IP phone system vendor Grandstream Networks Friday announced a new addition to its IP video phone product line. The GXV3005 features an FXO PSTN line port, which enables customers to receive both video telephony service over an IP network and their home landline traditional telephone service.
The additional FXO/PSTN port supports calling over and between two networks (IP and PSTN network) from a single phone and offers both a layer of security and back up for IP video phone communication by providing the option of a PSTN life line.
The GXV3005 includes a 5.6-inch TFTP adjustable LCD screen, a VGA camera with a range of viewing angles, and support for real-time video (up to 30 frames per second) using H.264/H.263 video standard at bandwidths as low as 32kbps and up to 1Mbps.
The GXV3005 list price is $325 and it will be available through Grandstream’s worldwide distribution channels beginning mid-December 2008.
