video unit

A video unit is a type of video encoding or decoding device that is capable of communicating over an IP network and can incorporate one or more video encoders. Video units are available in a variety of brands and models, some of which support audio and others support wireless communication. The high-end encoding models also include their own recording and video analytic capabilities. Cameras (IP or analog), video encoders, and video decoders are all examples of video units.
