Linksys, a Division of Cisco Systems, announced the immediate availability of

the Linksys Wireless-G Pan/Tilt/Zoom (PTZ) Internet Camera with Audio (WVC200).

The new PTZ Internet Camera, part of the Linksys Business Series of products,

can send live video and audio through the Internet to be seen and heard through

a web browser anywhere in the world making for simple access for mobile workers

or remote users.

Unlike standard "web cams" requiring an attached PC, the PTZ Internet Camera

contains its own IP address, so businesses can easily connect it to an existing

Ethernet or Wireless network. The WVC200 comes equipped with a LCD screen on the

front of the camera that displays the IP address so multiple cameras can be

easily managed.

"We've designed a camera that provides small businesses the tool they need to

Sanjeev Gupta, Linksys regional sales director for Asia. "The camera can be

accessed over the internet, enabling the office to be remotely monitored. Users

can be alerted by email or phone when unexpected movement has occurred after

solution for providing peace of mind at the price small business budgets can
