This letter contains latest information about the above mentioned product.
1. General
This initial release covers the new multi-channel H.264 encoders VJT-X20XF-E and VJT-X40XF-E.
The products are loaded with initial firmware version 5.50.0056.
VJT-X20XF-E and VJT-X40XF-E are multi-channel high-performance video encoders with Dual
Streaming H.264 plus a third JPEG stream. In addition, a fourth I-frame-only stream can be delivered.
Both encoders always provide bi-directional audio.
The encoders provide motion detection MOTION+ but do not provide any further video content
analysis.
The graphical user interface supports 2 languages per firmware package including online help files.
The initial firmware package includes English and German. Other languages are available as separate
firmware packages, each including English - as the global support language - plus another language.
The encoders provide support for low bandwidth connections via Region-of-Interest cut-outs for both
live and replay as well as transcoding of recordings for replay.
