New AI enabled dual camera encoder

Introducing A New AI Capable H.265 SDI and Infrared Camera Encoder

Wednesday, March 29, 2023 | Press Releases

Z3 Technology, LLC, a leading provider of video encoding systems, is excited to announce a new AI capable low latency dual Camera Encoder that supports SDI and IR Cameras. This H.265/H.264 encoder simultaneously streams and records  3G-SDI or HD-SDI video and long range thermal cameras such as the FLIR® Boson®, FLIR® Tau® 2 , Leonardo DRS® Tenum® and other custom digital or analog thermal cameras.

The new FSDI-13A is a perfect fit for unmanned and cutting-edge surveillance systems which require a feature-rich video encoder and customizable edge analytics in a small efficient form-factor. Key features available with the product include the ability to send KLV metadata with the data stream or GPS timestamp overlays on the video as well as providing customers a platform to implement their own edge analytics. The system is designed and built by Z3 Technology using an Ambarella® processor, providing the cybersecurity required for NDAA, BAA and TAA compliance.

Customers can easily integrate the FSDI-13A into their Video Management Systems through ONVIF® Profile S and T compliance. Controls for the cameras can be sent over Ethernet with integrated FLIR®, Sony® VISCA® and Leonardo DRS® controls. The camera and encoder can be managed through the Web GUI, ONVIF, HTTPS API or serial.

The FSDI-13A is available with either software preloaded or with an optional SDK rapid proto-typing starter kit. The FSDI-15A option provides a lightweight external interface for products that have space or weight restrictions.
