Nextiva S4100 Feature Set

The Nextiva S4100 captures and transmits images from virtually anywhere with high reliability, excellent scalability, and lower operational costs. The S4100 consists of two units - a wireless encoder/transmitter and a decoder/receiver - and features Verint’s industry-leading video encoding technology for 4CIF/30fps video quality with optimal use of network bandwidth. When using the unique Verint SPCF protocol, the S4100 features effective throughput of up to 28Mbps, more than 2½ times the capacity of prior devices, for high efficiency and lower cost of ownership and operation.

The S4100 transmits video using the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz (license-free) wireless band or the 4.9 GHz (licensed) US or Canada public safety band. A built-in, multi-band antenna lets users switch wireless frequencies by reconfiguring the software, rather than having to replace the unit. And Verint’s proprietary SDCF polling resolves hidden node and quality of service issues characteristic of conventional Wi-Fi 802.11 products.

Ideal for Wireless Point-to-Point Applications

By eliminating the need to install separate video encoders and wireless video transmitters, the S4100 decreases installation, equipment, and maintenance costs, speeds deployment, and reduces power and space requirements. With compact, weatherproof enclosures, the S4100 is ideal for outdoor, wireless point-to-point applications.

Simplified, Flexible Configuration

Ethernet ports on the transmitter and receiver simplify configuration and maintenance and allow the S4100 to connect to an IP camera, chemical sensor, infrared wall, or other Ethernet device. The S4100 also features auto-sensing serial ports to connect to motorized domes, PTZ cameras, and other asynchronous serial devices, with an optional connection for a second analog camera. AES encryption with rotating 128-bit key provides a high level of security during wireless video transmission.

Manage with Nextiva

The Nextiva S4100 is fully integrated with the Nextiva video solution portfolio, including all Nextiva video management software. The S4100 can be centrally configured and administered using Nextiva Control Center, an easy-to-use management portal, and automatically monitored using Nextiva HealthCheck for greater uptime and lower service costs.

The S4100 is part of the Nextiva wireless video portfolio, which leads the industry in innovation and value. Built on accepted industry standards, these intelligent edge devices are designed for high availability, easy interoperability with IT infrastructure and video systems, and superior performance.
