In its simplest form surveillance is the supervision of behavior, activities, or other changing information, usually of people for the purpose of influencing, managing, directing, or protecting. Video surveillance allows individuals to observe from a distance by means of electronic equipment CCTV cameras. These cameras are often connected to a recording device or IP network, and be watch remotely or locally.
During the last decade video surveillance prices have dropped dramatically due to technological advancements. Where corporations, businesses, and other large entities ruled the buying market, homeowners have quickly become a major portion of the video surveillance market.
What is the Difference Between CCTV and IP?
CCTV (Closed Circuit Television) equipment is an older outdated solution which required Coaxial cable and power wires to be run from each camera back to the central viewing location and records analog signals as pictures on a recording media, commonly VCRs up until the Early 2000's . The Pictures or what you see on the Screen is measured in TVL or Television Lines and are what we consider today as SD or Standard Definition. Analog signals, however, can be converted into a digital signal to allow the recording to be stored on a DVR (Digital Video Recorder) onto Hard Drives as digital recordings. DVRs function similarly to a computer with a capture card and video recording software. Most DVRs designed for surveillance purposes are embedded devices that require less maintenance and easy to setup.
IP camera Equipment does not require a All the cable to be run to the central viewing and recording area, they use the existing infrastructure of your LAN (Local Area Network). The IP Cameras are much like the DVR all built into one unit, the Camera does all the compression of the video before it send it to be recorded directly to a NVR (Network Video Recorder). Uncompressed digital recordings take up an enormous amount of space thus digital signals are compressed 5:1 and DVD quality can be achieved with additional compression. Most standard recordings are somewhat poor in quality because most of the image chips within the devices record at 320p. Luckily, technological advancements have made high-definition (HD) cameras a lot more affordable.
Unlike analog surveillance equipment, digital surveillance equipment records at 30 framers per second. Digital recording are far more clear and visually smooth than analog equipment.
