Optelecom-NKF unveils versatile MPEG-4 video server

Product Profile

Optelecom-NKF released its S-40, a new, compact MPEG-4 video server that converts analog video into IP/Ethernet MPEG-4 streams.  The S-40, attractive in price and design, brings IP video surveillance within reach of a broad range of customers.

By developing the S-40 video server, Optelecom-NKF anticipated the rising demand for professional surveillance solutions based on analog camera inputs.  Because of its simple (user-friendly) plug-and-play functionality, the S-40 is the perfect solution for migrating from existing analog systems to digital video surveillance systems.

The S-40 MPEG-4 streaming video is optimised for both low bandwidth and Hi-Res DVD-quality video applications.  It offers streaming audio, data, dry contacts, video motion detect, and pre-recording.  The compact and stylish housing is developed to ensure a wide operating temperature range.  This versatile MPEG-4 video server is well suited for almost any CCTV or camera monitoring application.

Based on the latest DSP technologies, the S-40 video server has a dual core MPEG-4 encoder, enabling it to simultaneously stream two different video formats to multiple IP destinations, e.g., one full frame-rate stream monitoring and one time-lapsed dedicated for storage on the i-NVR.

“The S-40 video server helps our customers leverage their investment in existing analog security systems while increasing flexibility and functionality in a network environment,” stated Edmund Ludwig, Optelecom-NKF’s president and CEO.  “This new MPEG-4 video server is the latest addition to our Siqura™ surveillance solution and is interoperable with our MX™ Software Suite, Operator Office™, and i-NVR product suite.”
