Compex and Eagletron announce plans to pair products and promotion for their new partnership

Eagletron, computer vision and robotics innovator, and Compex, wireless connectivity and networking creative power, have announced an exciting new partnership combining two technologies to create a wireless or wired pan/tilt webcam package. The companies are set to release their first collaborative effort May 28, which combines the Compex NP26G -USB 802.11g wireless router and the Eagletron TrackerPod, a pan and tilt webcam tripod. The NP26G -USB and TrackerPod duo is the first to allow users to set up an 802.11g wireless webcam server with pan/tilt capability.


"I am very excited about this partnership. It is one of real benefit to the consumer and the two companies’ technology fits well together," said Michael Liu, general manager for Compex.

"We’re looking forward to adding networking and wireless capabilities to our products through this collaboration. These capabilities are something many customers have asked for." said Gilbert Verghese, CEO of Eagletron.

The joint venture includes combining creative as well as promotional efforts. Both Eagletron and Compex have agreed to dedicate a full page to the partnership on each company’s website, www.cpx.com and www.eagletron.com.
