1. Introduction
Following the high standards of GRUNDIG IP Cameras, this IP Camera is capable of serving real-time streaming
and makes the images run smoothly (25 images/second).
In addition to MJPEG real time streaming, this IP Camera develops a superior H.264 main profile codec to
smoothly transfer High Definition surveillance data through the Internet without distortion. Attributing to the IP
Camera’s flexible platform, the camera can be applied in various installation locations including shops, stores,
banks, parking lots, factories and building surveillance.
