IP (Internet Protocol) surveillance is mainly a networked and digitized version of CCTV (Closed circuit television). An IP camera is used in the surveillance system for recording video footage and then the content is distributed over an IP network.

There are several benefits of digitization as compared to the traditional analog CCTV. It not only offers improved search capabilities and is easy to use but also offers high quality images and no degradation of content over time. The user is able to record and play at the same time and also compress the content for improved storage.

When the digital CCTV comes with networking capability, it also offers various benefits. The ability for remote viewing and control is improved. Anyone on the network can easily see the video from any camera that is connected to the network. With the help of IP storage, it becomes easy to store data in any location. Also, there is greater ease as far as distribution of content is concerned. For instance, if there is an image of a crime suspect, it can be immediately distributed to the concerned officials. It also offers the ability to connect to communication systems, including emails so that it becomes easy to send alerts automatically.

 The trend of replacing analog CCTV with IP surveillance has grown over the years. As mentioned-above, IP-ready cameras can easily transmit visual information to the internet. If you are using this camera, you can easily check the result through your mobile device, your laptop or any other device connected to the internet. With this feature, remote surveillance has become easier.

Compared to the analog CCTV camera, IP (Internet Protocol) surveillance includes easier installation as well. It also offers better quality images and you can use file compression for making the surveillance system cost-efficient. With IP surveillance, you can also see how far video and image security has come from the old analog days. Previously, security managers had to use VHS tapes for storing images as far as city surveillance is concerned. They also had to deal with all the challenges that came along with old systems.

In terms of picture quality, even the best analog camera cannot compare to the IP camera. At best, analog cameras can manage to capture the equivalent of less than half a megapixel. In IP cameras, a wider field of view can be captured. One IP camera can do the job of at least three to four of old school cameras. IP cameras are way better in terms of scalability and flexibility as compared to analog ones.

Different types of IP cameras:

When buying an IP camera, you can get a wide variety to choose from:

There is a box camera which is useful when you need surveillance for a small area. 

• Dome camera in which the lens can be manually pointed to the desired direction.

• Bullet camera with a better range and zoom capability.

• PTZ camera, the best of surveillance cameras.
