How to Select an Encoder

Originally Recorded on July 30, 2019 at 2PM ET

Specifying an encoder involves a number of factors and misconceptions abound. In this webinar, attendees will learn how to match the encoder to the application, what information they need to make the right choice, and whether an ultra-high-resolution encoder will make a sloppy system more accurate (it won't).
