Why Choose an High Definition IP System?

Resolution ! One of the biggest factors driving interest in IP video systems is the high resolution that they can offer. Analog cameras max out on resolution at about 580 TVL which equates to roughly 0.4 mega pixels. High end IP cameras on the other hand, are currently available at resolutions as high as 10 mega pixels. This high resolution in turn gives users the ability to zoom in on video during and after the fact, and still have usable video. Just like pictures taken with digital cameras, the more pixels the better the clarity so your image will be much clearer with an IP camera.

What is the difference between an High Definition (HD) IP camera and analog megapixel CCTV camera?

Megapixel cameras are named for the number of pixels that make up the image. All Megapixel IP cameras or HD have at least 1,000,000 pixels, while a standard resolution analog camera has no more than 345,600 pixels of resolution. Megapixel cameras are ideal for HD or facial and license plate recognition. Most of Megapixel IP cameras have POE function, allowing to transmit both video signal (data) and camera power via a single cable Cat 5E connected to a switch, allowing savings in cabling system installation CCTV. Additionally the video is stored in units called NVR (Network Video Recorder) which can be located virtually anywhere by way of the Wide Area Network or more commonly known as “The Internet”
