The Axis Communications M7016 16-Channel Video Encoder offers high-quality video and efficient integration of CCTV analog cameras into a powerful IP-based video surveillance system. It is suitable for small to medium-sized installations, within retail for example. It can simplify migration to network video without upgrading existing camera systems.
The encoder can be used as a standalone unit or mounted in a 19" rack. It offers one H.264 and one Motion JPEG stream per channel at full frame rate (30 fps) in all resolutions up to D1 (720 x 480 NTSC or 720 x 576 PAL). The H.264 video compression format drastically reduces bandwidth and storage requirements without compromising image quality. Motion JPEG is supported for increased flexibility.
This encider provides edge storage through 4 microSDHC memory card slots. It supports all types of analog cameras including PTZ (pan/tilt/zoom) and PTZ domes. The video encoder features both RS-422 and RS-485 for controlling analog PTZ cameras. It is suitable for large analog video installations, especially where an IP network infrastructure is already in place. It is powered over Ethernet using the same cable as for data transmission, which simplifies installation. A single Ethernet port serves all 16 channels. A power supply is also included in the package.
The 16-channel encoder offers intelligent video capabilities such as video motion detection and active tampering alarm. It also offers support for software such as the complimentary AXIS Camera Companion.
