A Far Cry From Previous Attempts at Video Phones
Unlike previous solutions, which were not only extraordinarily expensive but also had low video quality due to limitations of standard phone lines, the i2Eye VideoPhone uses a fatter broadband connection to deliver sharper, clearer video. Another problem that previous solutions encountered was that you needed proprietary equipment at each location. Although two i2Eye VideoPhones can certainly communicate directly with each other, they're also compatible with most industry standard protocols, enabling communication with anyone that uses Microsoft NetMeeting.
Smooth, Jitter-Free Pictures
Using advanced video compression technology, the i2Eye VideoPhone maximizes the image and audio quality within the available bandwidth. The i2Eye VideoPhone can send and receive video at up to a full 30 frames per second for smooth, jitter-free video.
Fast, Easy Set-Up
Easy-to-use set-up wizards guide you step-by-step through the setup process. You'll be up and working in minutes! The wizards also make it easy to make changes to personalize your videoconferencing display.
Make Calls Anywhere in the World Without Long Distance Fees
Because all the dialing is done through IP addresses, you can essentially call anywhere in the world for nothing. You can even assign a regular phone number for each person you call frequently. Because most home users have cable modem/DSL connections with 'dynamic' IP addresses, which can change every time they log on, a remote server at D-Link keeps track of the changes (at no charge), so when you call your best friend, the call is routed to the correct home. The only costs you'll incur are your monthly Internet charges that you're probably already paying for anyway.
Use it for Remote Monitoring of Your Home
Because the system can automatically answer an incoming call, you can use it to see what's happening inside your home. Or point the camera outside through a window and you'll be able to tell if it snowed, or if it's a nice day on the lake.
Talk on the Phone as You Normally Would
Although the system has a built-in microphone, you also have the option of plugging in a regular phone and talking over that. This is an ideal way to eliminate echoes or speakerphone effect. You can even connect an answering machine to take messages if you don't answer the call!
Includes a Handy Remote for Easy Access to Features
The remote control included with the i2Eye VideoPhone allows you to easily answer an incoming videophone call or initiate a new one. The built-in Caller ID provides privacy protection, so you can know who's calling before you answer.
Easily connect any Ethernet Device to a Wireless Network
Now you can finally hook up your Ethernet ready products to your home's network or to the Internet. The Ethernet-to-Wireless Bridge plugs into the Ethernet ports now commonly found on game systems, ReplayTV PVR, and IP network cameras (like our Panasonic, D-Link, and the D-Link i2eye video phone). Uses a browser-based configuration setup wizard. Connects to 802.11b-compliant wireless networks.
