The Easy Path to Network Video: Video Encoders Bring Immediate Benefits of IP-Surveillance

The introduction of network video has revolutionized video surveillance in many ways. IP-based video surveillance systems bring many important benefits, such as vastly improved image quality, better scalability, event management, intelligent video and - in many cases - lower cost of ownership. Nevertheless, it is too early to claim that this development has rendered all analog CCTV surveillance systems obsolete and useless. The technology shift does not force security managers to immediately choose between either an IPSurveillance system or an analog video surveillance system. It is in fact possible to combine the two, thereby not only making it possible to maintain existing investments, but also reap many advantages of IP-based technology and create a future-proof platform. The solution is video encoders.
