SAM-3101 H.264 I.P Video Encoder

  • 4CIF Resolution @ 25FPS
  • Optimized H.264 video compression algorithm to facilitate transmission of High Quality video over low network bandwidth
  • Power Over Ethernet (POE) Class 3 device
  • Supports PAL/NTSC
  • RS422/RS485 serial port for PTZ control
  • 12V DC Output
  • Audio input and output
  • Dual streaming – unicast and multicast
  • Fully integrated within the Cathexis Network Video Recorder, up to 64 encoders per NVR unit
  • Hardware watchdog and Built-in-tests
  • Opto-isolated inputs and relay output

The Sam3 video encoders integrates analogue cameras onto an I.P video solution by encoding the analogue feed into an Ethernet video stream. This enables you to embrace the latest network video technology while utilising your existing cameras, providing a cost-effective solution.

The encoders integrate seamlessly into the CatVision Network Video Management Software so that each encoder appears as simply another camera on the site.

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.

SAM-3104 4-channel H.264 Encoders

  • Power Over Ethernet (POE) Class 3 device
  • Optimized H.264 video compression algorithm to facilitate transmission of High Quality video over low network bandwidth
  • Built in monitoring function
  • Supports PAL/NTSC
  • Provides RS422/RS485 serial port
  • 12V DC, 5.5W, Output (if PoE is active)
  • Audio input and output. (Input will only sync with channel 1)
  • Dual streaming – unicast and multicast
  • Fully integrated within the Cathexis Network Video Recorder, up to 16 encoders (64 cameras) per NVR unit
  • Hardware watchdog and Built-in-tests
  • Opto-isolated inputs and relay output

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.

Note: The SAM3204 can be directly inserted into a 1U chassis. This must be ordered separately.
