AXIS Q7404 Video Encoder is a high performance, four-channel standalone solution that integrates four analog cameras at a time into an IP-based video surveillance system. AXIS Q7404 delivers superb video quality and significant savings in bandwidth and storage with H.264.

AXIS Q7404 offers the highly efficient H.264 video compression, which drastically reduces bandwidth and storage requirements without compromising image quality. Motion JPEG is also supported for increased flexibility.

AXIS Q7404 can deliver multiple video streams simultaneously from each video channel at full frame rate in all resolutions up to D1 (720x480 in NTSC, 720x576 in PAL). The video streams can be individually configured with different compression formats, resolutions and frame rates for different needs.

AXIS Q7404 offers intelligent video capabilities such as video motion detection, active tampering alarm and audio detection. Each video channel has two configurable inputs/outputs for connections to external devices such as sensors and relays, which enable the system to receive and respond to alarms. High-quality, two-way audio is provided on one video channel.

All four video channels support pan/tilt/zoom control for PTZ and PTZ dome cameras. It is also possible to control daisy-chained cameras from one RS-485/RS-422 serial port as long as they operate on the same protocol.
