Honeywell’s HVE Series of Video encoders utilize the latest processors and encoding
technology to convert analog camera signals into IP streams. These IP streams can be
recorded and viewed on Honeywell’s MAXPRO® Network Video Recorders (NVRs), and other
recording devices that support ONVIF®.
Available in one, four and eight-channel models, these encoders feature a wide range of
video compressions, including H.264, which reduces bandwidth and storage over previous
compressions. Encode up to 30 fps on every channel at full resolution (4CIF), with the
capability of dual streaming.
Each model has a corresponding number of audio channels for recording capability plus a
single Audio Out to perform bidirectional audio communication.
Control PTZ cameras through the RS-485 port; PTZ control supports numerous 3rd party
PTZ protocols. Alarm inputs and relay outputs are available to trigger events on the NVR and
to control external devices. These alarms and events can be reported to the NVR, and can
also be sent either by email or by FTP upload directly from the encoder along with a captured
The HVE Series encoders support local storage. The one-channel and four-channel models
support a microSD card; the eight-channel model can accommodate a SATA hard drive
up to 4 TB. Local storage allows for storing of alarm-triggered recording, continuous, and
Video playback is easily achieved through the embedded intuitive web browser (IE, Firefox,
Chrome, or Safari) that supports HTTPS to ensure high security. Connection via the web
browser allows you to check live video or review recorded video from a remote location.
Encoders are a simple and cost-saving way to upgrade existing analog systems to include
High Definition IP cameras and MAXPRO NVRs. By converting analog signals to digital, these
encoders allow you to keep your original analog cameras. Installation costs can be further
reduced by installing the encoder remotely from the NVR. Then only a network cable is
required to bring video and events to the NVR.
