Sunnyvale, Calif. OmniVision Technologies, Inc. plans to demonstrate a reference design that provides a digital security camera solution for MPEG-4 video systems using the company's OV7720 CameraChip sensor at the International Security Conference (ISC) West in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Home SecuCam reference design is said to be the first to use video over the 805.15.4/Zigbee wireless network.
Home SecuCam operates at very low power, enabling it to remain in standby mode for months on battery power. With up to 16 channels, it can support multiple cameras to cover multiple areas and can be daisy chained to have longer distance coverage over a greater area. The solution does not require expert knowledge for installation and does not require an IP router, said OmniVision.
The prototype of the Home SecuCam reference design being demonstrated at ISC West (OmniVision booth # 7087) uses chipset solutions that provide MPEG-4 compression and RF 2.4G wireless networking. The Home SecuCam solution is also suitable for interfacing to a modem, Ethernet connection or a GSM/3G mobile network for remote monitoring.
