Is your business thinking about upgrading from an analog-based security camera system to a digital IP system? There is a wide variety of advantages IP cameras have over analog when considering an upgrade.
The question: what are the advantages that IP camera specifications have over analog? The answer: almost everything.
Businesses must consider installation of IP cameras at their facilities any time when you must capture any kind of high-detail. This might include the ability to recognize someone’s face, the capacity to zoom and capture a license plate number, or any other sensitive location where multiple people or objects must be analyzed. The fact of the matter is: analog cameras just can’t get the job done anymore. And the proof is all in the video.
Here (above) we see a full-sized comparison; this is an image of both an IP and analog video, respectively, at full resolution.
So you’ve decided by now that it’s time to upgrade to an IP-based surveillance system, but now there is a new problem: most businesses are wired via a coax cable, which is standard for analog camera systems. However, IP security cameras must use CAT 5 (or CAT 6) cabling and wiring a completely new system throughout a facility is not going to be cheap; the bigger the facility the more expensive and complicated the process could be.
The solution: Ethernet over Coax (EoC) transmission technology. By utilizing the preexisting coax cable, the EoC solution provides an easy solution: quick installation with minimal disruption to an organization’s operations. This means you won’t have to run (or re-run) cabling throughout your entire facility, which preserves the integrity of the building while greatly reducing installation cost. With the ability to connect and power up to 4 IP cameras over a single CCTV Network Coax Cable, this technology is simply a must-have if you are trying to properly secure all angles of your facility.
The fact of the matter: if you want the highest resolution video available it is time to upgrade to an IP-based surveillance camera system, and often the best option would be through an Ethernet over Coax system.
