Y-Cam Introduces New Bullet HD Camera Series

Posted in Bullet Camera Review with tags , , , , on December 4, 2011 by zackduncan

Y-Cam Bullet HDY-Cam has just announced the launch of the company’s newest product, the Y-Cam Bullet HD. Y-Cam released its Y-Cam Bullet Network Camera almost one year ago and many people raved about the hardware and its functionality. However, despite all the praise for the hardware, there was an equal measure of disappointment in the software, which was said to be lacking grace at the time. But Y-Cam is looking to put naysayers to rest with its foray into HD.

This new revision of Y-Cam’s hardware delivers you the same great aesthetic looks of the original camera while simultaneously making the transition into the HD market with 720p video capture at 30 frames per second. This allows you to view everything you could in the past with the previous model, though in high-quality HD this time.

Obviously storage is a big concern for anybody looking into HD surveillance cameras. Because the camera records better quality images, it also requires a greater amount of storage space. Thankfully, the brains over at Y-Cam have already taken that into consideration as video is captured in H.264, reducing file sizes and network bandwidth, making storage less of a burden.

In addition to that, 12 LED lights are outfitted on the camera for infrared night vision and the Bullet HD also features Power over Ethernet allowing it to easily fit into any nook or cranny without the need of a nearby power outlet. This allows for greater flexibility in positioning your cameras, making life easier on you.

The Bullet HD also comes with WiFi connectivity supporting 802.11n high speed connection to your home or small business network. You will also find your usual mix of security camera features, like detection recording, alarms, two-way audio and recording, integrated microSD, NAS and home/small business server, etc…

Pricing may be a little steep for some, especially if you are considering getting this for your home, as the new Bullet HD camera from Y-Cam will run you $671.50 US.
