Build rugged IP surveillance systems with Moxa's new 4-channel industrial video encoders

VPort 254 4-channel Industrial Video EncoderTaipei, Taiwan, December 21, 2008—Moxa is happy to announce the availability of its new 4-channel MJPEG/MPEG4 industrial video encoders. The VPort 254 series supports 4 analog video inputs and up to 120 FPS at CIF resolution (NTSC: 352 x 240; PAL: 352 x 288) and promises high-performance video streaming for any multi-camera surveillance system. The VPort 254's industrial design includes a wide operating temperature range of -40 to 75°C, fiber-optic support, Modbus/TCP protocol, and a serial communication interface, and is tough enough to be used as part of an industrial-grade IP video surveillance system in mission-critical applications, such as the remote monitoring and control of facilities, transportation, and SCADA/HMI process automation. In addition, combining the VPort 254 with SoftNVR, Moxa's advanced 64-ch IP surveillance software, gives users a powerful video-over-IP solution with many advanced software features, including video analysis, instant alarm, and event recording.


With a rugged design tailored for industrial environments, the VPort 254 series of industrial video encoders features redundant power inputs, an IP30 metal case for durability, an optional single-mode or multi-mode fiber optic Ethernet port, a -40 to 75°C operating temperature range, and DIN-Rail mounting capability. With its built-in Modbus/TCP protocol and RS-232/422/485 communication, the VPort 254 can be seamlessly integrated with SCADA/HMI systems and other applications, such as controlling the PAN/TILT/ZOOM actions of PTZ cameras. Other advanced network management functions include RTSP video streaming for easy integration, IGMP protocols for efficient network transmission, QoS to increase the determinism of the video stream, and SNMP for easy network management.
