IP cameras offer the highest resolutions, the most flexible wiring topology, the most choices in recording software, the abiility to record to onboard SD media (and play back), the ability to view and configure the camera remotely over the internet,
have inputs for remote sensors and outputs to turn on/off remote devices such as lights, the abiility to email or ftp snapshots of events, the ability to live-stream, and the list goes on... In fact, since IP cameras
are basically mini embedded computers, it's possible to install a single IP camera without an external DVR that does everything you would need. The primary limitation being days of storage due to the capacity of the SD card installed.
HD-TVI, HD-CVI, HD-SDI, are all High Definition analog platforms with at least 1080p resolutions. We prefer TVI over the proprietary CVI and the persnickety SDI platforms, but we can and do
provide service all CCTV system types.
TVI will soon offer 5 megapixel resolutions with 4K not too far behind.
HD-Analog cameras cost less than IP mostly for the fact that they are "dumb" cameras. All they do is transmit video to the DVR which has to do all the heavy lifting with regards to compressing
the stream for storage and analyzing the video for motion detection.
In many cases, we specify a "hybrid" system capable of recording both TVI and IP cameras on the same DVR. This allows you to take advantage of any existing coax cable you may have and the cost savings of TVI.
At the same time, IP cameras can be used in situations or locations that warrant them. It's the best of both worlds.
There are still a great many Standard Definition Analog systems in service today.
Chances are you made a sizeable investment when you originally purchased your system. We can maintain or even expand your legacy system until your ready to upgrade to HD.
