LifeSize Icon 600

What Is It?

The Icon 600 is the latest video conferencing solution to be released by LifeSize and comes in four different versions. All four versions of the LifeSize Icon 600 come with the codec, Digital MicPod and remote control but where they differ is in the camera and some of the capabilities. Two of the versions have the Icon 600 codec bundled with the LifeSize Camera 200 and the other two have the codec bundled with the LifeSize Camera 10X.  For each camera there is a version that is 720P with single display abilities and one that is 1080P with dual display abilities. If that is a bit confusing here is a breakdown of the four different versions:

The necessary elements of a residential or small shop IP surveillance network system are few and simple. Even a large system can be easily integrated into a manageable network. However like all quality things it takes time and dedication to get it that way. Conveniently, once it’s created, even if something has to be switched out due to a failure or need to expand to keep up with demands, it won’t destroy all your hard work—you …

Love your analog camera but the CCTV system isn’t cutting it for you?  You’re not alone.  A lot of analog cameras are still going strong after the rest of the system bites the dust.  In fact, manufacturers have hardware that lets you keep your favorite cameras and give them the network surveillance lift.
