Pelco NET5508US Overview

The NET5500 Series NET5508US 8-Channel H.264 Based Network Video Encoder from Pelco is a high performance, single-channel to multi-channel video encoder that integrates analog cameras and positioning systems into an IP video surveillance system. The NET5508US encoder delivers clear images while drastically reducing the network bandwidth and storage requirements for IP video surveillance applications.

The NET5508US Encoder is capable of compressing a single video input into two streams, each up to D1 (720 x 480 for NTSC and 720 x 576 for PAL) and 30/25 ips. With individually configurable streams, each channel of the encoder can be configured to meet differing bandwidth, resolution, and frame rate requirements.

The High profile H.264 compression option delivers remarkable picture quality at a low bandwidth. While H.264 compression provides significant bit rate savings over JPEG compression schemes, High profile H.264 enables further reduction of bit rate, also improving picture quality under certain scene conditions. The NET5508US Encoder provides Baseline, Main, and High profile H.264 compression to optimize the cost of deploying IP video surveillance while also improving image quality. The encoder includes analytics capabilities such as Motion and Sabotage detection.
