• Support for up to 56 video channels (4 per blade)
  • Simultaneous H.264 and MPEG-4 video streaming
  • Up to 12 simultaneous streams per blade
  • Optional embedded analytics

Consolidate and convert video from your analog surveillance cameras onto a standard IP network using the Edge 4 Blade Encoder. This standalone device allows you to replace lengthy coaxial cable runs with a single network connection – saving your organization as much as 30% in labor and cabling costs.

Investment Protection

Ideal for centralized video networking in high-density analog camera environments, the rack-mount encoder supports from 4 to as many as 56 channels of video. It allows you to extend support for existing analog camera investments and transition cost-effectively to IP video capabilities.

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.
