2-megapixel PoE night vision IP camera
TRENDnet's TV-IP262PI produces vivid 1280 x 1024 pixel (H.264 compression format) video in complete darkness for distances up to 12 m (40 ft).
Wired and wireless networking hardware supplier TRENDnet has announced the availability of its 2-megapixel Power over Ethernet (PoE) day/night dome Internet camera, model TV-IP262PI.
Billed as a powerful night vision IP dome camera which captures highly detailed video image quality, the tamper-resistant TV-IP262PI produces vivid 1280 x 1024 pixel (H.264 compression format) video in complete darkness for distances of up to 12 meters (40 feet). Users may manually pan the camera side-to-side and tilt it up-and-down to fix its final viewing position. There's no need to install the camera near a power source, as power and data are received through a single Ethernet cable via PoE technology. Integrated cabling allows for easy wall/ceiling mounting; the off-white color of the IP camera housing means it blends into most environments.
Users may define up to three motion detection windows with email alert, image snapshot, and continuous recording triggers. Scheduled recording sessions and defined video storage locations are achievable via Samba client support. Other features include: two-way audio support (microphone and speaker sold separately); date/time text overlay; a mask overlay to conceal sensitive areas; and image flip capabilities for upside-down installations. Video is viewable via mobile device with TRENDnet's free Apple and Android apps.
Users may set up recording schedules from the camera or using the included, proprietary SecurView Pro camera management software. Features of the software include: the ability to manage up to 32 TRENDnet cameras; compatible with Windows and Microsoft Server 2008; multiple language support; advanced camera viewing controls; scheduled and motion detection recording; real-time recording data; advanced archived video search tools; and camera mapping, to allow positioning of camera icons on an image such as a floor plan.
