When Internet Protocol (IP) cameras first hit the scene, they were too expensive and required way too much bandwidth to be extremely practical. Not to mention that there were not too many IP cameras readily available at the time. Because of these reasons, many end users argued that these revolutionary cameras were actually not any better than analog. The industry tried addressing its various issues by looking to more megapixel cameras to meet surveillance needs, but this still failed to deliver the type of all-encompassing solution that users were seeking.
But there is a solution that makes sense – High Definition (HD). This article by IP Security Watch explains the impact HD has had on the IP field.
HD cameras are the perfect medium between standard definition analog cameras and high-end megapixel cameras. These newer HD models are providing users with better picture quality, color saturation and low-light performance at a much lower cost. What more can you ask for?
End users want the best possible picture quality available with the lowest possible bandwidth requirements around in order to capture any incidents that may occur. HD offers that, but at the price of an analog system. And with the ability to zoom in up to three times the normal amount, end users love the versatility of the new HD systems. Coupled with its ability to perform just as well in low-light situations as it does in well-lit areas, HD cameras are becoming a surveillance necessity.
Thanks to HD, IP technology is here to stay. And with HD still evolving, the possibilities are endless.
