Apple Computers & alternatives to Microsoft

There not much more we can say here. In general terms, most casual computer users would be better served by a Mac than a computer from one of the many providers of Windows based systems. In the many areas of personal creativity, there simply is no match.

Apple Computer is widely accepted as the leader in providing users with the most up-to-date and technologically advanced computer hardware, software, and peripherals. Over the years, Apple has been the leader on such innovations as multimedia CD-Rom, USB, and Firewire, not to mention the iPod MP3 music player.

Our network analysis work is not limited to just computer networks. We also can analyze other types of TCP/IP or other Ethernet based networks that utilize a combination of devices such as: computers, servers, switches, bridges, controllers, PLCs, printers, handheld devices, wireless devices, IP phones, network cameras, etc...

Computer Based Camera Systems

These types of monitoring and surveillance systems, also known as IP network camera systems, offer a wide range of options that older CCTV camera systems do not match. Camera images can be archived for easy access, images can be customized and/or filter for optimal effect, and the cameras in a typical system can be accessed by any other computer or handheld device connected to the system.

IP network camera systems are web based, in terms of their functionality.

These systems are much easier to install, often require much less cabling, and can be retrofitted to work wirelessly. The cameras themselves come in many varieties and configurations. They can be purchased for top-of-the-line quality of picture, or in mass quantities to cover wide areas or complex monitoring situations.
