

"We are really pleased and honored to win such prestigious CES awards," said Mr. K. S. Lu, CEO of Leadtek Research Inc. "Leadtek has won similar awards in the past, but this is the first time we won three at the same time. CES recognizes that Leadtek continues to be a trail-blazer in video and IP technologies."
