Bosch. The company has added the first moving camera to its Advantage Line. The VEZ-400 mini PTZ camera offers features more typically found in larger PTZ domes. Among these are a 26x optical zoom for an increased monitoring range, and easier identification of objects and people. It is ideal for schools and small-to mid-sized corporate offices, among other applications. The VEZ-400 measures 4.4 inches in diameter, making it less than half the size of traditional pan-tilt-zoom cameras, as well as 20 percent smaller than most other minidomes. The compact size enables it to fit well into limited space and makes it ideal for discrete surveillance. Available in charcoal or white, the camera is designed for indoor or outdoor applications.

Motorola Solutions/Extreme Networks. The Altitude 4511 wallplate access point, in conjunction with Motorola Solutions, is a mobility solution that provides powerful Wi-Fi for college campuses and multiple dwelling units such as residence halls and medical facilities. Its modular design and innovative form factor eases installation, snapping into place in minutes instead of hours. Built on operational and architectural flexibility, the Altitude 4511 AP provides high-performance and powerful coverage, as well as scalable deployment options that can lower costs. At the heart of the Wi-Fi solution are compact wallplate access points (iPhone-sized devices) that “snap on” to existing Ethernet ports. They feature a 400mW radio, compared with some solutions that operate at 40mW, giving them a boost for increased coverage of up to three times. Each long-range device (26 dBm) can service up to 10 rooms at a time, making it possible to cover a 200-unit building in hours, not days.
