Frequently Asked Questions

Video Surveillance System – Q&A

We’re going to explain how each network recorder works to help you decide:

Analog camera systems send the video stream via coaxial cabling to a DVR unit that processes and records it. These traditional CCTV cameras are now somewhat outdated, and the format demands significantly larger storage drives for video retention.

IP camera systems are different; they use a network-based solution. Not only do they offer higher definition recordings, but they compress files to minimize storage requirements. Before the security camera sends the video signal through the network, it encodes the signal. Then, the data is stored on a local network-based NVR unit.

While both systems record live video, they process data in two different ways. DVR systems (digital video recorders) use internal capture cards to process the raw video stream.

NVR systems (network video recorders) receive compressed data that’s been encoded by an IP camera system. The NVR acts as a network storage device for playback and hosting.

Transition from analog cameras to IP cameras using a Hybrid NVR. You can keep using your older cameras as you add new ones to lower your upfront costs.
