4K HD Cameras and Video Encoders for Drones and Robotics

Low-Power Dual Camera Encoders for UAVs

The low-SWaP systems support two visible and/or thermal cameras as well as Power over Ethernet By Mike Ball / 29 Sep 2022

Dual camera encoder for UAVsZ3 Technology has released two new compact low-power dual camera encoder systems that can handle two visible and/or thermal cameras, making them ideal for high-performance and SWaP-constrained UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) applications such as inspection and surveillance.

The FV2K-13A and the FV4K-13A support Power over Ethernet (PoE) for multi-channel H.265/H.264 video streaming of a single or dual camera system. The versatile user interface allows configuration for simultaneous streaming and recording of video.

The encoders are controlled via an easy-to-use web GUI, Serial/SSH/ API or ONVIF. Each system includes a range of functionalities such as the ability to pass camera control commands over IP, overlay timestamp and inject metadata in the video stream, as well as Pelco-D for PTZ positioning. Low-profile options are also available with the FV2K-15A and the FV4K-15A variants. Both video encoding solutions are NDAA-compliant and ONVIF Profile S and T compliant.

Aaron Caldwell, CEO of Z3 Technology, stated: “We are excited to make these new 4K and HD camera encoder systems available to our customers. The functionality that is included in their lightweight, compact designs is unlike anything we have seen on the market,” said . “These solutions provide a platform for our customers to integrate into their application, customize based on their video needs, and are backed with Z3’s reputation for reliable, high-quality video solutions.”
