High-performance, single-channel solution

AXIS Q7401 Video Encoder is a high-performance, single-channel solution that integrates an analogue camera into an IP-based video surveillance system.  With outstanding video processing capabilities, AXIS Q7401 delivers superb video quality and significant savings in bandwidth and storage.

Reduced bandwidth and storage needs

AXIS Q7401 offers the highly efficient H.264 video compression, which drastically reduces bandwidth and storage requirements without compromising image quality.  Motion JPEG is also supported for increased flexibility.

Full frame rate in all resolutions

AXIS Q7401 can deliver multiple, individually configurable video streams simultaneously at full frame rate in all resolutions up to D1 (720x480 in NTSC, 720x576 in PAL).  This means that several video streams can be configured with different compression formats, resolutions and frame rates for different needs.

Wide range of analogue PTZ cameras supported

All Axis video encoders connect to analogue pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) cameras to allow for easy operation of these PTZ cameras across the IP network.  Axis' open policy ensures simple and fast integration with most analogue PTZ cameras on the market by including software drivers for more than 25 different analogue cameras, including products from American Dynamics, Bosch, Canon, Panasonic, Pelco, Philips, Samsung, Sensormatic and Sony.

Easy installation

Support for Power over Ethernet (IEEE802.3af) enables the unit, as well as the analogue camera that is connected to it, to receive power through the same cable as for data transmission.  This makes for easy installation since no power outlet is needed.
