"Axis Communications, a leader in network peripherals and networking technologies, today unveiled the AXIS 2100 Network Camera, a low cost, network-attached camera, the first ever based on the Linux operating system. A self-contained network camera with its own IP address, the AXIS 2100 can transmit live high quality JPEG images at up to 10 frames per second and store crisp digital images. The camera can be controlled, accessed and managed from any desktop over the Internet via any Web browser."

"The 2100 includes everything required for capturing and transmitting live video streams over data networks and the Internet," said Brendan Daly, U.S. business development manager, Axis Camera Division. "We chose Linux because it is a stable, proven operating platform with exceptional application development potential." The AXIS 2100 Digital Network Camera is available immediately with a suggested list price of $499."

"Unlike basic PC-attached cameras, the 2100 connects directly to Ethernet networks. Its built-in RS-232 serial port enables modem and ISDN connection for remote image monitoring and archiving, process control and alarm verification. Compact and versatile, it is suited for corporate and small/home office applications, as well as in manufacturing, educational and healthcare settings. The 2100 Network Camera is also ideal for Web site attraction or various intranet and remote monitoring applications."
