Welcome to the
If you need to handle
1) Like a computer, the speed of the multiplexers image sampling circuitry, will dictate how many images per second can be captured (the more images /sec, the less 'stepped' the movement looks in each individual channel).
2) Most multiplexers can display images from a single camera or using a top end model, a mosaic of up to 32 individual camera pictures
3) With most Duplex multiplexers, picture quality is noticeably improved in a Live mosaic, rather than a 'VCR' output mosaic.
4) At present, a very limited number of multiplexers can be hot linked to a Digital Video Recorder, using a high resolution 'digital' signal connection.
5) Most multiplexers offer Loop through video connectors on the back, so camera signals can also be linked to secondary display equipment (such as switchers, quad etc.).
6) Although multiplexers can form the pivotal hub of a large CCTV system, without backup, they can also be the weakest link..
7) Some of the more advanced units on the market, also offer sophisticated motion detection functions as standard.
8) Some multiplexers include Video Loss Alarm circuits, so if a camera fails or is disabled, an indicator + alarm will go off.
9) With a few TRIPLEX units, it is possible to display video playback, and live images on the same screen, whilst recording at the same time
10) Using two identical multiplexers, it is usually possible to transmit a large number of images down a single communication link (cable, fibre optic etc.) and then reconstitute the individual signals at the other end ... very cost effective!!
