IP Embedded Standalone 16 Channel H.264 Encoder

iSP416 is astand-alone multi-channel IP networked surveillance encoder using TI DaVinci™ technology for enhanced video monitoring, robust data streaming, and operation reliability. It is a unit that guarantees easy installation and integration with most existing security systems.

With iSP416 you can provide a cost effective solution to upgrade any existing DVR system to an IP networked surveillance system without replacing any analog cameras. Simply connect the existing cameras to iSP416 to generate IP video streams. Control individual channels through Milestone XProtect™ or any other IP Video Management Software as desired. In fact, Darim’s own VideoSpider™ VMS enables users to handle networking, storage management, and client-server operations very easily.

iSP416 delivers high quality video for all channels – 30 fps H.264 per channel performance. It is a modularized networked video encoder NVE that offers the ability to stream high-quality video over IP LANs, WANs and the Internet using RTSP (over UDP, TCP) and RTMP protocols. iSP416 also includes up to 16-channel audio, alarm, and relay capabilities, thus further enhancing security system functionality.

Darim’s Network Video Encoders provide users with local or remote storage possibility for optimal and reliable surveillance data storing without interrupting the streaming process to multiple client all over the world. Local storages (USB HDD, USB Flash) can be directly connected to iSP416 video encoder, while the network storages require NAS (NFS/SMB/CIFS). Configure storages and shared folders via web interface, as well the individual storage options for every channel, event triggered recording on motion, external alarm events, etc.
