VIP 1000 Single Channel MPEG-2/4 Transmitter or Receiver

The VIP 1000 features DVD quality fully interlaced MPEG-2 video and S-VHS quality MPEG-4 video at up to 30 fps simultaneously over IP networks. Supporting PAL or NTSC sources and full-duplex audio it is available as transmitter or receiver..

The video signal can be received and displayed with a standard browser or decoder software VIDOS. Using the receiver you can integrate box-to-box connections to your system to show video from any MPEG transmitter on analogue monitors.

The VIP 1000 provides the complete range of proven features, including Dual Encoding for best use of bandwidth, PTZ control and a FastEthernet port. A USB interface affords connection over wireless LAN, DSL, ISDN or PSTN. Alternatively it offers local disk or flash memory recording and thereby support of fault tolerant network video recording with VIDOS-NVR.

Ultra-compact in size the VIP 1000 is perfect for any application that depends on space-saving solutions.

VIP 1000 Single channel MPEG-2/4 Transmitter or Receiver
The new VIP 1000 video codec combines professional alarm features with MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 broadcast quality pictures.

MPEG-2 produces extremely sharp pictures with superb detail. It thus brings security operations the practical benefit of better recognition of people, objects or even car number plates from a long way away. And using the VIP 1000's low delay mode, this outstanding quality is achieved with real time transmission.

A VIP 1000 can use a constant or a variable bit rate for transmission and it is compatible with both PAL or NTSC video sources. Its multicast feature facilitates efficient observation and analysis by allowing several clients to call up identical pictures at the same time.
