D-Link released a wireless version of its popular D-Link i2eye VideoPhone. The wireless i2eye turns any TV into a broadband videophone without the need to run a network cable from the Internet connection to the television. The new D-Link wireless videophone works with any television (PAL or NTSC) and broadband connection.
The i2eye features an adjustable tilt/focus camera lens and advanced video compression technology, the new D-Link i2eye (DVC-1100) streams video at up to 30 frames per second so video can be viewed with minimal frame loss. The wireless i2eye streams full-duplex audio to the television speakers so that users can speak naturally with one another through the unit's built-in microphone.
The i2eye VideoPhone uses the H.323 protocol for video streaming over the Internet allows i2eye to connect to other devices based on the same protocol for communications, including popular Web-based videoconferencing applications such as Microsoft NetMeeting. The i2eye address book stores up to 50 IP addresses or registered i2eye ID numbers so making outbound calls is effortless.
The D-Link wireless i2eye can be set to display video calls in either picture-in-picture or full screen mode and automatically adjusts contrast levels for a perfect picture. Privacy controls are set at various levels using i2eye's simple onscreen menus. Video Privacy allows callers to hear but not see the receivers, Audio Privacy allows callers to see but not hear receivers and Do Not Disturb will reject incoming calls altogether. When an inbound call is detected by i2eye the incoming caller's information is displayed on screen while either the integrated ringer sounds or a connected phone rings. Users can then accept or reject the call, which is displayed full screen or picture-in-picture.
The D-Link DVC-1100 is IEEE 802.11b standard and compliant with both 802.11b and 802.11g wireless networking technologies. Advanced wireless security features including SSID filtering and 64/128/256 bit WEP encryption ensure the security of the wireless transmissions.
