Gemini, is an advanced video multiplexer system that allows up to four independent video channels to be transported over a single link. By effectively quadrupling the number of cameras over a standard video connection, Gemini can dramatically save hardware and installation costs.
Gemini is compatible with any real-time PAL or NTSC video link, whether coax, fibre-optic or wireless. The Gemini encoder automatically configures itself to the number of active cameras connected, switching on each video field, ensuring the best possible picture update rate at all times.
The decoder provides four independent video outputs, together with picture-in-picture options allowing several cameras to be monitored on one or a combination of two screens.
Gemini is ideally suited for expanding the capacity of RF & microwave wireless links as it performs well in difficult reception conditions and also makes best use of the limited number of RF frequencies available. The encoder and decoder units are simple to install, DC powered and housed in rugged watertight housings - ideal for any video surveillance installation.
With Gemini-4 there is now a highly cost effective way of adding capacity to any video surveillance link.
