Y-cam Knight SD
Infrared Night Vision
Y-cam Knight SD utilises 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).
Quick and simple setup
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.
High quality video with sound
Y-cam produces video at a maximum frame rate of 30fps displayed at up
to 640×480 resolution, therefore allowing clear and smooth images to be
viewed. The frame rate automatically adjusts to the available bandwidth.
Motion detection alerts via email
Y-cam comes with useful alarm tools that will keep you notified if any
motion is detected. It has built-in functions that can generate alarm
triggers via email and by uploading images straight to a website.
Unlike conventional activity detection, the Y-cam uses vector
information to detect motion, therefore achieving better reliability
against false alarms.
Monitor and record live video and audio from anywhere
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.
Record video or motion alerts to microSD card for local backup
Using the built-in microSD card slot, the Y-cam Knight 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.
Full Macintosh and Linux compatibility
The Y-cam SD is now fully compatible with the Apple Macintosh and its
associated devices. Mac users can now view live video with audio (using
QuickTime), control the motion detection settings within a browser
(using Adobe Flash), take snapshots from the live feed, and also record
footage locally using QuickTime Pro.
MPEG-4 compression for reduced bandwidth and storage
many cheaper models in the market, the Y-cam utilises 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.
Multi-client access and password protection
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 authorisation.
Secured wireless connectivity
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 utilises 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 authorised users.
Y-cam Knight SD can be wall-mounted, ceiling-mounted or placed on a
flat surface using the supplied camera stand. Fully compatible with the
Y-cam Shell external enclosure for outdoor use.
