Thanks to Internet related technological advancements including 3G and 4G cellular phones, there are several benefits of IP (Internet Protocol) video systems. In this article we’ll explain what an IP video system is, how it works, and the benefits of using this method of digital video security and surveillance.
What is it?
Before we talk about how it works or the benefits of IP video systems, we need to define what it is. Most digital video systems transmit their digital video and sound using a coaxial cable usually RG59. However an IP video system uses the Internet as the primary source for networking. IP video systems normally come with their own web server technology so that they may be plugged in to CAT5E Ethernet cable and using a broadband cable connection can immediately begin broadcasting over the Internet.
