Ethernet Expands Existing Infrastructure
Ethernet is compatible with all transmission data, thus allowing easy integration of separate devices into a single system. It maximizes existing cabling infrastructure to save costs.
Wired Up With Transmission
With convergence heating up, transmission plays a crucial role in an integrated security solution. There are many options to choose from, depending on the devices used and the environment they operate in.
Challenging the Claims of Higher Resolution
Manufacturers have been promoting surveillance cameras with resolution specifications higher than 540 horizontal TVLs, implying that customers will benefit from enhanced resolution. However, even if a camera can pass a test that validates a resolution specification over 540 horizontal TVLs, the end user is not going to get more than 540 lines out of a typical installation because of system limitat
