Video servers provide a reliable, user-friendly transition from analog to IP-based video surveillance. These video servers receive data from analogue hardware throughout the building and encodes it into IP. After the data is encrypted, it can be distributed via the Internet, so you can see it to be monitored or recorded. Video servers allow eg to select H.264, MPEG-4 or MJPEG video compression to maximize bandwidth efficiency. Also, the addition of video servers to the analog systems allow for such functions as: motion detection, pre / post alarm snapshots, DI / DO connectivity and more. With Video servers, you can easily upgrade to an IP-based digital system from your existing analog system. While analog requires expensive coax cables to be installed before a camera function, our video servers and wireless capabilities allowing access via Ethernet cable or wireless hotspots gives you the flexibility to grow at the pace that suits your needs.
