New DCS-900 is a Web-Based Internet Camera That Serves Live Video for Remote Viewing and Monitoring to Consumers

Irvine, CA, September 15, 2003 — D-Link, a global leader in the design and development of connectivity and communications technologies for the digital home and the small to medium business markets extended its award-winning line of popular Internet security cameras with the release of the D-Link DCS-900 Video Monitoring Internet Camera. An affordable and compact web-based camera, the DCS-900 delivers live video over the Internet for real-time viewing and monitoring.

With the DCS-900, a user can access the camera from any Internet-based location with a browser and access real-time streaming high-quality video at 320 x 480 pixel resolution at up to 20 frames a second. The D-Link Internet camera includes a powerful built-in fully integrated web-server that contains its own IP address and acts as an independent device that doesn't require a PC to operate. Users can also implement any one of many FREE Dynamic DNS services such as DynDNS.org, zoneedit, No-IP.com, Sitelutions, CJB.net, ChangeIP.com, miniDNS, DtDNS, DNSExit, and DNS Made Easy, to keep track of the IP address of the camera and to assign an easy to remember, personalized web address for viewing the video stream from the DCS-900 over the Internet.

"Delivering live video from virtually any Internet connection worldwide makes this new D-Link camera an ideal solution for the digital home consumers who would like to monitor and have access to pre-recorded captured video from inside their home for security when they are on the go, just getting out or on a business trip," said Steven Joe, President of D-Link. "We've taken our extensive experience in designing and developing award winning surveillance cameras and incorporated that technology into this D-Link Internet security camera.

"The new camera delivers a robust suite of security and monitoring features at the most affordable price in the industry," added Joe.

With an easy-to-use web-based user interface, the D-Link DCS-900 Internet Camera can be set up and configured in a matter of minutes to independently monitor any site. The unit can be set to record a video feed with date and time stamp to create an archived record for later viewing. The D-Link Camera includes password protected management software that allows users to monitor up to four cameras at one time, providing a large amount of coverage with a small footprint.

The D-Link DCS-900 Video Monitoring Internet Camera connects easily to any wired Ethernet network through standard CAT5 cable and can be configured in minutes using the simple web browser interface. The included IPView LITE management software allows for the simultaneous monitoring of up to four cameras.

In the home the compact design of the camera makes it easy to mount in tight spaces for viewing and monitoring in an area such as a nursery room, bookcase, entryway or in a small office. The DCS-900 can be installed over a store's front counter, storage room, warehouse or virtually anywhere that needs monitoring to secure property.
