Pelco lifts certification requirements for selling its Endura encoders

Clovis, CA (May 15, 2009) – Pelco is pleased to announce that, effective immediately, it has removed the Endura certification requirement for selling Endura NET5301T and NET5308T Encoders. Now, Pelco’s line of Endura IP video encoders is also available for use with non-Endura recording and management devices.

This is good news for customers who want more choices for keeping their existing analog dome cameras while migrating to IP video transmission and recording. The NET5300-series of high performance encoders generate two streams of MPEG4 compressed video, each at up to 4CIF resolution and 30/25IPS, from each camera input. The encoders feature bi-directional audio support, built-in motion detection, and support the Pelco P, D, and Coaxitron PTZ protocols. Additional information is available at

This is especially good news for Digital Sentry customers who want to use Pelco encoders in their installations. The just-released Digital Sentry version 4.2 introduces support for NET Series encoders (NET5301T & NET5308T) from Pelco, as well as all Sarix-based IP cameras and Pelco KBD300 Keyboards. Also in keeping with Pelco’s commitment to open and integrated systems, Digital Sentry supports more than 60 third-party IP devices.

“Now our customers have more options – they can build that Analog-to-IP bridge with all-Pelco products, or by leveraging existing cameras from multiple vendors. Either way, Pelco delivers the solution that meets the customer’s specific needs,” says Linda Myers, Pelco Digital Systems Product Marketing Manager.
