Cisco offers network-centric video surveillance software and hardware that support video transmission, monitoring, recording, and management. These products protect customers' existing investments in analog equipment, while enabling them to operate as part of an IP-based network-centric deployment. Cisco® video surveillance products enable any-to-any multivendor device interoperability, allowing customers to build best-in-class video surveillance systems that optimize price, performance, and capability.

Cisco Video Surveillance IP Gateway video encoders and decoders use a high-quality H.264 and MPEG-4 video compression technology that allows video streams to be switched over the IP network at up to full D1 resolution, and up to 30 frames per second, while consuming low bandwidth. Controlled by Cisco Video Surveillance Stream Manager software, the Cisco Video Surveillance IP Gateway enables you to connect your analog surveillance equipment to a digital network:

Figure 1. IP Gateway

Cisco Video Surveillance IP Gateway encoders enable a wide range of analog video cameras, including pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) models, to be connected and controlled over an IP/Ethernet network. Similarly, Cisco Video Surveillance IP Gateway decoders allow users to use their existing investment in analog monitoring displays and keyboard/joystick controllers. The encoders and decoders run Cisco Video Surveillance Stream Manager Gateway software, which enables every Cisco Video Surveillance IP Gateway encoder and decoder to become part of a highly available, fully distributed "virtual matrix switch" that uses the power of an IP network. As a result, video surveillance deployment and operational costs can be reduced as the need for an analog matrix switch, fiber optic distribution amplifiers, and multiplexers can be eliminated in many cases-and physical security personnel can access the video in remote locations over the IP network.
Cisco Video Surveillance IP Gateway encoders and decoders are available in both standalone models (as shown in Figure 1) and as a chassis option, with up to 16 cards in a chassis.
The Cisco Video Surveillance IP Gateways offer a variety of benefits, including:

Multivendor interoperabilty. The gateways provide multivendor analog camera, keyboard, and matrix switch signaling and format (protocols) support for interoperability.

High performance. High-performance digital signal processors (DSPs) and application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) support H.264 and MPEG-4 at D1/4CIF/2CIF/CIF resolution.

Dual streaming. The gateways provide dual unicast and multicast bandwidth-efficient video streaming.

Rugged Design. The gateways can operate in extended temperature ranges to address virtually all deployment scenarios.

Audio. The gateways support Stereo audio.

Alarms. The gateways include contact inputs and outputs.

Serial ports. RS-422, RS-485, and RS-232 serial ports support motorized domes and cameras.
