Video Surveillance Technology

From HD and megapixel resolution to wireless systems, the world of video surveillance technology is growing and changing every day. This gives you the option to build flexible and custom surveillance systems designed for your site’s unique security needs.
Camera options include outdoor and vandal-proof housings to protect cameras, night vision or thermal cameras for recording at night, and PTZ cameras to monitor large areas. In addition, you have many software options to record, monitor, and analyze your surveillance videos so you can stay on top of any accidents, thefts, or suspicious activity.

IP cameras

IP surveillance camera systems rely on a megapixel resolution to provide higher-quality images than CCTV cameras, which can be important when trying to decipher individuals or items in surveillance recordings. The most common megapixel resolutions are 1MP and 2 MP. There are also megapixel security cameras available with pixel counts over 20MP. The higher the megapixels, the higher the resolution of the video will be. Megapixel resolution is not used with analog CCTV security cameras.
Depending on your specific surveillance camera needs, the resolution on the megapixel IP cameras you use can be critical. With common 1MP and 2MP cameras, also available as 720P and 1080P cameras, a full frame rate of 30 Frames Per Second is standard. However, for very high megapixel camera counts (5MP and higher) the user must plan for lower frames per second and an increase in network usage because of the high bandwidth which is required to transmit information to the camera. For this reason, it is important to have a clear understanding of what resolution you need on a megapixel IP camera used in your surveillance system.

HD Analog cameras

An HD analog camera is a special type of analog, or CCTV, security camera that can record surveillance video in 720p high definition (HD). While previously only a feature available on IP cameras, these HD analog cameras are ideal for surveillance systems that need HD quality for video evidence but may not need more advanced features of IP video. To incorporate new HD analog cameras into an existing CCTV system, you will need to use an HD DVR capable of handling the HD video files.
Traditional analog cameras measure resolution by the number of horizontal lines, called TVL. A higher the number of lines in an image means better resolution (by contrast, IP cameras measure resolution in pixels).
The new HD analog technology allows you to record megapixel resolution video using analog components, resulting in 720p HD resolution from an analog system. These analog cameras continue to use standard coax cabling, DVRs, and can be easily mixed into your existing system. Please note, however, that you will need an HD DVR.

What are NVRs and DVRs?

NVRs (network video recorder) and DVRs (digital video recorder) are what you use to manage, view, and store surveillance videos. Available with a variety of software and hard drive sizes, NVRs and DVRs make it easy to save and review videos. Which one you need, and how it works, depends on having CCTV or IP surveillance cameras.

How NVRs and DVRs Work?

NVRs and DVRs have the same job of saving and storing surveillance videos, but they are designed to work with different types of cameras. Both NVRs and DVRs come in form factors—stand alone appliance, a tower server, or a rackmount server.
DVRs are used in CCTV, or analog, surveillance systems. Older systems would record video directly to tapes using a VCR; modern systems use DVRs to convert video files into digital formats, allowing you to store more videos. DVRs also give you the convenience of remote access, common on newer IP cameras and NVRs.
If you have IP cameras, you’ll want a NVR instead. These recording devices use the local network to send and receive data, and are ideal for remotely monitoring your surveillance system from your computer, smart phone, or tablet. Because IP cameras are the cutting edge of surveillance technology, including a NVR in your system allows you to include new cameras with more advanced features. While most IP cameras and NVRs are compatible, you should always check with your surveillance system integrator to ensure all your products will work together properly.
If your surveillance system has a mixture of CCTV and IP cameras, you can use specialized video encoders that allow your CCTV cameras to be connected to an NVR.

Software Features & Technology

The video management software is an essential part of any surveillance system. VMS software allows you to manage camera and recording settings, view multiple camera feeds, and set alerts for tampering and motion detection.
Video management software can also review and analyze your recorded video, giving you important information. These analytics can range from retail software that tracks customer movements to better design stores to motion detection searches for suspicious people who came on your property during the night.

Advanced Software Features

Learn about the software features and applications that help make your system run smoother. These include ways to quickly search through the recorded files you have to save time, and what types of software will work well with other cameras and NVRs.
