IP Surveillance is used to provide access to video at any time from any network location, allowing remote monitoring, investigation, and incident response by remote physical security staff or law enforcement personnel.
The digital, network IP surveillance system offers a lot of benefits and advanced functionalities that cannot be provided by an analog video surveillance system. IP Surveillance is considered advantagious due to its superior image quality, remote accessibility, distributed intelligent video capabilities, easy installation and integration, and better scalability, flexibility and cost-effectiveness.
Image quality is considered one of the most important features of any camera. Superior image quality enables the user to closely follow details and changes in images, to be able to react better and make faster decisions to more effectively protect people and property.
In a fully digital IP surveillance system, images from a network camera are digitized once and they stay digital with no unnecessary conversions and no image degradation due to distance traveled over a network. In addition, digital images can be more easily stored and retrieved than in cases where analog systems are used.
