In its truest form, a CCTV camera is an Analog video camera that transmits signals via coaxial cable to a single central location for monitoring, recording, and video analysis. Until recently most cameras have been of the analogue type, producing good quality images at an affordable price. Network cameras have now developed to a high performance capability that allows them to compete with or even exceed the performance of traditional analogue CCTV cameras. An IP camera captures and sends video footage over an IP network, allowing users to view, record, store and manage their video surveillance images either locally or remotely over the network infrastructure. It's no secret that the future of video surveillance is in IP-based solutions; but that doesn't mean you need to throw out your existing analog cameras as you make the transition. Hybrid DVRs and video encoders allow you to build a future-proof IP surveillance network while retaining the analog security cameras you already have on hand.
