New WebCam Will Zoom, Tilt, and Pan by Remote Control

Rearden Technology is now shipping SiteZAP, a WebCam solution that can be instructed via the Internet to zoom, tilt and pan.

With the SiteZAP software that runs on Macintosh computers, the hardware/software combination "lets Webmasters create the ultimate WebCam experience," says the vendor.

Brad Lowe, CEO of Rearden Technology, said: "The construction and security businesses are the first industries taking an interest in being able to monitor a remote site via the web. Whether for serious business or cutting-edge interactive entertainment, SiteZAP users can zoom in and see what's happening from any Internet connection equipped with a standard Internet browser."

The SiteZAP combo includes Sony's new EVI-D30 Remote Control Pan, Tilt & Zoom Camera, with 12x zoom, 6 position presets, auto-focus, motion-detection, and auto-tracking. The software includes an AppleScriptable application, plus a Web server plug-in, a scheduler, and two-way videoconferencing.

The complete SiteZAP WebCam solution carries a list price of $2795.
