IP CCTV System: How It Works and What Are its Benefits

IP-based CCTV systems are said to be the security of the future. While IP CCTV has been around for about ten years, it is only in the last couple of years that this kind of technology popularized. IP CCTV systems work through transforming audio and images into data then sending these data over an Internet connection, local area network or wide area network. From across these networks, the data will be sent into a principal location, where they will be documented, viewed and handled.

IP network cameras offer high-quality images and 2-way audio. They use megapixel technology in order to achieve excellent image quality at up to three times the resolution of the best analog camera on today’s market. Analog cameras only have an optimum 400,000 pixels per frame while IP cameras record at about 1.3 million megapixels and up to ten megapixels every frame. As compared to the conventional CCTV systems, in which the quality of the recording can reduce when duplicates are created, IP CCTV systems never lose quality of an image on recording, onward forwarding or playback.

For the many high-end commercial establishments around the world nowadays, they really invest on IP CCTV installation around their premises to secure their building, people and customers from any sort of threats or thefts. This is one way to increase a business’s credibility.
