Avigilon has announced the introduction of the Avigilon H.264 Analogue Video Encoder which offers customers the most cost-effective way to realize the benefits of HD surveillance while making use of existing investments in legacy surveillance systems.
"Avigilon offers a complete and open surveillance solution designed specifically for high definition performance," said Keith Marett, director of marketing and communications at Avigilon. "The Avigilon H.264 Analogue Video Encoder is the latest addition to our overall solution that enables organizations to cost-effectively make use of their existing analogue cameras as they transition over to HD surveillance for greater investigative success and enhanced overall security."
Making use of H.264 compression technologies, the new encoder minimizes bandwidth and storage requirements while capturing high quality surveillance footage for greater coverage and enhanced overall protection. ONVIF compliance provides interoperability in a wide range of network video management software platforms, including Avigilon Control Center.
A 4-port analogue video encoder, the Avigilon product is designed to integrate legacy analogue cameras into an HD IP surveillance system. Supporting NTSC and PAL video standards, the encoder includes an RS-485 interface for PTZ support, an external I/O interface for connecting alarms and relays, and four audio input and output jacks for enhanced communication. Encoding in full resolution up to 30 images per second per analogue camera for improved image quality, the Avigilon H.264 Analogue Video Encoder seamlessly integrates with Avigilon Control Center NVMS and High Definition NVRs using standard network equipment to create a network-based surveillance solution with unmatched performance, ease of use, and ease of installation.
