Edge Recording

Antrica is an industry-leading manufacturer and supplier of hardware video encoders & decoders who have been a well-known name in this industry for 15 years. We specialise in this niche video over IP industry and supply to a range of markets worldwide. Their products are set apart from the competition in terms of reliability, performance (including SD or USB local recording), integration and compatibility.

Edge recording, also called local storage or onboard recording, is when a camera or encoder records video directly onto a USB, SD or memory card in the camera/encoder instead of a separate NVR or storage device.

Edge recording gives you more flexibility in recording video and enables either a backup of video or in place of a VMS system. ONVIF defines Profile G as a way of the VMS taking edge-recorded video and sending it back to the VMS, rather than physically unplugging the USB from the encoder.

Antrica’s encoders include a range of products with edge recording, mostly via a USB connection, and this has proven to be a regularly requested feature.

Video Encoders enable us to distribute a whole NVR’s screen over IP, using less bandwidth than sending all the ip streams separately.

The ANT-3xxxx range is fully ONVIF Profile S & G Compliant.

 

A fully ONVIF encoder will 100% work as ONVIF guarantees compatibility (ANT-3XXXX range). However, if you need a ‘view only’ stream and can live without ONVIF discovery then we have the ANT-2XXX range which can sometimes integrate. We can provide a public IP stream for you to test if you need.

Yes, we do for larger projects. We also offer a remote way of testing the stream’s integration.

Any H.265 option will be suitable.

The ANT-36100, as it has alarm/serial data controls, as well as PoE, and is a more industrial-type decoder.

Yes. Providing you have anti-static handling procedures in place, these can be used in any applications where it can be ‘housed’.

This is due to the fact we use low bit rates and compression, so we need at least 1-2 frames for encoding. Decoders need buffering to work, so most latency is in the decoder end.

Yes and no. Any decoding and re-encoding potentially reduces the quality, but using sufficiently high bit rates will allow the quality to look as good as the original.

Yes, these are intended to be low-latency wireless links with Video in and Video out.

Some of our decoders don’t have HD-SDI as an output. These converters offer a solution to have an HD-SDI output when required.

ANTRICA 'GOES GREEN' - SINGLE USE PLASTIC ZERO "usage" POLICY

Antrica have taken on the challenge of reducing to zero all single use plastic within its packaging of Encoders and Decoders by the end of 2020. We are also striving to provide paperless shipments wherever possible.

Together we can make the world better!
