When used with PCs for monitoring and reviewing video, GovComm network video recorders (NVR) offer matrix switch-like functionality, allowing the matrix switch to be eliminated. The switching is provided by the network infrastructure with video stream management provided by the NVR. Without the matrix switch, encoders can be either centralized in multi-port configurations to support home-run cabling schemes or located closer to the camera. By situating the encoder closer to the camera, the encoder can use the pervasive IP network cabling infrastructure, further reducing the cost of redundant cabling.
For pre-existing long-range camera deployments, fiber multiplexers and distribution amplifiers can continue to coexist with encoders. Of course, for new deployments it may be possible to eliminate the need for fiber multiplexers and distribution amplifiers entirely, thereby further reducing deployment costs.
GovComm video surveillance IP Gateway encoders and IP Gateway decoders can provide true matrix switch functionality that supports not only analog cameras and PCs but also the highly specialized video surveillance keyboard controllers and monitors. This true matrix switch capability provides full multivendor best of breed mix and match interoperability.
