Product Overview

Cisco ® Video Surveillance Encoders are standalone devices that can be used to convert analog video sources into digital formats so they can be integrated into a networked, IP-based video surveillance system. The 4-port model (CIVS-SENC-4P) supports four analog video inputs and can be stacked, wall mounted, or rack-mounted. A power supply is included.

Figure 1. Cisco Video Surveillance 4-Port Encoder

Protocols Supported

The 4-port encoder supports two simultaneous video streams. The streams can be compressed in H.264, MPEG-4, or MJPEG formats and in various resolution, frame-rate, and bit-rate combinations.

PTZ Interface

The encoder provides an RS-485 interface to allow for connection to PTZ control units supporting the Pelco-D protocol, in order to control PTZ functions in an external camera or PTZ mount.

Digital Inputs/ Outputs

The encoder has four digital outputs and four digital inputs to connect to and from external sensors.

Web Interface

The encoders supports Internet Explorer ® 8.0 for remote setup and administration.

Video Management

The encoder connects to Cisco Video Surveillance Manager Version 6.3.2 and later.
