The Sam3 products integrate analogue cameras into security systems by means of an Ethernet network. In applications where an Ethernet network already exists, this is a significant cost-saver as it does away with the requirement for cabling. With the Power over Ethernet option there is also no need for external power feeds to the encoders.

Conveniently, there is no hardware installation on the NVR (Network Video Recorder) – each SAM-3 encodes an analogue camera feed, converting it to a high quality digital format, which is transmitted as a digital feed to the DVR/NVR.

The encoders integrate seamlessly into the NVR user interface so that each appears as simply another camera on the site.
With “IP-based” cameras, it is possible to implement (VVMS) Virtual Video Matrix Switchers. VVMS is an IP-based video matrix switch that enables the operator to quickly display any site camera on any monitor on a video wall.

The compression ratio and resolution can be scaled independently for each encoder, providing optimum image quality under all conditions. This also enables flexible customisation of encoders to optimise the network bandwidth.

The SAM-3 uses advanced dual streaming technology making it possible to multicast the video feed to multiple users without compromising the network bandwidth.
