IDIS, an established surveillance leader, has extended its surveillance line up to include four and eight channel video encoders allowing customers to integrate DirectIP with their existing analogue systems.
The video encoders enable customers to add IP cameras, Network Video Recorders (NVRs), video management software as well as analogue cameras to expand and update their surveillance capability, and benefit from all the power and flexibility of DirectIP High-Definition (HD) and network surveillance.
The units support four audio inputs and have the ability to connect to existing PTZ cameras using 87x RS485 telemetry protocols. Featuring highly efficient H.264 video compression, the encoders also drastically reduce bandwidth and storage requirements without compromising image quality.
Martin Cowley, Channel Manager, noted, “The encoders are proving to be an effective migration path from analogue to network surveillance, particularly for customers looking for an affordable and phased approach. It allows customer to easily add HD and IP cameras exactly where they are needed most. The units allow customers to operate their entire surveillance system through DirectIP delivering immediate benefits in terms of ease of operation and plug-and-play simplicity.”
Packaged as an end-to-end solution, comprising a range of cameras, monitors, network video recorders (NVR) and comprehensive video management software, DirectIP solutions deliver unrivalled plug-and-play simplicity, combined with highest-quality performance and reliability.
