NuSpectra Multimedia has begun shipping version 5.0 of its SiteCam and SiteZAP Web streaming suites. The Mac-only systems have gained real-time audio streaming capabilities in their latest release. SiteCam 5.0 includes an integrated Web server that can serve up pages featuring live audio and video streams, live video snapshots and time-lapse QuickTime movies and archived images. It also allows for video capture in a number of image formats at various sizes, compression formats and quality settings, each labeled with text and graphics. It also includes built-in FTP support, motion detection, password protection, AppleScript support for custom automation, multi-camera support and quick set-up guides.
SiteZAP, a remote-controlled motorized pan/tilt/zoom system based on SiteCam 5.0, includes everything in SiteCam, plus a Flash interface for administration and remote control of the camera. SiteZAP comes bundled with a Sony Pan/Tilt/12x zoom camera, I.R. remote control and extra cable. Optional heated enclosures for outdoor use and other add-ons are available.
SiteCam requires a PowerPC Macintosh with video capture capabilities. Streaming audio/video and Web serving requires a static I.P. address. SiteCam sells for $149. SiteZAP starts at $1,995. A full-featured trial version of SiteCam 5.0 is also available for download at http://www.nuspectra.com.
