LAS VEGAS, USA (AVING Special Report on 'ISC West 2008') -- <Visual News> Axis today announced three new video encoder products ‘Q7401 Video Encoder’, ‘Q7406 Video Encoder Blade’ and ‘Q7900 Rack’ during 2008 ISC West, which support the latest and highly efficient video compression format, H.264.
The products enable analog cameras to be integrated into a more efficient and powerful IP-based video surveillance system.
The new offerings are part of Axis’ new generation network video products that take full advantage of the in-house developed ARTPEC-3 chip. The new product generation incorporates the H.264 video compression standard, which allows improved image quality, simplified deployment and management of large systems and better cost-efficiency.
The three products consist of the standalone AXIS Q7401 Video Encoder for integrating one analog camera; AXIS Q7406 Video Encoder Blade, which supports six analog channels; and AXIS Q7900 Rack, which is one of the industry’s highest-density rack solutions with support for up to 84 analog cameras. The video encoders, which support all types of analog video cameras, convert analog signals into digital streams that are then sent over IP networks for viewing and recording.
Both the AXIS Q7401 Video Encoder and AXIS Q7406 Video Encoder Blade incorporate an encoder for H.264, which is also known as MPEG-4 Part 10/AVC. Without compromising image quality, Axis’ H.264 encoder can reduce bandwidth and storage requirements by more than 80 percent compared with Motion JPEG and as much as 50% more than with the MPEG-4 Part 2 standard. The products also support Motion JPEG for increased flexibility.
