cctv surveillance and cctv camera FAQ

What range of CCTV surveillance cameras does Samsung Communications Centre stock?

Samsung Communications Centre provides a comprehensive range of digital and IP CCTV camera and security surveillance systems for both analogue CCTV Cameras and IP network based CCTV Systems that have resulted in their deployment in major international airports, schools, organisations, government projects and industrial and commercial facilities through to small retailers and homes throughout Australia.

What is an Analogue Security System?

An analogue security system begins with a CCD image sensor and then converts the images into a digital form for processing. Before the security system can transmit the videos, it needs to convert back in an analogue form, so analogue devices such as video recorder and monitor, can receive the videos.

What is an IP Security System?

An IP security system broadcasts their video as a digital stream over an IP network such as a WAN, LAN, Internet or Intranet. IP cameras combine the capabilities of cameras and some PC functionalities. So they don’t require a direct connection to a PC to operate. So they can be placed anywhere within a network.

What are the Major Differences between CCTV Surveillance Cameras?

1.Video Quality

IP cameras excel in capturing high definition, megapixel images. The maximum amount of pixels that can be created by analogue security cameras is 0.4 megapixels, and 10 megapixel by IP cameras. Just like pictures taken with digital cameras, the more pixel the better image quality.

2.Installation

Analogue security cameras are generally easier to install at a site owing to the fact that they require no configuration or technical skills and network knowledge, while IP security cameras require some networking skills for small installations and more technical skills for enterprise size installations.

3.Cost

IP security cameras are generally more costly than analogue security cameras. One of the main reasons of the increased cost is that IP security cameras have higher number of megapixels. It is important to note that an increased number of megapixels means that the security camera can cover a larger monitoring area and can also take the place of several analogue cameras, therefore making the IP security camera more cost-effective.
