The ClearVIEW HD-USB is the world’s first broadcast-quality HD PTZ camera with USB and Ethernet streaming built right into the camera. Now you can directly plug an HD PTZ camera directly into your PC – without the need for a separate capture device. Because the ClearVIEW HD-USB uses standard UVC drivers, no special USB drivers need to be installed. As a result it works seamlessly with any software application running on any OS that supports USB 2.0 devices.

The ClearVIEW HD-USB also supports H.264 video streaming. With a built in Ethernet network interface you can now do both IP control and IP Streaming directly from the camera. It supports either RTSP or HLS streaming protocols.

The camera features a 19x optical zoom lens with a 58.1-degree wide angle of view – wide enough to view everyone at a standard conference table, as well as capture an individual from a long distance at 3.2 degrees in a larger room. The zoom range provides great flexibility for a wide variety of applications.

Add the optional USB Quick Connect cable system and extend the USB, power and control up to 300 feet. This way you can mount the camera anywhere and not worry about the cabling distance from the computer.



Liberty Unveils New Hd Termination System

Quick, DIY field termination now a reality

by Jason Housel - The Enright Company

JasonCOLORADO SPRINGS, CO—System integrators have long been able to cut bulk cable of all kinds to length and terminate it in the field. HDMI cables, however, have been the exception—until now, with the introduction of Liberty AV Solutions’ new HD Termination System. Offered in bulk packages of either 250 or 500 feet, the cable kits can be cut to length and quickly terminated in the field using a simple hand tool and specially-designed HDMI locking connectors.LibertyRibbonCable

Beyond the cabling’s internal ribbon design that facilitates easy termination, round jacketing makes for easy pulls. In stock and now shipping, MSRPs for an HD Termination System begin at $728 for a 250-ft. bulk package (part #DL-HDMCBL-250). Other elements of the DIY terminating kit include a 10-Pack Connector Kit (part #DL-HDMCPK), which carries an MSRP of $154.

The CAD House

Cad Services for Hire

by Patti Enright - The Enright Company

PattiWhat began with a casual discussion over lunch about the challenges associated with systems integration projects evolved into an idea.  What if there were a better way to meet the needs of an unpredictable industry?  What if there were a dynamic resource that scaled with your workflow, understood the integration process and the budgets around them…..and could be accessed from any browser on any device from the office or the field?   What if it could help you avoid costly payroll dollars but still enjoy the “total team” on board?   And what if that resource had a fixed cost and even added margin to the bottom line?   

CADhouseWhat resulted is now The CAD House, www.thecadhouse.com, that since 2007 hasserved the system integration,  architectural, construction and design industries with digital design support services operating in the Cloud   At The CAD House, we have some new solutions for some old problems.

As former A/V professionals, The CAD House team has had first hand experience with the demands that electronic systems integrators can face. Balancing staff with workload, interacting with multipleCAD House external teams on a project, shrinking hardware margins and the high cost of delays are just a few problems that can plague a system integration firm as well as the independent contractor.   The CAD House can help “ease the pain” and improve the project process for internal as well as external teams.
 
You can learn more about The CAD House at thecadhouse.com or contact The Enright Company at 888.334.7773 and sales@enrightcompany.com.   You can schedule a demo or learn how to get started and take advantage of The Enright Company’s  “Introductory Offer” (valid until 6/15/12.)
