New American Dynamics™ VideoEdge™ IP Encoder combines best-in-class resolution with leading compression technology

Product Profile

American Dynamics VideoEdge IP Encoder

The 4-channel VideoEdge IP Encoder connects analogue cameras and IP video networks.  The encoder converts analogue video from cameras and domes into native IP signals.

The VideoEdge IP Encoder offers best-in-class high frame rates, high resolution and can transmit IP video streams to multiple clients over a standard Ethernet network or display them as live video on a network-connected Web browser.  The VideoEdge IP Encoder is compatible with Intellex IP and utilizes American Dynamics' Active Content Compression (ACC) technology, which compresses video up to nine times more efficiently than products using MPEG-4 and MJPEG compression.

The encoder is best for customers who require a highly reliable video management system with the flexibility, scalability, and improved performance of IP.  The encoder is remotely accessible, network ready, and easy to integrate with other equipment.
