With products aimed at both the low and high ends of the security market, network camera manufacturers are witnessing steadily increasing interest in this next generation technology.
While the current consensus is that network cameras won't soon replace existing analog and digital cameras, these web-friendly products, with built-in servers and Internet and Ethernet capabilities that surpass the capabilities of their analog counterparts, are becoming attractive to everyone from homeowners and small business people to large, multi-campus organizations.
