Technological advancements have gifted us with several options when it comes to choosing the best type of CCTV systems for an industry or business. CCTV systems have become a crucial part of security systems and it is imperative to choose the best system to meet all your requirements.
Types of CCTV Systems
The best system for your business will depend on factors such as the surveillance requirements, budget, and environmental conditions. The most common types of CCTV systems are:
Analog CCTV Systems
These are the traditional CCTV systems that use coaxial cables to transmit video signals from cameras to monitors and recording devices. Analog cameras typically have lower resolution and limited features compared to newer digital systems. However, these systems are generally more cost effective, have a relatively easier installation process, require lower bandwidth, have a wide compatibility with other systems and are durable.
Digital CCTV Systems
These systems use digital cameras that capture and transmit high-quality video signals over Ethernet cables or wireless networks. Digital systems are more versatile and offer features such as remote access, motion detection, and advanced analytics.
These are digital systems that use Internet Protocol (IP) technology to transmit video signals over networks. IP cameras are connected to a network video recorder (NVR) which manages and stores the video footage. IP systems offer higher resolution, better image quality, and more advanced features compared to analog systems.
Wireless CCTV Systems
These systems use wireless technology to transmit video signals from cameras to monitors and recording devices. Wireless systems are ideal for situations where it is difficult or impossible to run cables, such as in temporary installations or remote locations.
HD CCTV Systems
These are digital systems that offer high-definition (HD) video resolution. HD cameras provide clearer and more detailed images than traditional analog systems, making them ideal for applications where image quality is critical.
Thermal Imaging CCTV Systems
These systems use thermal imaging cameras that detect heat signatures to create images. Thermal cameras are ideal for low-light or no-light environments, and can be used to detect intruders or monitor equipment that generates heat.
Making the right choice with the correct equipment, in compliance with industry regulations can be a challenging task. The team at Vivo Asia specializes in the installation and supply of Telecom, IT and ELV systems, especially for harsh and hazardous environments.
We not only carry out site surveys and choose the best type of CCTV cameras and other equipment, but we also handle the installation process, CCTV coverage studies, testing and periodic maintenance.
