The VM-HD4 is an HD video multiplexer (Mux) that is compatible with analog CCTV and HD CCTV cameras (HD-TVI, AHD, HDCVI). This quad screen processor takes video input from up to 4 security cameras via BNC video inputs, combines the video signals, and outputs video via HDMI, VGA, or 2 BNC (CVBS) video outputs. The video output layout is controlled via the included wireless remote. The following video output modes are supported: quad screen, single camera full screen, PIP (picture in picture), dual screen (2 camera split), auto sequence (single camera scrolling / dwell time).
Each input channel of the VM-HD4 can accept analog CCTV, HDCVI (720p or 1080p) HD-TVI (720p or 1080p), and AHD (720p or 1080p) cameras. Users can mix and match any combination of these camera types on a single device. NTSC and PAL video format cameras are supported however all cameras must be either NTSC or PAL. US and European video standards cannot be mixed.
The VM-HD4 supports dual monitor output, which means that the HDMI and VGA outputs can both be used at the same time. In addition, the analog BNC video output can also be used with both the HDMI and VGA outputs connected.
Please see the below
demo video and sample CCTV quad multiplexor images for examples of these video modes. You can also see a how-to install / wiring diagram here. The VM-HD4 includes a power supply and a wireless remote control which allows users to access all settings and controls.
