VN-DECODER-2 for live remote monitoring of ViconNet video

Product Profile

The VN-DECODER-2, a 2-channel video decoder designed for use in conjunction with Vicon's Virtual Matrix Display Controller, provides added flexibility for ViconNet system topology. The device provides a cost-effective means to support remote or add-on viewing stations that require only live video display, such as the view of building entrances from a reception desk. When used at an edge location, such as a public view monitor or a guard shack, the video can be controlled and driven by a programmable logic controller (PLC) and IP keypad, without the need for a traditional keyboard, mouse and monitor.

  • Part of a scalable, matrix control solution for small and large installations
  • Decodes digital IP data into analogue for display on any monitor
  • Compact size fits easily in remote display areas with limited space
  • Connect up to 2 monitors to each unit; add more units for multiple monitor solutions
  • Supports 1080p high-definition, 16X9 viewing; H.264 compression
  • Control can be shared by multiple operators
  • External power supply keeps the unit cool and running quietly
