NEW YORK, Feb. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – Continuing its 164-year history of offering the Best, the Only and the Unexpected, Hammacher Schlemmer introduces the Best Digital Video Monitor after it outperformed all other models in tests for video and audio clarity, ease of use, range, and features.
The Best model’s camera delivered crisp, clear video and sound to the handheld monitor when it was 550′ away, providing more than 2X the range of lesser models that could only transmit up to 250′. Unlike lesser systems, The Best model was unaffected by interference from other electronics and consistently displayed 320 x 240 pixel images on the monitor’s 3 1/2″ color TFT display.
“The Best Digital Video Monitor transmits images over the Internet, allowing you to monitor your home or a sleeping baby anywhere in the world using an iPhone, iPad, or a computer,” explained Hammacher Schlemmer’s General Manager Fred Berns.
The Best model can be used with up to four cameras, it uses night vision to eliminate the need for disruptive lighting, and provides two-way transmission of sound between the camera and the monitor.
The Best model was the only monitoring system that recorded video and still images to its included SD memory card, it monitors and displays the room temperature, and can play music through the camera to soothe a tired infant or lonely pet.
