IP Surveillance System

IP Surveillance System

This is the digitized and networked version of closed-circuit television (CCTV). In this system, a high-quality network camera based on open Internet Protocol (IP) standards records video footage and connects to an IP network to distribute the recorded content. One of the key features of the IP Surveillance system is that it enables remote viewing and recording from anywhere in the world. Other benefits include simplicity, high image quality, event management and intelligent video capabilities, scalability and flexibility and cost-effectiveness.

  • Simplicity. While CCTV systems are still popular, it’s a well-established fact that they remain tedious. In analog CCTV surveillance, each camera can require separate connections for power, video output and pan/tilt/zoom control.
  • High image quality. Being able to see events and individuals involved in these events is one of the main purposes of surveillance. High image quality allows for easier and better recognition when and where it’s necessary.
  • Intelligence. Instead of having massive amounts of video that never get watched and having to miss suspicious events and activities, network cameras have the capacity for built-in video motion detection and alarm management. This way the camera can decide when to send video, at what frame and resolution, and when to alert a specific operator. Audio detection and active tampering alarm can also be included.
  • Scalability and flexibility. You might not need 300 cameras today, but who knows what you mind need when you expand in the future? A scalable system means that you can choose exactly what you need today, and additional cameras and capacities can be easily added when necessary tomorrow.
  • Cost-effectiveness. What contributes to the average lower cost of ownership of an IP Surveillance System? IP-based networks and wireless options is one. These are less expensive alternatives than coaxial and fiber cabling for an analog CCTV system. Digital video streams can also be routed using a variety of inter-operable infrastructure. Management and equipment costs are also lower since back-end applications and storage run on industry standard, open systems-based servers, not on proprietary hardware such as a DVR in the case of an analog CCTV system.
