March Networks Video Sphere Blade Encoder
The Edge encoders work in concert with VideoSphere Video Management System (VMS) software running on industry-standard servers to archive all video, audio and data evidence. The architecture enables easy deployment of advanced video analytics and other industry specific  business intelligence applications.
VideoSphere encoders use H.264 or MPEG4 compression to consolidate and convert video from analog cameras onto a standard IP network. Organizations with large facilities can deploy VideoSphere Edge encoders to leverage cost-effective analog technology, and to replace lengthy coaxial cable runs with a single network connection, saving an organization as much as 30% in labor and cabling costs. The VideoSphere Edge 4 Blade Encoder supports a fully scalable, centralized solution for IP video networking in high-density analog camera environments utilizing any existing cable infrastructure.
