1. A self-contained wireless camera device for communication with a base station device from which compressed video signals from the base station are transmitted to the wireless camera device, the wireless camera device comprising:

  • a camera;

    video compression circuitry coupled to the camera, receiving video signals from the camera and providing selectively compressed video signals from the camera, compressed according to a selected protocol scheme;

    selection logic coupled to the video compression circuitry to control selection of a protocol scheme;

    a radio transmitter coupled to the video compression circuitry for transmission of the compressed video signals from the camera;

    control circuitry, generating control commands, the control circuitry being coupled to the radio transmitter whereby the radio transmitter transmits the control commands to the base station device for control of transmission of compressed video signals from the base station;

    a radio receiver for receipt of the compressed video signals from the base station;

    video decompression circuitry coupled to the radio receiver, receiving the compressed video signals from the base station and providing decompressed video signals; and

    a display selectively coupled to the camera and the video decompression circuitry, selectively displaying images from the camera and images represented by the decompressed video signals.
