3G-enabled Compro IP cameras
Video surveillance utilizing 3G wireless technology has many advantages. With the 3G wireless connectivity come the lower cabling costs and simpler installation, as deploying 3G wireless cameras does not require building and maintaining network infrastructures or WiFi hotspots. And unlike installing cameras with WiFi or wired Internet connection, the installation site of 3G cameras is not subject to the availability of WiFi hotpots or Ethernet ports.
3G-enabled Compro IP Cameras
Compro deems it a great value adder to add 3G support to IP surveillance products. Therefore, in the not distant future, Compro NC150 indoor camera and NC450 outdoor camera will start offering the optional 3G upgrade via a plugged-in 3G wireless dongle. Compro NC150 indoor box camera features 1.3MP, H.264, D/N, etc., and the new 3G capability will help get rid of cluttered cables and make relocation of the camera, whenever necessary, relatively easy. Compro NC450 outdoor bullet camera is also getting the 3G treatment. The added 3G support means the NC450 can be conveniently installed in locations where network cabling is too difficult, expensive, or invasive to install, or where WiFi signals are not accessible, such as beaches, temporary venues, ancient buildings, etc. That said, 3G capability will make the 1.3 MP, H.264, D/N NC450 network camera even better suited for outdoor use.
3G-enabled Compro Video Server
Compro NC740 video server will also go 3G. The NC740 supports 4-CH H.264 encoding at full D1 resolution and at a total of 120 FPS. The 3G support and the wide-area coverage of 3G networks make NC740 ideal for applications in mobility surveillance. In the case of public transportation, bus companies can outfit their fleets with analog cameras and a Compro NC 740 video server to provide real-time mobility surveillance. The video server can record and locally store video evidence of road accidents or unruly passenger behavior later used for distinguishing responsibility. In all, by adding the 3G support, Compro?s offerings of IP surveillance solutions wil become more flexible than ever.
