Brickcom launches World 1st - Triple extendable covert camera

Hsinchu, Taiwan

Brickcom is launching a new breed within its camera portfolio: the Hydra series. As the name suggests, the product is capable of connecting up to 3 cameras with transmission cables.
The Hydra series is being marketed as the world's 1st simultaneous triple extendable view HDTV IP camera, offering a substantial advantage in the total cost of ownership (TCO), ease of use, and applicability. The company believes that the debut of the Hydra series is another symbol of Brickcom's commitment to drive innovation and to bring the best products to the market.

The first member of the Hydra series is the PH-100Ah Kit. The default configuration of the PH-100Ah Kit consists of 1 unit of VB-03 video box and 1 unit of PH-100Ah super mini camera, and has the capability of connecting up to 3 PH-100Ah cameras.

With the Hydra series, the PH-100Ah Kit offers 2 cameras for the cost of less than 2 regular cameras, and 3 cameras for the cost of less than 3 regular cameras. This triple-camera system runs merely on one IP address, one PoE cable, and one Ethernet port. In addition to the reduced equipment cost, users will also benefit from the cost savings on the labour, time, and maintenance.

The PH-100Ah camera offers an extended view, if connected to the VB-03 via the extension cable. The user is able to install the VB-03 in one place, whilst installing the PH-100Ah in another place and then monitor an area where a traditional camera could not if installed there.  As the equipment is designed to serve only for imaging purposes, this Triple Extendable View Covert Camera system is small and highly discreet so as to fit into small areas and form an inconspicuous viewing application.

Up to 3 PH-100Ah can be attached to the VB-03 to give multi-purpose monitoring for various applications. With 3 PH-100Ah cameras attached to the VB-03, the PH-100Ah Kit can either monitor 3 different places simultaneously, or monitor a particular place from 3 distinct viewpoints. Such applications can also be achieved by 3 conventional cameras, but the PH-100Ah Kit possesses an almost unbeatable advantage when the TCO is taken into consideration.

More Hydra series cameras are in the pipeline to be released in the near future, in order to provide the user with a variety of choices in terms of various form factors, optics, and imaging capability.
