Easy Upgrade for Video Surveillance System with Moxa's VPort 351 Industrial Video Encoder

Easy upgrade for video surveillance system with MOXA's VPort 351 industrial video encoder

Taipei, Taiwan, Feb. 26, 2007-Moxa Technologies, one of the world's leading manufacturers of industrial Ethernet products, recently announced the release of the VPort 351, an industrial video encoder that features an industrial-grade rugged design, good transmission efficiency, and high reliability. The VPort 351 is a high performance, 1-channel industrial video encoder that provides up to full D1 resolution @ 30 FPS and supports a dual MJPEG4/MJPEG algorithm, making it especially well suited for use with distributed surveillance systems in critical industrial applications. In addition, a continuous pre/post event trigger video record function can help system administrators determine why an alarm was triggered. The 2-way audio is provided for the convenience of real-time communication between system administrators located at the central site, and engineers in the field.

Real-time full D1 MPEG4/MJPEG streams @ 30 FPS
The VPort 351 has a video stream performance at full resolution and full frame rate to create a real-time record for video surveillance applications. The new MOXA VPort 351 video encoder can process up to 30 frames/sec at full D1 (NTSC: 720x480, PAL: 720x576) resolution to transmit a truly live video performance.

Industrial-grade design suitable for any harsh environment
The MOXA VPort 351 features DIN-Rail Mounting capability, 12/24 VDC or 24 VAC redundant power inputs, and IP30 protection to meet the requirements of industrial environments. The VPort 351-T, which is an extended temperature model with operating temperature range of -40 to 75°C, is well suited for outdoor and harsh environments, such as roadways, refineries, and power plants. In addition, the VPort 351 has received important industrial and safety approvals, such as UL508, Class1, Div. 2, making it suitable for transportation, utility, and manufacturing systems. The product has enclosure, EMI, and surge protection to defend against any harmful interference.
