VideoJet 8008 8 channel MPEG-4 DVR & Transmitter

The VideoJet 8008 delivers the highest quality real-time video available today. Its advanced hardware engine produces 30 images per second of pure MPEG-4 video in DVD-like quality. This power is further multiplied by incorporating multiple encoders within the single unit, delivering eight full-motion video channels. Each channel generates non-multiplexed video at 30 IPS.

The video can be viewed on a standard PC using VIDOS video management software or a web browser. Alternatively, when used in conjunction with a high-performance MPEG-4 hardware decoder (such as the VIP XD), you can create point-to-point hybrid analogue/digital solutions. This technology uses the highest quality analogue cameras and analogue CCTV monitors, but with a pure IP solution in-between.

The VideoJet 8008 8-channel MPEG-4 encoder features three key recording modes. The simplest mode is continuous. The alarm-sensitive mode also runs continuously, but increased the frame rate on alarm. A pre-alarm option preserves a short segment of video just prior to the alarm, at a flexible frame rate.

The VideoJet 8008's 160, 250, 500, 600, 800 or 1,000GB internal hard disk records weeks at a time locally, or for more extended recording periods it can use the VIDOS-NVR network video recorder. Such an NVR server has one or more RAID5 disk arrays attached for maximum fault tolerance and a storage capacity of over 100TB.

The VideoJet 8008 with its Dual Streaming technology can encode the video inout signal in two different ways in parallel. For example in 4CIF resolution with 1 IPS for recording and in CIF with 25 IPS for live viewing at a workshop with software decoder or a hardware monitor. Depending on the application, other combinations are also possible.

The VideoJet 8008 is powerful enough to simultaneously allow MPEG-4 live viewing, recording and playback or backup. With eight channels in a rack-mountable 1HU form factor it offers the highest port density at this quality of video. Combined with a complete set of security and distributed system management features it is the market's most powerful, highest quality MPEG-4 encoder and recorder.

VideoJet 8008 Multi-channel DVR & Transmitter
The VideoJet 8008 professional network video server is designed for uncompromised quality in video surveillance and monitoring over IP networks, featuring 8 non-multiplexed data streams with both, DVD- and S-VHS-quality.

It can be used as a drop-in 1HU-high rack-mount unit replacement for analogue multiplexers, where multiple cameras are wired at the same location

With its built-in hard-disks and front-panel controls the VideoJet 8008 upgrades jerky, limited DVRs to smooth, 25/30 pictures/sec DVD quality video

The configuration and management of the VideoJet 8008 is comfortable by using the Web browser interface, manual operating elements or with VIDOS, our management and recording software.
