IP (Internet Protocol) – leading the charge for CCTV

ESP has the cctv system to suit all applications and budgets. Neil Baldwin, Managing Director, looks at the options that contractors should be considering including the latest ip systems...

Already offering one of the most comprehensive collections of premium quality, competitively priced CCTV systems for the domestic market with its 4MP range, ESP has now developed a brand new IP (Internet Protocol) CCTV range that will satisfy the growing demand from wholesale customers and contractors and will meet the needs of a changing market place which is moving from analogue to digital (IP).

The main difference between analogue CCTV and digital (IP) CCTV is the method by which video is recorded and delivered. Analogue cameras record images and then send the signal over a coaxial cable to a DVR (Digital Video Recorder). The DVR converts the video from analogue to digital signals, compresses the file, and stores it on a hard drive. Monitors need to be hooked up to the DVR to view the video, or the DVR can be connected to a router and modem to broadcast it over the internet through an internal network. Digital security cameras on IP-based CCTV systems, on the other hand, record the images digitally to begin with.

Then, they can receive and send data over a computer network rather than going through a DVR first. The move from analogue to IP CCTV systems gives installers the opportunity to sell an upgrade to their clients, to provide a more reliable security solution that offers superior benefits.

ESP’s new IP POE CCTV range is designed to offer superior, reliable and straightforward installation solutions for a range of applications from domestic through to larger and more complex commercial projects. The range features POE (Power- Over-Ethernet) which enables the camera and power feed to be wired in Cat5e cable up to 100 metres without the need for additional power, which makes installation much more convenient. A single Ethernet cable provides both the power and the HD digital feed, with just one cable per camera and multiple cameras can be installed anywhere on the network that the NVR is connected do.

Processing power, an abundance of features, versatility and high resolution IP CCTV all combine to make this the superior choice over traditional analogue systems.

There are two distinct IP ranges available – the REKOR IP 2 Megapixel range which has been tailored for the domestic market, and the HDView IP 5 Megapixel range which is aimed at larger applications with a wide choice of NVR and camera selection.

All NVRs are packed with features, such as remote monitoring via the ESP IPView App, H265 compression, motion record activation and they are supplied with quality surveillance hard drives for peace of mind.
