Extech Instruments, makers of handheld test, measurement and inspection tools, announces the BRD10 Wireless USB Video Receiver. The BRD10 enables Extech borescope video content to stream wirelessly to a PC or laptop. The compact video receiver also transforms an Extech borescope into an internet camera, or webcam, allowing customers, for the first time ever, to transmit real-time inspection video over the web. The BRD10 works with all major web-based video calling and streaming services such as Skype and UStream. No additional A/V or VOIP cables or devices are required.

Users can use the BRD10 to share a real-time inspection with clients, supervisors, prospects, trainees, or students who are located at one or several remote sites. Extech borescopes can now be used for remote inspections, live web-based training, product or service webinars, and more. The BRD10 is compatible with all popular web-based video calling services like Skype, Cisco WebEx, Microsoft Office Live Meeting, as well as videostreaming services like DaCast, TwitchTV, VOKLE, TinyChat, and uStream.

The BRD10 transforms Extech’s line of wireless video borescope inspection cameras into powerful communication and education tools. PC video recording and web connectivity are ideal for inspections and training in multi-site manufacturing plants, virtual technical training, continuing education programs, HVAC and refrigeration, electrical, automotive, energy auditing, pest control, virtual/online universities, and more. With the boundless connectivity offered by the new BRD10 video receiver, Extech video borescopes now truly offer a limitless number of uses.

The compact USB receiver weighs less than an ounce (21g, 0.7 oz) and is about the size of a USB memory stick. BRD10 software allows users to control video parameters like brightness, contrast, hue, saturation, frame rate, and output size (megapixels), and is compatible with Windows® XP, Vista and 7. Along with a range of extension cable probes and handsets, the BRD10 wireless USB receiver expands the versatility of Extech’s popular BR200/BR250 video borescopes and HDV600 videoscope line.
