The digital revolution has taken the security industry by storm in recent years, and video surveillance is no exception.
IP (internet protocol) Video Surveillance continues to evolve as the dominant electronic security solution for business; industry; government and even residential applications.
While the transformation from traditional analog video to IP technology has been a slow-moving process, there’s no doubt that today video is about IP.
The IP Advantage
IP video surveillance systems offer a number of advantages over older analog systems. They offer more flexibility in terms of placement, access and a range of features that analog can’t touch. Enhanced megapixel cameras offer superior resolution and image capture capacity. It all adds up to a more modern, superior video surveillance system.
While there are still some challenges with IP systems – storage, network capacity, cable distance and lighting – all of these challenges can be overcome with complementary technologies and solutions that make IP the technology of choice for security applications today.
Making the Switch to IP Video Surveillance
What was once a costly proposition is more affordable than ever for businesses, corporations and everyday consumers; the rapid growth and adoption of IP Video Surveillance has resulted in a much more cost effective option for the public.
Manufacturing efforts have ramped up to address the changing market and they have also developed ever increasing features and benefits. We have seen the technology develop to support 180° and 360° IP cameras, along with the development of increased megapixel resolution cameras. Research and development continues to focus on developing creative solutions for security challenges.
Hybrid solutions allow for the transition from analogue video to IP using a variety of solutions designed to effectively leverage existing cable infrastructure. Some systems offer encoders and converter technology to allow organizations to maintain much of their existing infrastructure as they move to IP.
