The Axis Communications Q7414 4-Channel Video Encoder Blade allows you to take full advantage of the latest in digital CCTV technology while keeping your existing analog equipment. The Q7414 encoder is a 4-port video encoder blade for use with the Axis Q7900 Rack. With its 14 blade capacity, the Axis 07900 Rack supports a total of 56 analog cameras, making it an essential tool for CCTV facilities that need to interface a large number of analog cameras within a network. Its 4 audio-channels offer superb quality output in AAC format, making this Q7414 blade ideal for large installations requiring 2-way audio.

Each camera channel can output multiple streams of video at 30 fps in resolutions up to 720 x 480 (NTSC) and 720 x 576 (PAL) over the network
Different quality levels and frame rates can be set for each of the video streams as per the devices or network requirements

PTZ & Alarm Connections

Besides viewing cameras over the network, the Axis Rack also adds the PTZ function to your analog cameras
Each camera is provided with motion detection, active tampering alarm, and audio detection functions
The encoder's external inputs and outputs can be connected to devices such as sensors and relays, enabling the system to react to alarms and activate lights or open/close doors

PTZ Camera Support

Software drivers for more than 25 different analog cameras means that the blade will support the PTZ functions of most cameras including those manufactured by American Dynamics, Bosch, Canon, Panasonic, Pelco, Philips, Samsung, Sensormatic, and Sony
100 presets/camera, guard tour, and PTZ control queue
