Model Info

The integrated Power over Ethernet option eliminates the need for a power outlet, as power is supplied to the camera via the network cable, and a steady power stream can be guaranteed with a UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply).  Furthermore, the unique combination of simultaneous Motion JPEG and MPEG-4 streams allows systems to be optimized for both image quality and bandwidth-efficiency.  Additionally, the product offers a complete set of security features such as multi-level password protection, IP address filtering and HTTPS encryption.
