Analog Vs. IP - Which is Best for You?

Long gone are the days of blurry surveillance camera footage. Today’s video surveillance technology is able to capture high-resolution images that can capture minute details from any distance and in any lighting. Thanks to the latest digital IP camera technology, a single camera can go beyond 4K resolution of an analog camera and even do the work of multiple cameras with a single lens. If you already have an analog system in place, Legacy analog camera wiring can be reused with HD over analog cameras, allowing you to upgrade your system without the high cost of updating your wiring. To learn more about which technology is better for you - Analog or IP - read on below.

What is a CCTV

What is a CCTV Surveillance System?

A CCTV system functions with strategically-placed security cameras and human monitoring of the cameras’ video feeds on an internal system of monitors. Video feeds may also be recorded on a separate digital video recorder, or DVR. If the DVR is connected to the internet, remote viewing of video footage may also be available. CCTV is an older system that has developed and modernized, adding new features throughout the years.

What are IP Cameras?

Videos are stored digitally using a network video recorder, or NVR, rather than a physical DVR. Additionally, IP cameras are easy to install and have flexible expansion capabilities in terms of connecting additional cameras, other systems, and storage applications. IP cameras can be used in conjunction with CCTV systems to cover blind spots or have cameras where they are less likely to be seen and discovered.
