Night-vision capability and a built-in omnidirectional microphone are two of the features of the new Zonet IP security cameras, launching with the ZVC7630 and its wireless counterpart, the ZVC7630W. With their own IP address and built-in web server, they connect directly to the user's network, and they can be remotely accessed from a standard web browser. The cameras feature image quality up to VGA (640×480), with transfer rates of 30fps. Both models offer the ability to record streaming video with sound to a hard drive, schedule and upload images to FTP, or send images via email.

INTERACTIVE TOUCH DISPLAY
CI Lumen is offering interactive displays and all-in-one computer displays integrated with 3M MicroTouch Dispersive Signal Technology (DST) in sizes ranging from 32in. to 46in. DST gives display integrators an ideal solution for large-format interactive applications that require fast, accurate, reliable touch response. 3M claims that the screen's operation is unaffected by surface contaminants and that the included Dynamic Touch feature ignores static objects on the screen and allows for multi-user touch capabilities.

WIRELESS KEYPAD/REMOTE CONTROL
Universal Remote Control has introduced the KP-900, a keypad remote that controls all audio and video equipment in a home, simplifying and automating the operation of even the most complex home theater system. For maximum flexibility, it can be mounted on a wall or used as a handheld remote, making it ideal for retrofitting into homes with existing entertainment systems, as well as for new homes. The keypad is compatible with iPods and other portable music players, and it comes in three finishes: white, light almond, and black.

The shallow-profile PDM-W projects only 4in. from the wall when fully retracted, and it has a 24in. depth when its arms are fully extended. It comes with a silver or black powder-coat finish.
