AXIS P7224 Video Encoder Blade is a cost-effective four-channel video encoder blade with great video performance and excellent audio quality. It can simplify migration to network video without upgrading existing camera systems. When AXIS P7224 blades are used with AXIS Q7900 Rack, up to 56 analog cameras can be supported in one 4U, 19-inch rack. The blade can also be used with the AXIS 291 1U Video Server Rack.
AXIS P7224 supports all types of analog cameras including PTZ (pan/tilt/zoom) and PTZ domes. The video encoder features both RS-422 and RS-485 for controlling analog PTZ cameras. Configurable inputs/outputs can be connected to external relays and sensors for activating lights, locking/unlocking doors etc.
AXIS P7224 is perfect for large analog video installations, especially where an IP network infrastructure is already in place. It is powered from the rack, which simplifies installation.
AXIS P7224 can deliver two simultaneous video streams, one in H.264 and another in Motion JPEG, at full frame rate in all resolutions up to D1 (720x480 in NTSC, 720x576 in PAL). The H.264 video compression format drastically reduces bandwidth and storage requirements without compromising image quality. Motion JPEG is supported for increased flexibility.
