IP Cameras are quickly becoming the fastest growing solution in Security Camera Surveillance.  IP cameras are Closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras that use Internet Protocol to transmit image data and control signals over a Fast Ethernet link. As such, IP cameras are also commonly referred to as network cameras. IP cameras are primarily used for surveillance in the same manner as analog closed-circuit television. A number of IP cameras are normally deployed together with a digital video recorder (DVR) or a network video recorder (NVR) to form a video surveillance system.

Cost advantages

  • Reduced system cost and added functionality due to general-purpose IP networking equipment infrastructure.
  • Lower cost of cabling in large installations (CAT5e instead of RG-59 coaxial cable).
  • Reduced space requirements in large (many camera) CCTV setups because video switching and routing is done via computer and does not need physically large and expensive video matrix switchers.

Flexible image format

  • Support for a variety of image resolutions including both standard analog CCTV resolutions (CIF, NTSC, PAL, and SECAM) and megapixel resolutions.
  • Capability for digital zoom of high-resolution megapixel images.
  • Progressive scan (versus interlaced scanning). Note that not all IP cameras operate in progressive scan mode. Progressive scan allows still images to be removed in better quality from a video feed. This is particularly true for a fast moving target, in which case interlaced scanning will introduce shutter-blind artifacts.
  • Ability to select specific frame rates and resolution for each camera in a system.
  • No additional video encoder hardware is required to convert analog video signals into digital data for recording onto hard drives.
  • Choice of video compression codec such as Motion JPEG, MPEG-4 Part 2, or H.264.

Greater functionality

  • Wireless allows the camera to be placed just about anywhere.
  • No limit on resolution inherent in standard analog video formats. Megapixel cameras can far exceed image detail from conventional CCTV cameras.
  • On-camera automated alerting via email or file transfer in response to video motion detection or dry-contact alarms.
  • Support for different streaming media and compression formats to relieve transmission bandwidth and data storage requirements.
  • Support for new embedded intelligent video motion detection (video analytics) with shape recognition and counting applied to objects, people, and vehicles.
  • Integration of video surveillance with other systems and functions such as access control, alarm systems, building management, traffic management, etc.
  • Future-proof installations with field-upgradeable products due to the ability to upgrade camera firmware over the network.
