Video surveillance is moving away from grainy, analog CCTV technology in favor of high-resolution, networked digital video cameras with on-board analytics. These next-generation IP cameras are capable of analyzing content in real-time, as well as streaming secure, high-resolution video over a standard network -- which allows for viewing, recording and management from virtually anywhere.
IP Camera Systems
Analog security cameras have long been the standard type of camera used in surveillance systems, but IP cameras have surged in popularty over the last five years. When IP cameras were introduced, they were prohibitively expensive and didn't produce noticeably greater quality videos than analog cameras did.
However, as the technology has become more readily available and more surveillance companies have invested in developing this technology, IP cameras have dramatically increased in quality and decreased in price which has made them more affordable than ever!
IP Camera popularity is on the rise and it is estimated that over 60% of all security camera systems sold over the next few years will be IP based. The advantages of IP cameras over analog cameras are below.
Analog Camera Systems
Choose from a variety of cost-effective, high-resolution analog cameras including the family of high-speed dome positioning systems. Designed for a variety of applications, these analog cameras bring solutions that meet the needs of today's security professionals and home buyers.
Remote administration from any location.
The ability to easily send images and video anywhere with an Internet connection.
Progressive scanning, which enables better quality images extracted from the video, especially for moving targets.
Adjustable frame rates and resolution to meet specific needs.
The ability to send alerts if suspicious activity is detected.
Lower cabling requirements.
Support for intelligent video.
An IP camera is a networked digital video camera that
transmits data over a Fast Ethernet link. IP cameras
(also called "network cameras") are most often used for
IP surveillance, a digitized and networked version of
closed-circuit television (CCTV).
An analog surveillance camera begins with a CCD sensor and then digitizes the image for processing. But before it can transmit the video, it needs to convert it back to analog so it can be received by an analog device, such as a video monitor or recorder.
A digital video recorder configured for physical security applications record video signals from closed-circuit television cameras for detection and documentation purposes. Many are designed to record audio as well, whether at the camera or as a separate apparatus in an isolated area. DVRs have evolved into devices that are feature rich and provide options that exceed the simple task of recording video images that was previously done through VCRs.
A network video recorder (NVR) is a software program that records video in a digital format to a disk drive, USB flash drive, SD memory card or other mass storage device.
