Cisco Linksys PVC2300 Webcam

Cisco Linksys PVC2300 Webcam

3.5 7 $445.00 - $445.00
The PVC2300 is a Power over Ethernet (PoE) device so it can be powered from a PoE Switch or power injector via Ethernet cabling. This enables installations near ceilings on rooftops or anywhere where power outlets may not be available. The PVC2300 Camera can be mounted on any Pan-Tilt (PT) base that supports the Pelco D protocol and can be remotely rotated and controlled through an RS-485 interface. The PVC2300 also has two input and two output ports which can be used for connecting the camera to an alarm panel, siren, Passive InfraRed (PIR) sensors, smoke detectors, lighting switch (on/off), door sensors, etc. The PVC2300 uses a high-quality progressive scan CCD Sensor delivering good quality video. The CCD sensor also has low-light sensitivity so video can be captured even in very low light environments or during "near dark" times of day. Additionally, the camera incorporates an IR Cut Filter which, when used with a separate IR lamp, allows for video capture in total darkness. The PVC2300 Surveillance Camera supports dual codecs (MPEG-4 and MJPEG). Both codecs can be used simultaneously. MPEG-4 gives efficient bandwidth consumption with good quality compression and is optimal for real-time viewing of video. MJPEG gives optimal video quality with lossy compression making it ideal for large volume storage to a NAS device. The PVC2300's audio capabilities include 2-way Audio, embedded Microphone, external speaker and microphone ports, and voice compression.

Per Linksys it requires much more of their products exclusively until they fix it and correct the documentation that states what this camera is capable of theoretically though omits the fact that it doesn't work.... See more

"...They definatly do the trick for small business. I think they're overpriced though.
Yes Cisco is awesome, and quality is very good, but I think these cameras are worth more around the $150 - $175 range.
