10 Ways to Smoothen IP Video Transmission
Megapixel cameras are supposed to help people see better, react faster, but oftentimes limited network resources prevent them from working at their full capacity or capability. Camera manufacturers have devised a number of ways to cope with this harsh reality, enabling their cameras to stream smarter and deliver full HD footage.
Future of Access Control (Sponsored)
In the past, access control has been a “fit and forget” system that can last in excess of 15 years. However, according to access control manufacturer TDSi, there are some exciting innovations and trends emerging in the industry that are making security managers re-evaluate what they have and how it can be improved. These advances are penetrating every aspect of access control from controllers a
World's First Outdoor Gigapixel Webcam
The world's first automated and outdoor gigapixel webcam, EarthCam's GigapixelCam, is now available to help project teams monitor jobsites and document progress with greater scope and precise detail. Using propriety technology and software, the revolutionary system has a unique robotic camera with a custom lens that surgically pans a jobsite at defined intervals, capturing multiple high resolut
Selecting Outdoor IP Cams
CCTV surveillance cameras are now a common sight in cities around the world, with cameras used at major intersections to catch speeders and would-be runners of red lights. However, as many drivers have learned, outdoor cameras have a high failure rate, and consequently only a fraction of the cameras installed are actually operational.
Because of the high failure rate, maintaining
IP-Based Storage for Mission-Critical Applications
Network video is the leading driver of the growth in the video surveillance security market. It's not only altering the fundamental infrastructure of security systems, but it is also spurring innovation in tangential area, such as marketing, behavioral analytics and traffic management. Servers, storage and workstation technologies are therefore key components of an IP-based physical security so
Resolving Cloud Surveillance Challenges
Software is fairly consistent, but hardware comes in all shapes and sizes. An open platform is required for VSaaS IP connectivity, but network video has yet to be plug-and-play. "IP video technology is a ‘mixed bag' in this regard: the negatives are the incompatible standards of IP video, but the benefits include the ability to view over the Internet on a wide range of off-the-shelf – and in many
