  • Power over Ethernet (PoE)
  • Onboard SDHC memory
  • Each blade supports the full range of VideoSphere analytics

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 analogue cameras onto a standard IP network. Organizations with large facilities can deploy VideoSphere Edge encoders to leverage cost-effective analogue technology, and to replace lengthy coaxial cable runs with a single network connection, saving an organization as much as 30% in labour and cabling costs. The VideoSphere Edge 4 Blade Encoder supports a fully scalable, centralized solution for IP video networking in high-density analogue camera environments utilizing any existing cable infrastructure.
