Pros and cons of IP CCTV cameras



We can say that a lens and a mini-computer are combined in an IP-surveillance camera. The small body contains a central processing unit, a matrix, a network interface, a lens, a processing and compression processor. The data from the Jasa Pasang CCTV is sent to the monitor in digital format. Briefly, the principle of operation of the device can be indicated by the following diagram:

    The lens catches the image on the matrix.
    The color on the matrix is converted into an electrical signal.
    It is transmitted to the processor, where color, brightness and other parameters are adjusted.
    The processed video stream goes to the compressor, where it is compressed to the final version, which is then broadcast to the network through the controller.

An IP video camera has its own IP address and is capable of transmitting a video stream not only to a recorder, but also to a laptop, to cloud storage. Data transmission can be organized by wire or wireless.

One of the key differences between IP devices is the extensive list of additional unique features. The user can remotely control the direction of the lens, set up automatic zoom, track a moving object, send event notification to a smartphone or email. This is just a small list of possible options.

Most users who choose IP video cameras make this decision because of the wide range of built-in hardware and digital image processing functions, as well as the availability of video analytics. She is able to recognize movements and faces, left things, analyze changes in the frame, license plates, suspicious behavior and much more. Such solutions are rarely used in residential buildings. Video analytics is widely used in order to improve security in places of mass presence of people and at commercial facilities of a special regime. Organization of a full-fledged IP video surveillance system over a large area will require significant financial costs. At the same time, many functions will remain unclaimed among ordinary users.
