More businesses in all industries are upgrading to IP surveillance platforms for reasons like:
Robust Search Capabilities
Because video footage is stored and archived digitally, recording can be accessed at a moment’s notice. In the event of an incident, your organization will be able to pull precise video footage based on an exact time and date without having to review hours of tape to find what you’re looking for.
An IP surveillance platform enables your team to store your footage via a cloud service to allow virtually unlimited storage capacity. That means you can save weeks, months, and even years worth of footage without requiring additional storage space at your facility. With IP cameras, your cameras can record as much as you want for as long as you want without storage space restricting your goals. With the ability to compress video footage, you can also optimize video footage for long-term, cost-effective storage. Driven by the capabilities of the cloud, your team can also review footage anywhere, anytime as long as they have a network connection
Improved Image Quality
Digital archival capabilities deliver higher quality footage when compared to what’s possible with analog cameras. With scalable resolutions ranging from 4k and 1080p to lower resolutions, an IP surveillance platform allows you to customize video quality based on your unique needs. At the same time, digital video quality does not degrade when stored for extended periods of time as with film.
Simultaneous Recording and Playback
While traditional CCTV camera systems make it difficult to record video footage while also reviewing footage, an IP surveillance system makes this a problem of the past. With IP surveillance, you can watch recorded footage while continuing to record in real-time, so you never have to worry about missing anything.
With CCTV, there’s always the risk of criminals compromising on-site video cameras and video recorders to destroy any evidence of illicit activities. With the off-site storage capabilities offered by IP surveillance, video is stored at a remote data center, so criminals cannot possibly destroy data. Even if they destroy the cameras, the footage will still be recorded to preserve evidence, so law enforcement can identify suspects.
