What is IP CCTV?
Unlike the analogue CCTV camera, with an IP camera the camera transmits the video signal in a digital format to a device called a network video recorder or NVR. The camera is a network device which means it has an IP address assigned to it. It transmits its signal using an Ethernet cable; this is standard computer network cabling. With this method there is two-way data communication.
One reason IP cameras are becoming very popular compared to analogue CCTV cameras is that the IP camera transmits a very high-resolution image to the NVR compared to a lower resolution image from the CCTV analogue camera system. One advantage of an IP camera system is that you can use an existing computer network wiring infrastructure but the main reason is the higher resolution.
