TRENDnet Makes Available Two New Advanced Pan / Tilt / Zoom Internet Cameras

TORRANCE, CA--(Marketwire - November 19, 2010) - TRENDnet, a best-in-class wired and wireless networking hardware brand, today announces the availability of the ProView Wireless N Pan/Tilt/Zoom Internet Camera, model TV-IP612WN, and the ProView PoE Pan/Tilt/Zoom Internet Camera, model TV-IP612P. Both cameras leverage the same powerful enterprise class platform.

Shared Camera Features
The cameras' zoom capabilities help them stand out from the crowd. Ten times optical zoom combined with sixteen times digital zoom creates a commanding 26 times zoom factor. Auto focus further supports enterprise class zoom, and maintains a crisp focused image at all times.

Pan the cameras side-to-side a remarkable 330 degrees, and tilt them up-and-down 120 degrees from any Internet connection. Program Pan / Tilt Auto-Patrols to more easily monitor key security nodes.

Stream four unique video profiles simultaneously; record high quality H.264 704 x 480 (at 30 fps) video while streaming lower resolution 176 x 122 video (at 5 fps) to a compatible 3GPP mobile device. Image controls include brightness, contrast, sharpness, saturation, and black and white. When installed upside down, the image can be flipped and mirrored in order for users to see a video image that is not inverted. An infra red filter provides robust night vision. Samba support facilitates storing video on any network attached storage device. Create a recording schedule and define up to two motion detection windows of any shape or size.

LED indicators on the front of the camera display link and power status, and can be disabled. A micro-SD card slot provides an alternative to storing video on a network attached storage device. Input / Output ports on the back of the camera can be hardwired to an existing alarm system. The cameras come with a built in microphone, a port to connect third party speakers (in order to use the 2-way audio function), and an additional microphone-in port. A mounting plate on the bottom of the camera facilitates installation in a camera enclosure. A wall / ceiling mounting kit is included, and the off-white camera housing blends into most environments.

Unique Camera Features

The ProView Wireless N Pan/Tilt/Zoom Internet Camera, model TV-IP612WN, features embedded 300Mbps wireless n (802.1n) technology. Wireless n provides much greater coverage as compared to wireless g (802.11g) cameras. Additionally, when used over extended distances wireless n supports higher on average image quality and frame rate transmissions. Add this camera to your wireless network at the touch of a button with Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS). Simply press the WPS button on a WPS compliant router, or access point, then press the camera's WPS button and they automatically connect.

The ProView PoE Pan/Tilt/Zoom Internet Camera, model TV-IP612P, features Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology. No need to install this camera near a power source, power and data are received through a single Ethernet cable using Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology. PoE installations save installation costs and time when installing cameras in locations from a power source. For added flexibility, there is also an optional power port for traditional wired camera installations.
