HAI is developing a 1.3 Mega Pixel Mini Dome IP Camera (HAI part number 68A11-1) that is capable of serving real-time streaming video to various devices, including being viewed at home or over the Internet on a PC, OmniTouch 5.7e or OmniTouch 10p.
It is also visible on handheld mobile devices such as a PDA, Smartphone (or other device running Windows Mobile using HAI Snap-Link Mobile or HAI WL3). Additionally, it can be viewed on an iPhone without any additional software.
"Since each Mini Dome IP cam has a built-in web server with network interface, it may not require additional hardware, software, or programming to view live video transmissions," HAI president Jay McLellan explained. "After configuring the network settings, the camera may be accessed from anywhere with an Internet connection."
In addition to MJPEG real-time streaming, the Mini Dome IP Camera employs an H.264 main profile codec for a high resolution broadcast and a frame rate of 30fps @720p. With the Power over Ethernet (IEE 802.3af) feature, there is no need for power outlets, which significantly reduces the cost of cabling and installation. Additionally, its light weight and compact size offer a quick and simple installation on ceilings or walls inside our outside of houses and buildings.
The Mini Dome IP Camera is expected to be available during the second quarter of 2010.
