Axis Says New Wireless Network Camera is World's Smallest

Axis on Tuesday introduced its 207MW wireless network camera, which it said is the smallest of its kind on the market. It features MPEG-4 and Motion-JPEG images at 1.3-megapixel resolutions up to 1280 x 1024, with wired capabilities also included. The 270MW also offers a built-in microphone, support for the Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 protocol, and light sensitivity down to two lux.

The 270MW uses the 802.11g wireless standard, can be configured and monitored via a Web browser, and supports the WEP 64-/128-bit, WPA, WPA2, AES, and TKIP network security protocols, with multiple levels of password-protected user access. Axis expects to ship the camera next month with a US$399 price tag.
