Lanner Electronics has released two compact video server platforms with hardware H.264 compression, network connectivity and central management software.

Measuring 40mm in height, the Lanner VS-F120 and VS-F710 video servers are designed for IP surveillance systems and other applications where analogue video is compressed and transmitted over a network.

The VS-F120 is a single-port video server that provides one-channel analogue input and H.264/AVC compression, while the VS-F710 provides four-channel analogue video input.

Both systems include Lanner’s reference surveillance management software, Eyeshot 1000, and both support Power over Ethernet (POE).

‘The H.264/AVC standard has created all kinds of possibilities for video by providing high resolution and visual quality with low file size and minimal bandwidth consumption,’ said Herman Chen, product manager, Lanner Video Communications.

The Lanner VS-F120 and VS-F710 can be installed just about anywhere.

They are suitable for building small-scale surveillance systems with only a few cameras, or expanding coverage for an existing video surveillance system.

They can also serve as platforms for many other non-surveillance applications such as factory automation, video broadcasting, online education or traffic monitoring.

The VS-F120 is an IP video server measuring 100 x 111 x 40mm that captures an analogue signal and compresses it in H.264/AVC format for network delivery.

It provides one BNC connector for analogue video input and one audio jack for audio encoding, plus one RJ-45 LAN port for network connectivity.

It also includes DC power input, alarm input and alarm out, RS-485 alarm relay and sensor output, S-Video Out and one-button factory default reset.

The Lanner VS-F710 is slightly wider than the VS-F120 and provides four analogue video inputs and one video looping output, audio in/out, LCPM and MPEG-2 AAC audio compression and WAN port.

Both video servers include hardware H.264/AVC (MPEG-4 part 10) encoding to provide up to full D1 resolution video for both NTSC and PAL formats with reduced file size and network bandwidth consumption.

Eyeshot 1000 central management tool is a Windows XP-compatible software that can be used for managing and viewing multiple video streams in real-time, video file and storage management, PTZ control, alarm relay and sensor output and motion detection features.
