Development of network technologies has created a new approach to video surveillance systems issue. In IP systems all cameras and recorders operate as independent network devices, combined under one common subnetwork. This kind of architecture gives us an endless possibilities of system expansion, limited only by the bandwidth of network connection and by capabilities of devices themselves, or their Ethernet cards.
FLEXIBLE ADJUSTMENT OF CAMERA RESOLUTION TO INSTALLATION – up to 8 Mpx
The biggest advantage of IP technology in video surveillance is superb image quality. The signal is transmitted in digital form, thus there are no restrictions known from analog systems. Due to wide offer of IP cameras it is possible to pick the most appropriate camera resolution to the location, size and type of installation. There are models with even 8 Mpx resolution available in NOVUS offer.
UNLIMITED NUMBER OF SYSTEM ELEMENTS
The system can be expanded by new camera points, regardless of the number of inputs available in a particular recorder (or server). The only limitations are the network bandwidth and recorder (or server) performance.
MANAGEMENT AND MONITORING FROM ANY LOCATION
Remote access via web browser into entire system and each camera separately using computer network.
ALL IN ONE CABLE
In the vast majority of IP cameras power supply can be implemented normally (via 12 VDC power supplies or 230/24 VAC transformers), as well as using PoE power supply standard. PoE (Power over Ethernet) enables signal and power supply transmission to the camera via one twisted-pair cable. This reduces costs of system building – there are less wires in use, and there’s no need to use any additional power supplies. The extra advantage is reducing the unaesthetic wiring – it is possible to install monitoring system in furnished interiors without cutting walls.

EASY ACCESS TO CAMERA MENU AND USER-FRIENDLY INTERFACE
A huge advantage of IP cameras is an easy access to the device using the connection via web browser. In addition, the graphic interface makes the configuration quicker.
STREAMING MULTIPLE STREAMS IN DIFFERENT QUALITIES FOR VARIOUS PURPOSES
IP systems enable distribution of video material sent to the network at streams in different quality. The cameras allow you to set two or more streams – the main stream is intended for record and preview on full screen, the second one – for the preview in divided screen or, e.g. via Internet.
SIMPLE REDUNDANCY –
It keeps the recordings safe in case of misfortunes, such as damage or stealing a recording device.
CAMERAS WITH „FISHEYE” LENS – VIRTUAL PTZ
Cameras with „fisheye” lens generate video stream as an omni-directional image. Due to compatibility with appropriate software (e.g. NMS) and digital edition of the stream, you can divide it and create any number of „virtual” views. This enables the observation of entire space using only single camera. It is possible to browse the stream in the same way as from PTZ cameras and due to very high quality resolution the image is very detailed, thus it allows you to make a significant digital zoom.
CAMERAS WITH IMAGE ANALYSIS
Thanks to efficient and advanced processor in IP cameras it is possible to use innovative options of image analysis, such as detection of: camera tampering, loitering, gathering, moving into forbidden direction, parking, etc.
