Product Information : Y-cam Black SD

Manufacturer's product description

The Y-cam Black SD utilizes 30 infrared LEDs to provide high levels of "invisible" light in dark environments. The intelligent photosensitive components can automatically turn on the LEDs in low light conditions or the user can select "moonlight view" which superimposes frames together to increase brightness (frame integration). Due to the unique way the Y-cam has been designed, you no longer have to be "tech-savvy" to install and use IP video cameras. The user-friendly installation procedure and intuitive web-based interface allows you to easily connect to your camera whenever and from wherever you wish. The Y-cam produces video at a maximum frame rate of 30fps displayed at up to 640 x 480 resolution, therefore allowing clear and smooth images to be viewed. The frame rate automatically adjusts to the available bandwidth. You can view live video with sound from virtually anywhere in the world as long as you have a computer, a web browser and an Internet connection. With the simple push of a button, you can take snapshots and record video directly onto your computer's hard drive. Using the built-in microSD card slot, the Y-cam Black SD no longer needs to be connected to a network or the Internet to store streaming video or motion alerts. Use the camera anywhere, even remote locations, and store video straight to microSD card, which is then viewable in your mobile phone, or via connection to a TV or PC. Unlike many cheaper models in the market, the Y-cam utilizes the MPEG-4 compression format. This is a valuable chipset that achieves high compression ratios, allowing smooth moving images to be streamed over lower bandwidth connections. With support for MJPEG and 3GPP the camera provides a live view for multiple platforms, including Apple Macs, and mobile devices including the iPhone and Blackberry. The Y-cam's live stream can be viewed using any mobile phone that can play VLC-compatible streams, such as Quicktime and RealPlayer. The Y-cam supports up to 16 simultaneous remote users. This allows easy and efficient video conferencing with minimum setup. Password protection also ensures no one able to access the cameras without authorization. The Y-cam can connect directly to a network or the Internet, either over Wireless (802.11b/g) networking, or over 10/100 with the supplied network cable. The Y-cam utilizes encryption methods such as WEP, and even the more powerful WPA and WPA2, so you can be sure your camera will only be accessed by authorized users.
