IP based CCTV solutions are progressively transforming the shape of the security industry. Whilst IP CCTV video monitoring has been available for some time, its use has been restricted by the speed, cost and management limitations imposed by transmission of video images over internal networks, dial up telephone lines and ISDN lines.

The success of an IP-CCTV system depends on the ability of the network to guarantee the timely, fast and affordable delivery of high volume, robust and accurate images, the capture of evidential quality images depends on this. With improvements in compression technologies bandwidth requirements for CCTV images are decreasing.

What is IP CCTV?

IP CCTV can operate on existing wired and wireless TCP/IP computer networks or stand dedicated infill-structures.

As the CCTV system operates over a network the cameras can be accessed by anyone on the same network (with authorisation).

For standalone applications, cameras can be connected into a dedicated network disc recorder which can be accessed remotely if required. These new network HDD recorders are designed specifically for surveillance purposes.

These units provide crisp reproduction of images, versatile recording functions including multi-recording, scheduled recording, emergency recording, external timer recording and event recording functions, providing unrivalled flexible recording options.
