Moxa's first video decoder unscrambles digital MJPEG/MPEG4 video streams to analog format

Taipei, Taiwan, April 23, 2008 --- Moxa Inc., one of the world's leading manufacturers of industrial device networking products, recently announced the release of its first video decoder for MJPEG and MPEG4 video formats. The VPort D351 is a 1-channel industrial video decoder that can rapidly decode network video and audio streams from Moxa's VPort series of video encoders and IP cameras, and then send the analog signals back to traditional CCTV equipment. The decoder is designed to link to standard analog CCTV devices, such as the monitors, multiplexers, and matrix switches used in many surveillance applications. Users can easily bridge existing analog video surveillance systems to a Moxa IP-based video surveillance network. In addition, a bi-directional audio function enables real time voice-over-IP communication between Moxa's industrial video encoder and decoder, and the unique transparent PTZ control allows instant control of remote PTZ controllers at the control site.

Real-time Event Surveillance

The VPort D351 can continuously monitor and track events from analog CCTV systems by switching between up to 64 different video sources at a maximum line resolution of 540 TVL. The video streams can be selected manually by web server, or automatically by scanning within a set time interval. Moreover, the VPort D351 with 2 DIs located on the top panel, can be used to create two control buttons for up and down video source selection. When an event is trigged, the video stream is instantly inserted to provide warning in real time, so that engineers can handle field site situations at once.

Transparent PTZ Control

The VPort D351 is the only video decoder on the market today that provides the ability to synchronize the control of remote PTZ cameras from the control center, without the need to install a separate driver for each PTZ camera. The Moxa VPort D351 enables users to handle remote PTZ control through a web interface, and adjust the direction and zoom setting of the camera.

  • Decode MJPEG and MPEG4 video streams to analog video signal automatically
  • Manual selection or automatic scanning from up to 64 video sources
  • 2-way (1 in/1 out) audio supported
  • Transparent PTZ control with legacy PTZ controller
