Within the security products industry, IP-based Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) is making gains on the analog market. One key advantage of IP-based CCTV is the ability to use network infrastructure, providing adequate bandwidth and availability of switching and routing, rather than coaxial cabling.
The latest IP Video technology allows for better image quality and clarity and reduce the need for expensive, damage prone. pan, tilt, zoom (PTZ) cameras. Network based systems allow for centralized viewing and storage of video files reducing overall hardware foot print and points of failure.
