Decoders - Live View Solutions for Video Walls, Guard Stations, Production Monitoring, and Operational Data
A decoder is a device that grabs multiple IP camera streams from multiple cameras or NVRs, and allows you to display them on multiple monitors or TVs using HDMI connections.
If you need to see a lot of cameras, like a guard station, command center, or for process monitoring a decoder is a vital piece of equipment. You use Viewstation, our VMS, to setup and modify what is seen on the decoder output. In a command center this will be used in conjunction with each other: with the decoder used to show all cameras on the video wall and viewstation used to focus on areas of concern. However, this is not the only use for a decoder. Unlike viewstation, you can also use a decoder to create a live view feed that is not alterable by the user, which is invaluable at reducing compliance issues. This means that you use a decoder to create a guard station that has no mouse or keyboard and which has no possibility that the security guard is browsing the internet or playing minesweeper instead of looking at the video feed. In the same way, the safety compliance team in a manufacturing environment never has to worry about if the user maximized a single camera and is missing key feedback, such as a production jam or increase in temperature on a manufacturing sensor.
Decoders can add remote / VPN devices if they have network access to them, but you need to make sure you have the bandwidth both on the internet side and VPN wise to deal with it.
Our decoders also have HDMI inputs that allow you to pull in non-surveillance video. So, for example, a retailer could connect to a PC running a looping presentation showing a business promotion, offer or update. As another example, a manufacturer or energy company might display the production outputs / machine diagnostics of operational sensors or production measurement software.
