Connect Analog Surveillance Data to Your Network
Cisco Video Surveillance IP Gateway video encoders and decoders use a high-quality 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:
- The video encoder connects to an analog video camera and simultaneously encodes two MPEG-4 video streams at different resolutions and frame rates, allowing for high-quality live viewing while recording at lower frame and bit rates for longer storage time
- The video decoder can be installed where there is a need for live viewing or playback of recorded video on an analog closed-circuit television (CCTV) monitor
Because the gateways fully integrate CCTV keyboards for control of networked video surveillance, almost all camera control functions are accessible. So there is no need to retrain operators on new CCTV keyboard controls, which makes it easier to change to a digital system.
