IP Camera Focusing Device ReleasedBy: John Honovich, Published on Jul 26, 2009
Veracity has released an appliance, called Pinpoint, that simplifies IP camera focusing. The appliance allows an installer to connect their laptop to the local network immediately next to the camera. This is useful for cameras without coaxial outputs, for installers who do not want to use spot monitors or for those who want to be able to zoom in and use VMS client/web browsing for tuning.
The MSRP is only $49.95 USD and the unit is small, making it an attractive tool for installers.
Compare to Pointsource - a device that integrates a battery and 2 port PoE switch allowing focusing and/or camera use without a network in place.
