• Standalone form factors, with models supporting from 1 to 4 channels of video
  • Simultaneous H.264 and MPEG-4 video streaming
  • Shadow Archiving and NAS storage (Edge 1 MicroEncoder)
  • Optional embedded analytics (Edge 1 Encoder/Decoder, Edge 4 Encoder)

Consolidate and convert video from your analog surveillance cameras onto a standard IP network using our 1 to 4 channel Edge Encoders. These standalone devices allow you to replace lengthy coaxial cable runs with a single network connection – saving your organization as much as 30% in labor and cabling costs.

Command Compatible

The Edge encoders work in concert with our Command video management system software running on industry-standard servers or our hybrid video recording solutions to archive all video, audio and data evidence. They also support optional embedded video analytics for advanced security, monitoring and business intelligence.
