Designed to be an easy entry into low bitrate, 4K transmission, Specta 4K is designed to be quickly configurable and deployable in a large number of scenarios whilst supporting a wide range of video inputs.

Take it with you for a drone deployment and transmit reliable high-quality video over cellular. Deploy it into a remote station with up to 4 camera feeds, allowing more situational awareness than standard encoders with limited camera inputs. Specta 4K supports just about any IP security camera on the market, including ONVIF PTZ cameras with full remote control into your VMS.

Support for USB devices is also available, including small webcam-like devices or HDMI/SDI adapters to open up compatibility with more cameras. Setup is as simple as assigning server and IP settings in the USB configurator, powering the unit on and remote control via the server. Once connected, the server redistributes your compressed video feeds as RTSP/ ONVIF S in H.264/H.265 format while keeping the bitrate low.
