ComNet Europe is introducing a video encoder/decoder designed for those applications where temperature extremes, vibration, shock, voltage transients, and humidity with condensation are present. The new CNVETX1 video encoder/decoder is industrially hardened for use in the most extreme operating environments.
The CNVETX1 is a single channel video encoder or decoder. It accepts an incoming baseband video signal, with duplex audio, and serial data for camera PTZ control, encodes it to H.264, MPEG-4, MPEG-2, or MJPEG video compression standards, and inserts it onto an Ethernet network. The CNVETX1 is user-configurable as an encoder or decoder, or the decoding may be accomplished with the decoding software supplied. It is operable as a PoE (IEEE 802.3aF) powered device or from any source of +12 VDC, and also contains ComNet IVS software for simultaneous video streaming and onboard content management.
There was a gap in the generally available IP video encoding product offerings, and finding an encoder that would operate reliably in difficult industrial environments was nearly impossible,” said Steve Clarke, ComNet Europe managing director.
“The solution was simple; we developed our own. The CNVETX1 also provides an analogue video-to-IP encoding and decoding solution for use with our new NetWave wireless transmission products,” Clarke added.
