The Advantages of MegaPixel

Megapixel cameras have been one of most significant advancements for video security in recent history, and have permanently changed how professionals think about their video surveillance solutions. There are several key advantages made possible by megapixel technology, including:

1. Ultra High Resolutions

The image resolution delivered by a megapixel camera is at least 3x higher than that of a traditional analog CCTV camera. Higher resolution provides greater detail. Greater detail allows for better identification.

2. Forensic Inspection

When reviewing live or recorded video, megapixel cameras allow you to digitally zoom in on a specific area, with minimal loss of definition, to capture important details such as facial features or a license plate.

3. REDUCED Costs

Megapixel technology allows you to use fewer cameras to capture the level of detail your solution requires, greatly reducing both camera and installation costs.

4. PTZ Alternative

Before megapixel, video scanning vast areas required a PTZ camera. While a viable surveillance tool, the motors and gears in PTZ cameras require more maintenance and have shorter life. Additionally, PTZ scanning leaves a large area unmonitored and recorded. Megapixel provides digital PTZ capabilities live or recorded, while capturing the complete picture all the time.

5. Ease of Installation

Megapixel cameras connect to your existing network, and are capable of using PoE (power over Ethernet). Pull one cable to the nearest Ethernet port and you’re done. No homerun cabling. No power concerns. Less hassle. Less cost.

6. Ease of Use

Our network software provides a search function that quickly scans your network for cameras. Simply add the cameras to your viewing window, and you're in business. And like any IP camera, you can now view and manage features remotely, via your network and over the Internet
