The Vicon KTX-4 accepts up to four analog CCTV cameras for converting their analog video signals into digital so that they can be recognized by ViconNet DVRs and workstations. Once converted, these analog cameras are treated exactly like true IP cameras and can be accessed for viewing, recording and even PTZ control over the network. Furthermore, as with true IP cameras, up to 16 converted analog cameras can be accessed simultaneously for viewing and control by a single workstation or DVR.
- ViconNet MPEG-4 Compression
- Network users can choose between three compression modes; normal MPEG-4, MJPEG and a proprietary ViconNet MPEG-4 compression method. This gives a user better control over data management and distribution while taking into account such crucial factors as available network bandwidths and storage resources.
- 120 FPS (30 FPS Per Channel)
- By capturing full 30 FPS for each camera input, video is displayed with the clarity and fluidity of movement required in sensitive CCTV applications.
- 2 Audio Inputs
- Audio from up to two analog cameras can be captured along with their video signals for transmission over the network. The ability to see as well as hear an occurrence can be an important feature in many applications.
- PoE (Power over Ethernet)
- PoE has the ability to send power to the encoder over the same Ethernet cable used to transmit data. By using a single cable to transmit both data and power, PoE eliminates the need to have an AC outlet close by, greatly simplifying the camera installation process. Furthermore, when used with an UPC (Uninterruptible Power Supply) unit, PoE can keep the cameras operating during a localized power failure.
