Add analog cameras to IP-surveillance system with ONVIF-compliant encoders

Samsung says its SPE encoder line is installer-friendly and provides operational as well as cost benefits.

The new SPE-400 (4-channel) and SPE-1600R (16-channel rack-mounted) encoders from Samsung facilitate a cost-effective means of adding analog cameras to an Internet Protocol (IP)-based surveillance system, the manufacturer says. The two new encoders comply with ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) specifications and along with the existing SPE-100 (single-channel) encoder, allow images captured by analog cameras to be transmitted across an IP network.

John Fisk, European IP product manager for Samsung Techwin Europe Ltd. says each product in the encoder series is installer-friendly, adding that the encoders have been designed to effect operational and cost savings.

If an alarm is activated, the encoders can signal a camera to move to a preset position. Through the SPE-100 and SPE-400, alarm-related images can be captured on an SD card.
