Video surveillance is a powerful, highly effective, and affordable means of adding a layer of protection and security for residential and commercial establishments. Technological innovations over the years have made video surveillance systems and solutions a lot easier to operate, customize, and scale according to the needs of the user. Security camera surveillance systems from the earlier days employed analog technology. This includes closed circuit television and video recording directly on video tapes. This method, however, was unable to transmit real time, live information, limiting its use to later viewing and reviewing when incidents occur. It, therefore, did little to prevent security breaches, although it did offer a strong deterrent against wrongdoers while also helping capture them after the fact.
This limitation pushed technology manufacturers to create more advanced solutions that allow users to get practical information immediately, such as for monitoring storefronts and homes remotely and on an on-going basis. Digitalization improved video surveillance by leans and bounds in the 1990s, replacing CCTVs that did not offer great picture quality and required manual transfer and changing of tapes with more efficient charged coupled devices (CCD) technology and local area networks (LAN), along with internet correspondence. These changes resulted in clearer, crisper images that can easily be monitored and tracked. Additionally, surveillance images were made to be easily transmitted live and in real time over the web or within secure private networks. This created an ideal scenario for law enforcement. Digital video surveillance also made it easier for users to manipulate images, add enhancements, and locate specific events as needed.
IP-based video surveillance takes advantage of the advanced capabilities of digital cameras, which quickly views the scenes ahead and records what it sees for convenient broadcasting through a Local Area Network. The digital information of the video images captured are sent to the web or a private computer server where information is then managed. Different types of software are available to enable easy navigation and manipulation of video data so you can show, record, and send images across networks and all over the world at your convenience.
Various upgrades and additions can also be applied and used to enhance video surveillance software packages and include features like greater image manipulation, flagging, and other customized security features to address your specific needs. In IP-based security surveillance, CCD cameras send packets of video information rapidly through digitized signal, making it a more suitable solution in this day and age of rapid information exchange.
