Free Online Education Program for Network IP Cameras

TAMPA BAY, FLORIDA - - IC INTRACOM, a global leader in the manufacturing and marketing of PC components, peripherals, cables and computer networking equipment, announced today the launch of a free online education program focused on the emerging Network IP Camera technology and its many applications.

A Network IP Camera is a stand-alone device which allows a user to view live, full motion video from anywhere on a computer network, even over the Internet, using a standard web-browser. Businesses are increasingly finding this a more economical alternative to high-priced Closed Circuit TV (CCTV) systems. And the use of existing LAN wiring greatly simplifies installation and eliminates the expense of installing additional cabling. Features such as motion sensing with email notification, simultaneous user login, and FTP upload capability further differentiate the device from current video technology.

A recent Frost & Sullivan report projects the Network IP Camera and Video Server market to reach $399 million by 2003 and $791 million by 2005 - up from just $73 million in 2000 - a ten-fold increase in just five years.

This represents a tremendous opportunity for computer retailers, VARs and security installers to differentiate themselves from the competition by being first to offer a truly unique and exciting product, says Ben Zupan, Director of Marketing for IC INTRACOM. We have found that the market is largely unaware of this technology and its huge potential. New killer-apps are emerging every day, which are adding fuel to the fire. The purpose of is to educate first, and sell product second. As a leader in this emerging field, we are well-positioned to do both.

The 12-week online program will address key topics such as:

* The Network IP Camera Trend
* Types of Cameras, Features & Accessories
* Installation, Setup & Operation
* Applications & Opportunities
* Sales & Marketing Strategies
* Educating the Market

The site will serve as an information center offering the latest industry news, articles, product reviews, reseller programs, applications and case studies. The course is open to anyone interested in learning more about Network IP Camera technology. To register, visit or e-mail
