COM One Services introduced its Videomodem technology, which offers a means of capturing and transmitting real-time or recorded video information to web sites. By installing video cameras at specific areas of interest for information such as traffic or weather conditions, the images are transferred to an Internet server to be viewed by web surfers in real time. When used as a surveillance system, the Videomodem allows companies to monitor work flow, visitors, or restricted/secure areas easily and confidently. Compact and capable of accommodating up to four cameras, the Videomodem kit includes real-time Linux-based server software.
