Model 4480ES H.264 SD Video Encoder

The Model 4480ES H.264 SD Video Encoder is a network appliance designed to compress composite, Standard Definition (SD) video (NTSC, PAL, RS-170) for transmission over IP networks. The unit converts legacy cameras and A/V equipment to Ethernet compatible devices for any remote monitoring application including, security, surveillance, and distance learning.

Utilizing industry-standard H.264 compression, along with flexible adjustments for video resolutions, compression parameters, and network settings, the 4480ES can be configured to deliver high-quality video over any network. The unit is easily configured via the Ethernet or serial port. Audio and user-data channel multiplexing provide for single-stream transmission. The 4480ES is compatible  with off-the-shelf video players and most decoding hardware.

This compact, rugged unit is capable of operation in harsh environments. Extended temperature operation makes it ideal for military, law enforcement, distance learning, and traffic monitoring applications. An optional 1RU, multi-unit (up to 4) rack-mount adaptor is available to ease integration.
