5 New Video Encoders
Axis Communications introduced AXIS M70 and AXIS P72 Video Encoder Series with the market’s most comprehensive set of network video surveillance capabilities, the company said. These new products enable cost-effective migration from analog CCTV to a powerful IP-based video surveillance system. The new Axis encoders offer one of the most cost-efficient solutions on the market, with $125 per channel for H.264 video encoding at 15 fps, and $155 to $175 per channel for H.264 video and audio at full frame rate (30 fps), both in full D1 resolution (720 x 480). This makes AXIS M70 and AXIS P72 Series ideal for small and medium-sized locations, such as retail outlets, gas stations, convenience stores and small offices. The encoders range from 4- to 16-channel models. “With today’s release of AXIS M70 and P72 Series, we now offer a range of 16 different video encoders to help guide surveillance end-users into the digital age while protecting their existing analog investment. Encoders offer a great migration strategy, especially in segments like retail where there is a long-standing history of using analog surveillance,” said Fredrik Nilsson of Axis Communications Inc.
