From http://www.baslerweb.com/beitraege/beitrag_en_70777.html, it says "Video compression with standards-compliant MJPEG, MPEG4, or H.264 encoding. This flexible approach allows the customized use of multiple MJPEG streams while also using an MPEG4 or H.264 encoded stream. The resolution and frame rate of the MJPEG image streams and the MPEG4 or H.264 stream can be independently adjusted."  That seems to say you can choose which compression to use.  If you want a hardware decoder, I would suggest a surveillance camera card, such as from Avermedia or Geovision.  I have an Arecont Vision IP camera which outputs H.264, and it works with the Avermedia card I have.  www.apexcctv.com sells a number of different configurations of these.

Hi Callandor,

Thank you very much for your information. But for the decoder, I will need it to state very clearly that it supports Basler model before I can purchase it because I need 10 to 15 devices in one shot.

Here's one manufacturer that says so: http://www.git-security.com/news/basler-ip-cameras-supported-genetec  I don't know if you can buy a decoder card from them.

The more general solution is that MJPEG, MPEG4, or H.264 encoding are all standard image stream protocols, so specific camera support really isn't necessary.  The card just has to support the capture of a particular protocol, and if the camera outputs it, it will be captured.  When a camera sends video over a network, it has to use a standard or it won't be very useful.  IP cameras don't distinguish themselves on the transport protocol, but on the features and performance of the camera.
