The NET5500 Series 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 NET5500 Series encoders deliver crystal clear images while drastically reducing the network bandwidth and storage requirements for IP video surveillance applications.
Uncompromised Performance and Image Quality
The NET5500 Series encoders are 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 NET5500 Series encoder can be configured to meet differing bandwidth, resolution, and frame rate requirements.
The High profile H.264 compression option delivers outstanding picture quality at a drastically lower bandwidth. While H.264 compression provides significant bit rate savings over JPEG compression schemes, High profile H.264 enables sophisticated tools that further reduce bit rate while also improving picture quality under certain scene conditions. The NET5500 Series encoders provide Baseline, Main, and High profile H.264 compression to optimize the cost of deploying IP video surveillance while improving image quality
Powerful Intelligence at the Edge
The NET5500 Series encoders are enabled for video intelligence at the edge. The analytics capabilities included with these encoders are Motion and Sabotage detection.
Integration for Installation Flexibility
The NET5500 Series is available in a choice of 1-, 4-, 8-, or 16-channel form factors. The 1-channel in-line and 1-channel extended temperature versions are also available. The 1-channel inline model supports PoE, minimizing the amount of wiring needed. The 1-, 4-, and 8-channel rack models, as well as the 1-channel extended temperature model, also support looping video output to allow simple connections to other analog components at the edge. The 1-channel extended temperature version allows an expanded range providing optimal protection in unique applications.
Integrated audio inputs for each video input can capture audio from various sources and associate it with the video. One alarm for each video input and one relay output for the encoder (1-channel extended temperature and 1-channel rack models) allows for I/O communication with external components. The 16-channel encoder has four relays, one for every four video ports, and the 8-channel encoder has two relays.
