 Take the Video Surveillance to Next Level With IP

IP or as it is known as Internet Protocol - the technology is perhaps a hot potato in the security industry today. With the power of the Internet and the Intranet IP-based cameras have taken this video surveillance to the next level.


Just like any new device or opportunity this IP technology has also undergone a very slow application. 


And that changed drastically as technology reached maturity. Shortly afterwards IP turned the corner and gained acceptance in the market.


Most of the IP-based projects we estimate represent 8-10 per cent of the companies' video business. 


This rate was very low and almost negligible when these cameras were created but shortly after the technology gained recognition there was a big increase in the sales ratio of IP cameras. Today it can be guaranteed that half of the businesses are IP based.


The first implementers of this technology were the actual innovators the companies looking for the most technologically developed equipment installed.


 And gradually more and more companies were mentioned that have made the transition to IP.


No matter the business video surveillance is critical for any type of business. Many organizations use video surveillance to protect valuable assets the safety of people or even minimize the risks associated with criminal activity.


 Earlier only larger companies could afford IP video surveillance. But now the proliferation of IP networks and the declining prices in IP camcorders are making these wonderful solutions a very attractive option for various industry sectors including educational institutions retail stores governments and any business in need of security surveillance. . One of the major trends in surveillance is the growing shift to analogue IP. 


It can be clearly stated that more than half of the businesses that use video surveillance will have IP technology today.


Well, it would not be a mistake to state that the exclusive features and quality of this technology are what have grabbed the market. Therefore there are countless reasons to support the statement that IP technology takes video surveillance to the next level.


Better content distribution

The new functionality of these technologies can provide loss protection and security personnel. IP-based video helps better distribute content. 


However, it becomes simple to send the video from several remote sites to a central operating station. It blends well with the big corporations with the distant operations across different countries or even around the world.


Get real-time virtual data

Mobile solutions can be enhanced with IP-based video. Video content can be transferred to laptops PDAs and laptops while allowing mobile workers like lovers to roam to bring the data in real-time.


However, for most potential users IP technology is perceived as very expensive. This is especially true for organizations with large earlier-generation systems based on analogue cameras in which the cost of pulling out Cat5 cables is compared to the continued use of the BNC analogue cable infrastructure already in use. 


As the IP regulations economy continues to thrive and as new capabilities available or very useful in IP environments have become mainstream it is clear that the business case for change in these environments is likely to be practical.


Flexible camera layout

When it comes to cameras these are limited in their deployment options as they must connect directly to the DVR via cable. 


But with the IP network when you want to include the longer ranges or the external coverage it can be deployed using Ethernet cables or some wireless access point. This escalates the deployment options.


Then POE (Power over Ethernet) is a feature not available in analogue video systems. Simplify the installation of video encoders/webcams reduce installation and maintenance costs and increase the reliability of IP video surveillance systems. 


POE allows IP network devices to receive power from the switch that supports POE or mid-range using the same standard cable and transmits IP data. For you, there is no need to hire a qualified electrician and install separate power lines which is a great advantage for network cameras especially in areas that are difficult to reach. 


It is important to decide on the type of camera that each surveillance area requires because different cameras have different power needs.


With IP networks it is easy to adjust the tracking coverage when needed. Whether you want to add remove or move the cameras there is no need to take any camera or equipment offline. With this flexibility, you can rest assured that there are no gaps in the entire recording.


IP-based cameras send the fixed video streams on the corporate network. It uses video analysis to monitor each camera and transmits it during alarm mode only. 


The surgeries that were both expensive and unreliable seem to appear from both ends very clearly.


Schools colleges and universities have invested very heavily in network infrastructure. The administrative/organizational facilities with the highest number of cameras are expected to join the move towards IP. And the big enterprise systems especially in multinational corporations are expected to make a fundamental change.


 It is most convenient for professionals or loss prevention managers in the big stores to share the video between different companies and stores. 


And many transportation sites like train stations airports and ports with large external volumes are expected to move rapidly to IP-based systems including the current generation of video analysis for human protection.


Both the present and the future of video surveillance and analysis are greatly expanding. 


Since the largest cities corporations and organizations have already developed the monitoring platforms they will surely set an example for the integration of small organizations and companies and will help increase the network of connected businesses through monitoring and analysis to retain employees consumers students. Or in short, the whole population is safe.
