Vicon Industries, a designer and producer of security surveillance solutions, introduces a 16-channel H.264 video encoder model that converts analogue camera inputs into streamed IP video data. The encoder incorporates high-quality H.264 video and audio encoding and compression technology and is specifically designed to support 960H, AHD and TVI analogue cameras.

Perfect solution for hybrid systems

The ENC-H264-16 encoder is the perfect solution for hybrid systems, as it simplifies the migration to network video without upgrading existing analogue camera systems. The encoder network-enables existing analogue cameras and creates an IP-based system, allowing integration with Vicon’s Valerus VMS. Customers benefit from leveraging the latest VMS technology while maintaining their legacy investments.

This cost-effective, 16-channel video encoder supports all types of analogue cameras, including PTZ domes with full control over RS485. The H.264 video compression format drastically reduces bandwidth and storage requirements without compromising image quality.

Advanced features

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 Valerus Video Management System (VMS). The encoder device is easy to install and configure within Valerus by using an exclusive setup utility that enables quick assignment of an IP address.

By upgrading to an IP-based system with Vicon’s video encoder, customers gain increased flexibility in camera management while utilising existing cameras and cabling. IP-based system allows cameras to be added one at a time, which ensures customers can future-proof their investment and continue to add the latest security technology without overhauling its infrastructure.

“The new H.264 encoder is a perfect solution for hybrid systems, allowing users to benefit from the many advanced features of Valerus while maintaining use of their analogue cameras” said Guy Arazi, Vicon’s Director of Product Management.
