EVE FOUR

Four-channel IP video encoder

EVE FOUR

The EVE FOUR is a compact, easy-to-use video encoder that transforms four analogue cameras to IP. It makes the migration to an IP-based video network affordable without swapping the existing analogue cameras. By combining advanced picture enhancement, efficient H.264 encoding at full frame rate, and the highest resolution possible (960H), the EVE series encoders deliver the sharpest detail, the best clarity, and the highest picture quality at the lowest bit rates. The EVE FOUR is fully compatible with the Sense video management system (VMS) and, being conformant with ONVIF profile S, with all other major video management systems.

Description

Click & Go
Out of the box, the EVE FOUR is ready for operation and can be mounted in one click. The only thing it needs is a bit of space on a DIN rail. Set-up is made easy: the EVE FOUR gets its own address in the network and can be accessed by its device host name. Connect the cameras and you are ready to go. The comprehensive web app guides you through the web interface as if child’s play.

Picture enhancement
The EVE FOUR connects to every analogue camera, even if it is not of the best quality. With a range of tools it enhances the video to a crisp, clear image. Camera noise can be eliminated by Siqura’s 3D adaptive noise reduction and interlacing artifacts are removed by motion adaptive deinterlacing (M.A.D.). Brightness, contrast, hue, and sharpness of the image can be adjusted for the best result.

Image quality monitor and tamper detector
When the image from the camera becomes too poor, even for the encoder to enhance, an Image Quality alert is raised. The image is continuously monitored on contrast, exposure, focus, and noise by the unique Image Quality Monitor. In addition, the built-in tamper detector monitors changes in the position or field of view of the camera. The instant a camera’s position is changed a Tamper Detect alert is raised.

ONVIF and Open Streaming Architecture (OSA)
The EVE FOUR supports both the international ONVIF standard and OSA for remote control, configuration, video switching, and streaming. The encoder has been approved for ONVIF Profile S for streaming, PTZ, and I/O. An alternative control interface is SPI, a comprehensive programming interface for remotecontrol of the encoder over http.

960H Support
The EVE FOUR supports 960H enhanced definition SD cameras, producing a stunning, 650 TVL resolution in PAL/NTSC with an aspect ratio of 16x9 (widescreen). EVE FOUR encoders are use 960H technology to sample any standard PAL or NTSC camera. This means that the EVE FOUR uses 33% more samples to encode a normal TV line, thus producing the sharpest image possible.
