With an IP video encoder/decoder, analog video signals are converted into digital video over your existing IP network. Take any analog camera and make it a part of your security system with the ability to view it over your security’s network. Essentially, you can work with the equipment you currently have, even if you don’t have IP cameras. With these devices, you will also have the ability to view your system remotely. Additionally, you can control the pan, tilt, and zoom functions of the camera by hooking it up to an IP video encoder/decoder.
