VPort 461 Video Encoder - The VPort 461 is an industrial video encoder that takes analog video and converts it to digital to send over the Ethernet. The VPort 461 is the first Industrial video encoder that can easily integrate existing analog video into your SCADA system.  You can now utilize your security camera network as well as any other specialty cameras that exist to actually see why an alarm condition may have occurred. The VPort comes with plug-ins for the most popular SCADA systems such as Wonderware, Citect, Proficy and others.  Simply drag the supplied widget into your SCADA system software and you will then get a video popup window when an event of your choosing occurs.  Imagine seeing a live video feed from your desk before having to physically inspect why an alarm occurred.  Faster and more appropriate responses can be made saving time and money. 

The VPort 461 supports 3 simultaneous video streams in 3 different formats: H.264, MJPEG, MPEG4.  This allows you to send one stream to a recorder for quality and logging purposes, one stream to the SCADA system, and one for live monitoring or security.  Don't worry about slowing your SCADA network down, H.264 is highly compressed high quality video.  With the VPort 461 you can now SEE your alarms and have more relevant information right in front of you.
