Guide for selection IP Cameras, analog or digital?

IP Camera Introduction

Internet Protocol (IP) camera mainly is composed of a lens, an image sensor (typically CMOS image sensor) and an image processor, and a H.264 video compression SoC (System on Chip) and an Ethernet chip that allow camera to connect to network for video broadcasting.

When light passes through the lens to the sensor, the image sensor will convert it to digital signals then processed by a built-in image signal processor (ISP). Instantly, the signal will be compressed with H.264 format by a multimedia SoC to minimize the file size for optimal transmission. Finally, the video images are sent through the network to back-end device for viewing or recording.

HDCVI vs HD-SDI, HDCVI camera vs IP camera

HDCVI is based on coaxial cable to transmit composite video signal brand-new technology, adopting analog signal modulation technology, and progressive scan CMOS image sensor to deliver 1280H (1280x720) and 1920H (1920x1080) high definition video signal. HD-CVI technology can output megapixel resolution, including 1280H@25fps, 1280H@30fps, 1280H@50fps, 1280H@60fps, 1920H@25fps, 1920H@30fps six formats. Adopting the HDCVI technology can achieve uncompressed, lossless, without delay video transmission between HDCVI camera and HDCVI DVR. More over, HDCVI can transmit audio and control signal, up to 500 meters long range transmission distance.
