IP based
Video Security

In 1996, Axis Communications, the industry leader in network video, launched the world’s first network camera, the AXIS Neteye 200. From that moment on, people with an internet connection could watch what was going on from anywhere in the world.​

IP-based video security is a network-based solution that uses video cameras and a network infrastructure to capture, manage, and monitor video footage in a secure environment.


Advantages of IP-based video security:

  1. High-quality video: IP-based video security provides high-quality video footage that can be accessed remotely and in real-time. It captures video footage in high resolution, allowing for clear identification of individuals and activities.

  2. Scalability: IP-based video security can easily scale to meet the needs of the organization. Additional cameras and storage can be added without the need for significant infrastructure upgrades.

  3. Flexibility: IP-based video security offers flexibility in camera placement and configuration. Cameras can be placed in different locations and connected to the network infrastructure, providing remote accessibility and central management of the video footage.

  4. Real-time Monitoring: IP-based video security provides real-time monitoring of the video footage, allowing security personnel to quickly respond to potential security threats or incidents.

  5. Analytics and Reporting: IP-based video security provides analytics and reporting capabilities that can be used to monitor and optimize the system, detect anomalies, and generate compliance reports.

  6. Integration with other systems: IP-based video security can be easily integrated with other networked systems, such as access control, intrusion detection, and fire alarm systems. This provides a more comprehensive security solution that can be managed from a single platform.

  7. Cost-effective: IP-based video security can be a cost-effective solution for video surveillance, as it eliminates the need for physical barriers, such as walls or fences, and can cover a larger area with fewer cameras than traditional security systems.

Overall, IP-based video security offers high-quality video, scalability, flexibility, real-time monitoring, analytics and reporting, integration with other systems, and cost-effectiveness. These advantages make it an ideal solution for organizations looking to enhance their video surveillance capabilities.

While old CCTV (analog) cameras still exist, there is a growing industry trend towards replacing analog CCTV with IP surveillance systems. If you want to get many of the benefits of IP without the cost of complete conversion, you can use encoders to integrate your analog cameras into your IP network until you are ready for the full transition.

Santa Cruz Video Security LLC exclusively offers network cameras based on open IP Standards. But what are the benefits of IP network cameras?
