IP Video Cameras

IP cameras are Closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras that use Internet Protocol to transmit image data and control signals over a Fast Ethernet link. As such, IP cameras are also commonly referred to as network cameras. IP cameras are primarily used for surveillance in the same manner as analog closed-circuit television. A number of IP cameras are normally deployed together with a digital video recorder (DVR) or a network video recorder (NVR) to form a video surveillance system.
Cost advantages

Reduced system cost and added functionality due to general-purpose IP networking equipment infrastructure.
Lower cost of cabling in large installations (CAT5e instead of RG-59 coaxial cable).
Reduced space requirements in large (many camera) CCTV setups because video switching and routing is done via computer and does not need physically large and expensive video matrix switchers.

Extensible network infrastructure
Convergence onto new or existing IP cabling infrastructure, including sites with multiple buildings.
Ability to use Power over Ethernet allowing for one cable to handle power and data.
Capability for deploying with a wireless bridge.
Ability to use legacy coaxial cables with appropriate converters.
Ability to use fiber optic links with appropriate twisted-pair to fiber converters.
Transmission of commands for PTZ (pan, tilt, zoom) cameras via a single network cable.
Simple to add one camera at a time to the system.

360 Degree Cameras

The primary components of the hemispheric camera include a fisheye lens, a high-resolution image sensor and image correction software that is integrated into the camera. Using an ultra-wide angle fisheye lens, the camera captures a 360° hemispheric image of the room and projects it onto a high-resolution image sensor.

When ceiling mounted, the image area of the hemispheric camera covers the entire room. The image in the hemisphere is convex, particularly near the image borders. These image sections are corrected for the viewer by the integrated distortion correction software, allowing a view of the scene from the usual perspective. The virtual PTZ feature allows you to enlarge or move image sections within the hemisphere, just like a PTZ camera yet, with Ip Cameras, this is achieved with no moving parts.

VoIP Functionality

Most IP Cameras support the SIP protocol and enable the use of each cameras to be programed as an extension on a pbx. Cameras from Mobotix offer complete 2 way duplex voice with their integrated microphones and speakers. This works to eliminate the redundancy of having a CCTV system and a paging system and combines it into a single package
