The Edge1 Encoders and Decoders integrate analogue video cameras into an IP network, and manage the decoding and display of all video streams. This unit enables organisations to leverage existing investments in analogue cameras and cabling and cost-effectively migrate to all-IP video networking.
The Edge 1 Encoder/Decoder works in concert with the March Networks Command 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.
The Edge 1 Encoder/Decoder uses H.264 or MPEG?4 compression to consolidate and convert video from analogue cameras onto a standard IP network. Organisations with large facilities can deploy Edge encoders to leverage cost-effective analogue technology, and to replace lengthy coaxial cable runs with a single network connection, saving labour and cabling costs.
