IP video network surveillance systems are constantly evolving to better meet the needs of the end-user. And, as you can imagine, one of the primary areas of development has been network cameras. After all, while every component is important, a surveillance system is really only as effective as its cameras allow it to be.
Features of Today’s Network Cameras
- Improved Resolution: Cameras are available in megapixel resolutions as high as 10 an even higher. And in the security industry, resolution and a greater ability to identify details, such as license plates and faces, is the goal.
- Greater Functionality: Today’s cameras do more than simply capture images. They also offer greater functionality, including video motion detection (VMD), edge-based analytics, face recognition, and more.
- Efficiency: Cameras using H.264 compression not only offer higher-quality video streaming and high frame rates, but they do so while also utilizing lower bandwidth and storage requirements at a lower cost. Newer cameras may also use less power, saving the end-user even more money in terms of monthly energy bills.
- Adaptability: Newer cameras can better adapt to a wide variety of conditions, including low light. Plus, many of today’s cameras are also built to withstand vandalism or environmental challenges.
- Greater Range: Cameras with more megapixels allow users to not only cover a larger area, but also zoom in without losing much clarity.
- Seamless Integration: IP systems offer superior connectivity, allowing for the seamless integration of video surveillance systems with other IP systems within a network environment.
