Vicon's New 16-Channel H.264 Encoder Offers Affordable Options for Hybrid VMS System Design

Hauppauge, NY: (June 12, 2013) - Vicon Industries Inc., a leading designer and producer of network video management systems, introduces the H264-16CH-ENCDR, a high-performance, 16-channel H.264 encoder that allows for the use of analog cameras side-by-side with IP models within a VMS network. The encoder’s seamless integration with ViconNet VMS provides full support of all ViconNet features and controls, including PTZ control, museum search, dynamic load balancing, automatic detection and alarm configuration and reporting. All this is delivered at a very competitive price-per-channel.

The H264-16CH-ENCDR transmits up to 480 fps at 4 CIF or D1 resolution (720 x 480). It supports dual streaming, provides dual network ports for redundancy and auto-senses NTSC and PAL input. Power can be provided by PoE, high-power PoE or 24 VAC.

“The ability to see, control and store video from analog cameras within an IP environment as if they were network cameras, and at such a reasonable price, will be extremely desirable to customers looking to preserve their investment in existing cameras while seeking a migration path to a network solution,” explained Guy Arazi, Director of Product Management.
