C-60 E-MC

One-channel IP video encoder

C-60 E-MC

The Siqura C-60 E-MC multi-codec video server combines H.264, MPEG-4, and MJPEG video encoding. It’s an open, cost-effective solution designed to operate under extreme conditions. The C-60 E-MC features robust, reliable, crystal clear, highly detailed, and low bandwidth video and is interoperable with most existing systems.


  • Supports H.264/MPEG-4/MJPEG encoding
  • Image quality monitor and tamper detector
  • Field hardened (NEMA TS-2)
  • Multi-steaming support
  • Duplex serial data and stereo audio
  • ONVIF Profile S
  • NTCIP protocol support


Image quality monitor and tampering alarm
The C-60 E-MC is fitted with video analytics to check the health of connected cameras. This image quality monitor analyses contrast, exposure, sharpness and noise. Camera tampering analytics detect any changes in the camera’s position or field of view. The instant a camera is subject to failure or tampering, an alert can be raised.

Enhanced video quality
Modern flat LCD monitors show artefacts with standard PAL or NTSC video. Standard deinterlacing loses half of the vertical resolution. Siqura’s sophisticated deinterlacing scheme optimises vertical resolution resulting in superior video images without artefacts.

ONVIF and Siqura Programming Interface (SPI)
The C-60 E-MC supports the international ONVIF standard for remote control, configuration, video switching, and streaming. The encoder has been approved for ONVIF Profile S
for streaming, PTZ, and I/O. An alternative control interface is the SPI, a comprehensive HTTP- and RTSP-based API for remote control of the encoder that makes full integration easy.

Multi-streaming per channel
The C-60 E-MC encoder is capable of streaming H.264, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, and MJPEG simultaneously. Each stream is optimized for its purpose, e.g. high-quality H.264 or MPEG-2 live viewing, low bandwidth H.264 or MPEG-4 storage, and low resolution MJPEG for web applications or remote devices. The H.264 implementation is based on dedicated hardware resulting in unparalleled video quality.

Audio, data, and I/O contacts
Combining streaming video with duplex audio, serial data, and I/O contacts over IP, the C-60 E-MC provides all the interfaces necessary for any CCTV application (CD-quality stereo audio, lip–sync audio, PTZ control, alarm contacts, access control, etc.). Internal video motion detection (VMD) can be used for automated security solutions or event-triggered storage.
