Swann debuts PenCam DVR

Swann Communications has announced its latest security monitoring device, the PenCam DVR. Designed with the look and capabilities of a normal pen, users can also record over three hours of color AVI video footage. Unlike the previous PenCam, which forced users to send the footage into a receiver up to 328 feet away, the PenCam DVR contains 2MB of built-in memory, along with a USB connector to transfer the videos into a PC or notebook. The pen can additionally record audio from up to three feet away using a tiny microphone.

Each PenCam DVR is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, which lasts roughly 90 minutes on a full charge. The suggested retail price is currently $120, and the pen should eventually be available from the Swann website.
