IP (Network) Digital Video Recording System
IP (Network) DVR system
IP cameras or network ip cameras stream live video via digital packets across an internet protocol network such as a LAN (Local Area Network) or the Internet.
Number of channels: 1 to as many as the network bandwidth can handle.
The benefit of network cameras, is that they reside on IP networks; the video streams can then be accessed and stored remotely. This enables users to view and/or manage the IP cam using a standard web browser or video management software from different locations, giving businesses increased flexibility.
Recommended Application Example:
Any site that already has a network in place (and networking cable already run) is a great opportunity to use network cameras. In large sites such as office buildings and schools you can save a lot of money by not having to run CCTV cable in addition to networking cable. Another kind of application that lends itself well to using network cameras is when remote viewing is essential - since network cameras provide remote connectivity by design.
