In theory this should work fine, as long as the decoders work with whatever stream format the cameras are using.
In reality, I would test this with one sample unit before just ordering a bunch of equipment and running into the job.
We have used different encoders before and had no problems as the VMS supported both different encoders .
Different cameras , Manufactureers same per line , different per camera .
We have even used others products co mingled on Baluns , they worked fine for the most part , analog cameras .
as long as they are not proprietary to the software, you should not have a problem .
if I understand correctly, you want to decode and then re-encode the video using different set of encoders. If this is the case, there shouldn't be an issue to do that, but I would consider the video quality as it will be degraded as you decode and re-encode the video, you might see some artifacts or black margins in the image - please provide more information
Dear undisclosed manufacturer,
Yes, I am planning to use different brand encoder and decoders to stream the video. I set the resolutions to 4 CIF @ 30 IPS @ H.264 compression. We have existing analogue cameras on site. I am trying to stream the video and encode it and decode it on a local monitor using VGA. Any thoughts please. My only concern is interoperability with two different brands.
