Modular and Expandable, Hot Swappable Video Modules, 16 Video Input/Output Channels
VIP X1600 XF is a modular, high-performance CCTV video encoder system. Each VIP X1600 XF is a 4 x 4 unit that accommodates up to four hot-swappable modules, allowing modules to be added or exchanged at any time without interrupting transmission to the other modules channels.
The VIP-X1600-XFB base system provides two 1 Gbps Ethernet ports on the front and an additional 1 Gbps Ethernet port on the rear. This provides a greater choice of network connectivity and allows for easier inside-rack cabling like, for example, direct connection to an iSCSI storage array.
This base system also features a 1 Gbps small form-factor pluggable (SFP) slot on the front, for example, for an optical transceiver to enable direct fiber connection to a remote network. For applications not benefiting from these advanced features the VIP-X1600-B base system is available that just provides two 1 Gbps Ethernet ports, one on the front and one on the rear.
The VIP X1600 XF H.264 main profile encoder modules (VIP-X1600-XFM4A/XFM4B) deliver real-time H.264 compressed video over IP, providing two independent streams per camera with full frame rate at best quality for different purposes, like one stream for live viewing with lowest delay while the second stream is optimized for requiring only little recording space.
