The question came up, "What's the difference between analog and IP cameras? I've been hearing a lot about them lately. What makes them better than the older ones I installed in my shop more than 20 years ago?"
In that special ESC article we discussed the technical differences between the two. Although that's probably good for some of our more technically oriented readers and clients, it may not be enough for others. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, and so, in this short article, I'd like to show you the difference between them.
There are three different videos. I suggest that you watch each of them. The first two offer a visual comparison between analog and IP so you can actually see the difference where the third is more of a discussion about the differences. After the third, I'll say a few additional words and then we'll close.
1080P IP Cameras vs Analog CCTV Security Cameras
Analog vs IP CCTV Camera System - Analog vs Network Camera
Analog vs IP Cameras - Video Surveillance Systems
What you saw in the first two videos should convince you that there is a huge difference between the two technologies. The third went into some of the additional benefits derived from IP cameras.
If you are interested in knowing more, or you have an application where you believe IP would be better than analog, or if you have analog and you want to replace them with IP models, please contact me at your convenience. I'm only a phone call away! Call today: 614-754-1393!
Have a great Monday!!
