Moxa Launches Industrial-Grade Video Encoder for Mission-Critical Applications

Brea, California, Jan. 04, 2016—Moxa’s newly launched industrial-grade video encoder, the VPort 461A, is a single channel video encoder that delivers multiple full D1 H.264 and MJPEG video stream transmissions for high performance IP video systems. Moxa offers security professionals a seamless viewing experience with an end-to-end system latency of less than 200 ms. Complying with ONVIF specifications, system integrators and end users can easily integrate the VPort 461A with any existing IP-based security system, enhancing interoperability and deployment flexibility.

Rugged Design with 5-year Warranty
The VPort 461A H.264 video encoder is designed for harsh environments and supports a broad spectrum of rugged industrial features, including wide temperature tolerance from -40 to 75°C, IP30 form factor protection against dust and rain, industrial certification (UL 60950), as well as the regular EMI/EMS standards. To demonstrate commitment to product reliability, the VPort 461A comes with an industry-leading 5-year warranty.

Four Video Streams @ 120 FPS*
The VPort 461A includes a high performance codec chip, which can support up to 4 independent video streams at 120 FPS*. The user can utilize these 4 video streams for different purposes, such as live view, video recording, video analysis, etc. Each of these 4 video streams can support up to 30 FPS at maximum D1 resolution.

High Video Performance
To increase network transmission efficiency, Moxa's innovative DynaStream™ function is designed to change the video frame rate automatically, in accordance with the current status of the network bandwidth, thus making the management of the network system easier. Additionally, an advanced bit rate flow control technology, CBR Pro™, is built in to guarantee the lowest levels of packet loss in limited bandwidth transmissions, ensuring images do not exhibit the mosaic effect.

Two Ethernet Ports for Cascading or Port Redundancy
The VPort 461A has two built-in 10/100 Mbps Ethernet ports for cascading multiple VPort 461A units. The cascade feature reduces costs since fewer switch ports, cabling and effort are required when setting up the system. Alternatively, the same Ethernet ports can be used to set-up a backup path to continue transmitting video when the primary path is disconnected. 

Local Video Recording with SD Card
An SD card slot is incorporated into the VPort 461A for local video recording via an SD card. It can support SD cards larger than 64 GB by utilizing the SDHC/SDXC* interface. Currently, local video recording can be triggered by an event or an interruption in network connectivity, which provides the added security of preserving important video images if there is a problem in network transmission or with the NVR.
