Avigilon's H.264 4 Channel Encoder Examined

Author: John Honovich, Published on Jul 20, 2011

Starting in August 2011, Avigilon will start shipping a 4 channel H.264 encoder. This will be in addition to Avigilon's existing 4 channel JPEG2000 encoder. Just like the new H.264 cameras, the 4 channel H.264 encoder will support ONVIF and can integrate with 3rd party VMS systems, unlike any of the existing JPEG2000 offerings.

Key specifications of the H.264 encoder include:
