When customers demand for the highest quality images, storage and performance, IP based CCTV systems can be the best solution. IP based system uses higher digital resolution, it starts from 720p, 1080p, 1.3mp, 5mp, 11mp and some cameras can give up to 16mp. Since there is an increase in using software’s for CCTV system such as analytical, remote viewing, remote access and integration between other security devices, many CCTV installation companies have started using IP CCTV cameras.
Most of the IP based security systems use open architecture and allows them to integrate to other security devices easily. Some of the common IP camera manufacturers are Acti, Arecont, Axis, Mobotix, Pelco, Panasonic, Sanyo, Samsung, Sightlogix, VideoIQ, Avigilon and Sony.
Advantages of using IP camera
Easy to install – since IP cameras use CAT5 cable, it is easy to install them. Where else in traditional cameras, installers had to run separate coax cables for each cameras.
Higher resolution – Analog cameras give maximum of D1 recording, which is 720 x 576, where lease lower end of IP cameras can give 720p, which is 1280 x 720 and modern day IP cameras give at least 1080p full HD resolution.
Better user management – As most IP cameras use open architecture, they can be easily integrated to a software program for better management of video footage.
Easy integration with other security devices – IP system is easy to integrate to other security devices such as access control, intruder alarm, fire alarm and door entry systems.
Most secure way of transmitting video footages – IP cameras use CAT5 cable to transmit video footages, it can be easily encrypted for data security.
Remote storage – By using a server, all video footages can be stored via LAN or WAN. This makes it easy to have remote storage or off side storage.
What is data analytic in CCTV?
Once a video footage is recorded, it can then be analysed for various reasons. For example air port security management, unattended item can be seen as a thread. By setting the correct parameters, any unattended item can be traced and an immediate alert can be issued.
In a petrol station, it is quite important to know the car number plates. When there is a query, data analytical software’s can show all cars entered at a specific time and their number plates. New avigilon data management system allows you to create a virtual boundary in your field of screen. For example, you want to know everyone who accessed a bike storage place. All you have to do now is to draw a boundary line, as soon as someone crossed that line, the system will record it as an event, later by using the data analytical algorithm you can check all information about a specific event.
There are many advantages in using an analytical software in a CCTV application. Manufacturers such as Axis, Geovision, Pelco provides such features to their customers.
