Smart 1080p Wireless IP Camera (Ambarella S2L + Sony IMX322)
Today, I plan to write a test report for our 8 channel PoE network video recorder, because this product is so amazing. After I make sure everything is ready, then connect the NVR to the LCD monitor. After turn on both devices, LCD monitor becomes total darkness after shows a boot picture. Suddenly, I realize that our network video recorders only support Full HD 1080p monitor, the traditional LCD monitor only supports maximum resolution 1440x900 (H:56KHz, V:60KHz). Therefore, I can't continue testing this NVR.
Until now, I still feel so regretful that I didn't buy a LCD monitor supports Full HD 1080p resolution. So, you may realize the importance of getting right resolution especially for video equipment. IP surveillance system is rapidly replacing the traditional analog video surveillance system, despite many HD-over-coaxial technologies have been launched into market. This is an inevitable trend. Furthermore, Full HD 1080p seems become current standard in today's digital video surveillance industry, while 4K is gradually becoming the standard resolution/format in TV broadcasting & Cinema industries.
Undoubtedly, 720p is today's popular resolution, you can find all security manufacturers produce and sell 720p (1.0 megapixel) resolution network cameras, which are cost-effective product for residential security. But some companies want to get ahead, they produce and launch full HD IP camera that delivers 1080p resolution. These manufacturers including Hikvision, Dahua, Samsung, Dropcam (NEST) and more.
