IDIS has launched a new HD encoder with eight channels, the DP-DE2108. With this latest device from IDIS, a wide range of analogue camera signals can be digitized to provide excellent HD image quality, allowing end users to support legacy cameras, mix and match analogue and IP solutions, or manage phased upgrades to full network surveillance systems.
When using an HD-TVI signal, the DP-DE2108 integrates HD analogue, SD analogue, and HD-TVI cameras into a DirectIP® network solution, delivering high-performance video up to 5MP. The encoder features four audio inputs, quadruple streaming, and OSC control over coaxial cables.
The intelligent features offered by the DP-DE2108 provide many of the benefits of IP without the cost of a complete network conversion. It enables a unified approach to managing analogue or IP cameras from either the license-free IDIS Center VMS or IDIS Solution Suite (ISS), with a modular choice of enterprise-level services.
James Min, Managing Director, IDIS Europe, notes, “The release of the DP-DE2108 reflects IDIS’s continued focus on real-world customer needs. Despite the market shift from analogue to network surveillance, we continue to see a steady demand for analogue. Customers want to retain coaxial cabling, particularly in locations like historic buildings, where there is a need to avoid the cost and disruption of civil works.”
In addition, this new 8-channel encoder will be a valuable option for phased migration programs, ensuring continued operation and uninterrupted surveillance with exceptional HD image quality as system upgrade projects are rolled-out.
