The video server allows not only remote monitoring but also ensures remote configuration and access to archives. On the rear panel there are 4 BNC sockets (Video IN) for CCTV cameras and next 4 BNC sockets (Video OUT - camera loopthrough). This way the image from any camera can be delivered to a recorder or monitor. There are also 4 audio inputs allowing to utilize audio functions of used cameras. The next outputs are S-Video and audio - there is possibility of connecting even regular TV set.
The two terminal strips are RS485 port and alarm input/output connector. Two DB9 connectors (RS232) - CONSOLE and COM2 ports.
In each channel (for the camera) there is possibility of setting areas of motion detection. As the result of the detection the video server can send adequate video record to ftp server or (as attachment) to demanded email address. There are available three authorization levels: administrator, operator, user.
PiXORD P4504 allows control of high-speed PTZ cameras. There are available protocols: Pelco-P, Pelco-D, Lilin, and Dynacolor. The control can be executed either locally, or via Internet browser. An important advantage of the video server is support for RTSP protocol and possibility of remote monitoring and viewing archives with popular media players like Quick Time Player or VLC.
