Teleste MPH241 - high performance IP HD/SD video encoder

Product Profile

Standardised HD technology enables today cameras to provide higher resolution of video images than conventional SD CCTV – and transmitting HD video over IP is a key consideration in specific video surveillance applications. However, considering reliability, maintenance and security of typical IP cameras, it may not always be wise to extend your network to connect cameras “on the pole”. Why not use HD-SDI signalling for the first leg of your network and perform IP encoding in a safe location? 

Teleste MPH241 is a compact, temperature-hardened and field-proven encoder that provides HD-SDI video input for further H.264 processing and networking. The encoder supports also standard SD video. MPH241 belongs to the Teleste MPH series that provides encoders for versatile network video encoding needs in both standalone and rack installations, and it meets the compliance requirements of EN50121 Railway standard as well as NEMA TS2 standard that is widely used for ITS applications.

The MPH241 encoder delivers up to four independent video streams at full frame rate and full SD resolution using H.264, MPEG-4, MJPEG or MPEG-2, or any combination of these. Each of the individual streams can be optimised for separate purposes such as live viewing, recording, web applications and PDA. The MPH241 also ensures safe and seamless migration from any legacy hybrid video network towards fully H.264 based networks. For HD operations, the composite video input can be configured to a digital HD-SDI interface with full 1080p resolution. A synchronised audio stream can be attached to the video, and the video streams can be decoded by standards compliant media players and video decoder devices.

The MPH241 offers excellent functionality that is not restricted to video operations. The encoder provides direct copper cable and fibre connectivity to Fast/Gigabit Ethernet networks through a built-in 4-port Ethernet switch. With SFP plug-in optics the encoder is suitable for a wide range of network topologies. The built-in EIA RS data channels provide multi-vendor PTZ camera control through Ethernet network. The encoder also includes alarm input and output that can be used to trigger events and control external devices.

In addition to Command Line Interface (CLI) and comprehensive Web user interface, the MPH241 supports ONVIF specification and provides straightforward interoperability with any ONVIF compliant management system. Integration to third party systems can also be achieved using RTSP, SAP or SNMP. The MPH241 also offers low cost of ownership that is guaranteed by low power consumption and mechanical design that is made to guarantee high performance in harsh environments. DIN rail mounting is available through a set of accessories, and alternative powering methods support both local DC feed (10.5… 28 V) or PoE 802.3at.
