IP CCTV cameras capture video image, compress and transmit in digital format over the network. The recorder is programmed with IP addresses to receive these streams and record to a NVR (network video recorder).
With HD CCTV, each camera has to be connected directly to the recorder and the recorder is responsible for collating picture information, compression and storage. These systems can be simpler and easier to manage, but don’t always work for the scope of a project or budget.
IP CCTV works better for people with network knowledge or already have structured cabling in place. Using existing cabling can be a real cost saver - WiFi can link multiple buildings. POE cabling can make lengthy cabling far more simplified.
Both HD and IP can be accessed over the network, mobile devices and tablets.
