I don't know about embedded surveillance being the wave of the future some people think it is. Surveillance companies like IRIS have been embedding CCTV monitoring capabilities in their computers for awhile with mixed results. The monitor ends up being too tiny, plus with everything now networked, security professionals would rather use their laptops than cozy up to a box like this. Honestly to me this seems like a media product trying to find a second life in the already-crowded surveillance market. Touch screens are a cool feature on cell phones, but I don't think it's enough to make a product work for the security industry.
