Sept. 19, 2007

LAS VEGAS , Sept. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- At the 53rd annual ASIS security exhibition, Smartvue Corporation, an award-winning leader in the IP video industry, today announced its next generation 802.11N draft wireless H.264 IP video surveillance and video analytics product lines.

"Wired Ethernet IP video will decline as 802.11N leads the network of the future," said Martin Renkis, CEO of Smartvue Corporation. "In 2005 Smartvue introduced the world's first 802.11N based H.264 IP video cameras and wireless network video recorders," said Renkis. "Our next generation products will offer the easiest to use and most cost effective professional grade IP video solutions in the industry, designed as alternatives to wired Ethernet systems and incorporating 802.11N Certification to seamlessly work with other 802.11N networking products."

The Burton Group recently released a report that predicts 802.11N wireless technology will quickly erode the wired Ethernet market. "802.11N marks the beginning of a rapid market shift away from LAN access deployments using traditional wired Ethernet," said senior analyst Paul DeBeasi. The report analyzes the differences between 802.11N and Ethernet (802.3) with regard to performance, security, manageability, cost and impact on staff and offers among many, the competitive advantages for 802.11N in ease of installation and mobility.

Smartvue S8 is designed to bring professional IP video solutions such as video surveillance and video analytics to much larger markets with the first plug and play, easy to use, integrated, and cost effective products. The new line of IP cameras, wireless network video recorders and the remote camera management server platforms are designed to support leading IT industry standards for cross browser and cross platform compatibility. New features such as mega-pixel sensors, integrated terabyte storage, multicasting, and the ability to manage multiple network video "edge device" recorders from a single, simple to use interface will bring next generation IP video innovation to the market at small business pricing.
