Z3 Technology Dual Camera Encoder

Z3 Technology, a provider of video encoding systems, has announced the release of a video encoder system designed to support two IP video cameras in full HD video resolutions. Designed for visible and IR surveillance and UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) platforms, the FV2K-DCK-10 offers real-time streaming with compression and low bandwidth technology.

“The versatile design of the FV2K-DCK-10 allows users to incorporate two cameras while only utilizing one video encoder system. This provides a substantial cost and space savings compared to using two separate encoders when designing and updating security systems,” said Aaron Caldwell, CEO of Z3 Technology.

The FV2K-DCK-10 supports two visible and/or infrared cameras up to 1080p60 each, with the ability to select H.265 or H.264 for each camera independently. The flexible design allows for symmetrical or asymmetrical small form factor configurations for PTZ designs or bidirectional fixed camera solutions. The encoder can simultaneously stream and record in H.265 and H.264 from one full HD visible camera and one IR camera in SD resolutions.

Camera interface options include LVDS, NTSC/PAL, Cameralink, parallel CMOS, BT656 and BT1120. In addition, on-board interfaces include RS-485, RS-232, Ethernet (PoE enabled), HDMI output and recording to a USB or Micro-SD card storage. The video encoder provides remote serial control protocol communications support for most cameras including Sony VISCA, DRS, FLIR and others over the IP network.
