Vicon Industries Inc., a leading designer and producer of network video management systems, introduces two new H.264 network encoders, a 4-channel and 16-channel model, that convert analogue camera inputs (both NTSC/EIA and PAL/CCIR) into streamed IP video data. Advanced features such as museum search, that permits users to conduct quick analysis of recorded events, as well as dynamic load balancing and automatic detection, are provided when the device is used as part of a ViconNet Video Management System (VMS).
The encoder devices are easy to install and configure within ViconNet using an exclusive setup utility that enables quick assignment of an IP address. Full PTZ control, alarm reporting, picture quality configuration, external sensors, macros and alarm configurations are supported.
"The new H.264 encoder are a perfect solution for hybrid systems, allowing users to benefit from the many advanced features of ViconNet 6 while maintaining use of their analogue cameras " said Guy Arazi, Vicon's Digital Products Manager.
Units will begin shipping in Fall 2011.
