The crux of compression: Modernizing decoders to keep pace with encoding
Decoding is one of the most important aspects of video streaming: It's the phase through which it becomes possible to view images. Yet decoding can be a tricky part of compression since there a lot of different kinds of encoders out there that can transmit video using an array of different compression standards. Moreover, each standard allows for a wide range of profiles with flexible implementation options. As a result, decoders must be able to recognise and appropriately make a quality image out of the video information they receive from a given encoder.
The Siqura S-60 D-MC is a unique and cost-effective solution since it can automatically recognise and decompress both MPEG-4 and H.264 into excellent quality images for analogue viewing with very low latency. Through a user-friendly web interface, it is possible to configure an array of features, ranging from serial data streams, duplex audio, and I/O contacts over IP. With an optional SFP slot option, it's possible to use this decoder with fiber optic cable rather than the standard RJ-45 slot and twisted pair cable. These compact decoders are also standardised to commonly-known protocols, making their integration into third-party VMS systems, such as XProtect (Milestone), Omnicast (Genetec), and SkyPoint (Lenel), simple and headache-free.
Furthermore, the S-60 D-MC units are part of the Siqura product line, an extensive collection of video surveillance equipment offering complete solutions and reputed for quality and reliability.
