CCTV

CCTV has come a long way since the early days of recording into tapes. The advent of sophisticated algorithms like H.265+ means that CCTV footage can be in super high definition yet take up little Hard Disk space. With the incorporation of AI Face recognition, CCTV today has exceeded the boundaries of just mere recordings to active people tracking in an ecosystem as big as a whole city.

Benefits of video surveillance system

Video surveillance systems help protect your business and give you peace of mind.

Video surveillance systems have come a long way from fixed security cameras. This technology now functions as miniature computers, offering features such as motion sensors and automatic mobile notifications or automatically contacting law enforcement. There are also newer, more efficient ways to manage and store recordings, allowing business owners easy access to past videos.

Small business owners now have access to immensely powerful video surveillance systems at relatively affordable prices, depending on what type of system is using, the number of cameras, building size and other factors unique to each business.

When it comes to buying and implementing a new video surveillance system for business, most vendors allow a large degree of customizability, meaning you can tailor a system to your business’s needs. Whether you need a widespread system that covers multiple locations or just a few cameras to watch your storefront, there’s a solution for everyone.

What is IP Camera?

An Internet Protocol Camera, commonly referred to as an IP camera, is a digital video camera much like a webcam, which transmits and receives data over a network or the internet. Unlike an ordinary webcam it is a standalone unit with its own IP address that requires nothing more than a network connection in order to transfer images. The IP camera connects to a network in exactly the same way as any other standard network device such as a laptop, tablet or printer.

IP cameras capture images in much the same way as a digital camera, and compress the files to transmit over the network. IP cameras may be used with a wired network connected via ethernet cable to a broadband modem or router, or wirelessly via a WiFi router.

Why IP Cameras ?

ease of installation

PoE switches enable signal cables to provide power to the IP cameras as well, reducing the need for those additional cables.


image resolution

Resolution in IP cameras have superior image quality to that of analogs. There are different resolutions and aspect ratios customizable to any specific needs.

intelligence & security

IP cameras offer network intelligence and remote manageability. Plus, video is encrypted and authenticated so transmission is secure.


scalability

IP camera is universal and its cabling requirements are less complex which makes it easier to expand and add new functions.

What is analog Camera?

An analogue camera is a traditional camera used in CCTV systems. Analog cameras record images and then send the signal over a coaxial cable to a DVR (Digital Video Recorder). The DVR converts the video from analog to digital signals, compresses the file, and stores it on a hard drive. Monitors need to be hooked up to the DVR to view the video, or the DVR can be connected to a router and modem to broadcast it over the internet through an internal network. The main difference between analog CCTV and digital (IP) CCTV is the method by which video is recorded and delivered.

why Analog Cameras ?

lower cost

Analog cameras tend to be significantly cheaper, especially as the camera count increases.

simplicity

Analog cameras are fairly easy to run, sending recordings to a digital video recorder (DVR), which then converts the analog to digital and stores it. DVR is easier to set up and understand for most. It is one unit with one cost, and the installation is more straightforward.

reliability

Analogue security cameras have been around for more than half a century and have a long history of reliability.

more design options

With a wider variety of analog camera designs, you may have an easier time finding a camera model with all of the features you need at a lower cost.
