Product Overview
®
Cisco Small Business Video Surveillance products provide customizable ways for small business
owners to monitor and protect their companies. These high-quality solutions can be optimized for
many different applications and sites. Each camera can be quickly mounted using the bracket
included in the package. Their compact form factor also enables the cameras to be put inside a
protective enclosure for interior or exterior installations. The cameras use removable CS-mount
lenses and can be customized with optional zoom, wide-angle, vari-focal, auto-iris, and other types
of lenses as required for a specific application or setting.

Data Sheet
The Cisco WVC2300 Wireless-G Business Internet Video Camera (Figure 1) can be mounted on
any pan-tilt (PT) base that supports the Pelco D protocol and can be remotely rotated and
controlled through an RS-485 interface. It has two input and two output ports, which can be used
to connect the camera to an alarm panel, siren, passive infrared (PIR) sensors, smoke detectors,
lighting switch (on/off), door sensors, etc.
The Cisco WVC2300 uses a high-quality progressive-scan charge-coupled device (CCD) sensor,
delivering good-quality video. The CCD sensor also has low-light sensitivity so video can be
captured even in environments with very low light or during near-dark times of day. Additionally,
the camera incorporates an infrared (IR) cut filter that, when used with a separate IR lamp, allows
for video capture in total darkness.
The Cisco WVC2300 camera supports dual codecs (MPEG-4 and MJPEG). Both codecs can be
used simultaneously. MPEG-4 gives efficient bandwidth consumption with good-quality
compression and is optimal for real-time viewing of video. MJPEG gives optimal video quality with
lossy compression, making it ideal for large-volume storage to a network attached storage (NAS)
device.
The Cisco WVC2300’s audio capabilities include two-way audio, embedded microphone, external
speaker and microphone ports, and voice compression. With extensive feature support, such as IP
multicast, Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP), Real Time Protocol (RTP), and 3rd Generation
Partnership Project (3GPP), it enables video to be viewed from multiple endpoints and client
applications such as 3G phones, and QuickTime clients on PCs or Wi-Fi phones. The wireless
capabilities of the WVC2300 include support for 1x2 multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO),
providing better range than traditional 802.11g, and strong wireless security utilizing Wi-Fi
Protected Access (WPA). Support for multiple network protocols like 802.1p priority, 802.1Q
VLANs, and Dynamic DNS (DDNS), make the solution ideal for multiple IP surveillance
applications. The cameras can also be managed securely using HTTPS.
