    Samsung’s New 360 Pan/Tilt/Zoom Dome Web Camera Server Updates Its Own IP Addresses
Secaucus NJ, June 6, 2001 – Samsung’s new Webthru SWC-160 Pan/Tilt/Zoom Dome Web Camera Server with 360 "endless" horizontal rotation, is a member of a new class of surveillance cameras from Samsung custom made for the internet. In addition to having its own built-in web server, it has its own Dynamic IP Address system to automatically compensate for changes in its IP Address.

According to Samsung Camera technicians, Dynamic IP Address can greatly reduce the "backroom" webmaster work of manually assigning and changing IP addresses, especially important for companies and institutions deploying multiple cameras.

Because the required internet circuitry is built into the camera body (The SWC-160 has its own 32 bit RISC CPU running its own internet site via embedded Linux), the camera is exceptionally easy to install and highly efficient. Samsung’s family of Webthru cameras all use new Wavelet image compression technology so they provide more image information much faster than was available than in the past.

Webthru cameras all feature motion detection and alarm, image compression and decompression rate controls, on-line remote upgrade of software, and external video input.
