For Dimension please take a look at the pick where AVN80X is in the middle between two smart phones… Front of the AVN80X
Back of the  AVN80X
I connectedAVN80X to my network via SAPIDO Wireless 3 in 1 Pocket N+ Broadband Router (RB-1602), logged in and configure.
AVN80X have very easy to use simple user interface and it do works well with Safari, Opera and IE9... Remind me of my first router install, simple and easy.
AVN80X do support both ActiveX and QuickTime format, as with all IP camera's video
Do get a bit of lag but it around but in my opinion it less than one second barely noticeable…
In my company corporate security environment I testedAVN80X (as extra add on to our layer of security) with Ipod touch 4th gen and Android based Smart Phone
easy simple Apps install (Check (monitor/streaming) + Control theAVN80X ) for Ipod Touch and smart phone.
I like the quality of the pictures and videos/audio
I can control the digital PTZusing my fingers. Also I could clearly hear the audio, so I have a fully functional - mobile HD video/audio- surveillance system in the palm of my hand.

if the option DPTZ spark your interest you could see more on YouTube AVTECH introduction for EagleEyes on mobile device.
      really good video 

I tested and monitor my Co. cubical area when I was away (to see who is using my pen) and I did try it on my family and family pets Detection & Tracking and assess control for the front door pet door sensor.
I could see theAVN80X automatically locate the brother face in the frame, zoom in, and follow it. - good safe option to monitor guest or family member even under low light condition the quality of the picture and video pretty good as Live MOS Sensor - - gives you an extremely clear and detailed picture. -   The quality of the picture was great even in a low-light setting. Even with out any light in the room -AVN80X built in White LED on the front produces an enough light that can illuminate objects in total darkness at least twenty feet or more in front of it.
I did try to enabled Digital Smart Zoom, this feature did allow me to leave the controls, and the AVTECHAVN80X could zoom in on  the dog  movements as motion got detected…(also I used the option with pet door sensor attached to the back of theAVN80X)
Also you could use it as security camera with remote monitoring plus option to attach compatible sensors to monitor door/or windows opening away from the camera viewing angle… (Excellent option for Home/Corporate Security)
Myself as visual person I would like to mention few options I really like:
LED Status Indicators – gives me visual ability to check the current Internet &LAN connection status easily
SD Slot (micro SD)
PUSH VIDEO, 5-sec Event Video Call – excellent for today’s world emergencies
External I/O Devices Support – as sometimes event do happens away from the camera viewing angle but you could still hear the audio and call police if need it…

here is more info about this excellent option

On the final note: AVN80X IVS 1.3 Megapixel Network Camera by AVTECH is good home or corporate security solution for anyone… I do recommend it as a best IP camera total security solution at the present time...
In the future I would like to see upgrades at lease 2 Megapixel or more, option to order camera with Kevlar fibber body and shatter proof glass dome for military applications.
The Price of theAVN80X IVS 1.3 Megapixel Network Camera by AVTECH will be announced soon ( I think it would be around $200 - $240 USA more or less but do not quite me on the price) – if you interested please keep checking
Few years ago it would cost you at least $1000 or more... (ButAVN80X IVS 1.3 Megapixel Network Camera by AVTECH you could get it for much more less but with more user friendly futures)
Here are few reviews from others

this camera available in Canada now

  1. If we take about high resolution or High Definition Means Better Evidence, for all time here

  2. Recent numbers show that 63% of US households own a pet - that's 71.1 million homes and families with dogs, cats, iguanas, parakeets, fish, ferrets, potbellied pigs, etc, etc., Taking care of a pet is tougher than taking care of an infant, since our pets can't speak. Hence, making sure your pet is safe and happy when you leave it alone at home should be a priority for all pet owners. One of the simplest ways of watching over a pet remotely is by using some sort of webcam software like GotoCamera that is easily available online these days. Thanks to technology and some very smart people who are working on making things easier for us, you can now use your basic webcam to monitor your pets while you're away from them.

  3. I really care for HD and HQ at first for any camera. I really don't have any camera by AVtech but my friend had. It was good and I still remember that he got many products by AVtech.
