sThere are a wide variety of security cameras available for commercial security systems in Mississauga. From network IP cameras, to dome cameras, to analog one, there are quite a few options to consider, each with its own benefits, cost and limitations. However, HDCVI stands or High-Definition Composite Video Interface, is a new technology that might revolutionize the market, and set a new benchmark for low cost HD camera solution for businesses.
When it is your turn to pick a camera for your own security solutions, you want the one that offers the best quality at the most reasonable price, and HDCVI technology can offer both.
To know more on the topic, and the benefits and secrets of HDCVI cameras, check out the following article:
HDCVI – The Low Cost HD Security Camera Secret
The very first CCTV system was installed by Siemens AG at Test Stand VII in Peenemünde, Germany in 1942. The system was designed for observing the launch of V-2 rockets and noted German engineer Walter Burch, along with Wayne Cox and Tashara Arnold, were responsible for the technological design and installation of the system.
The first commercial closed-circuit television system available in the United States came about in 1949 under the name Vericon.
There is very little known about Vericon aside from the fact that it was advertised as not requiring a government permit.
Flash forward 20 years to September 1968 when Olean, New York became the first city in the U.S. to install video cameras along its main business street in an effort to fight crime.
Times Square in New York City saw the installation of security cameras in 1973 to deter crime in that area as well. It wasn’t until the 1980s that video surveillance began to see wide adaptation, specifically in public areas.
Since then security camera technology has grown exponentially. There are a lot of different kinds of security cameras, all of which have their own strengths and weaknesses.
Bullet cameras are a wall-mounted or ceiling-mounted unit that is designed for indoor use primarily, but can be outfitted for outdoor use. Bullet cameras are also designed to have a fixed position and not allow for Pan/Tilt/Zoom (PTZ) functionality.
Dome cameras are, as the name implies, dome-shaped and designed to be unobtrusive, not covert or hidden. Dome cameras are usually used in retail, gas stations, and other similar applications.
These cameras are also designed to let the would-be criminals know that the area is under surveillance. Patrons will feel safer knowing that the facility is under protection. These cameras have the ability to spin quickly within the housing and are sometimes known as “speed domes”. PTZ functionality is common on dome cameras.
Network/IP cameras can be both hardwired and wireless and transmit images via the internet. These cameras also compress the bandwidth so the internet is not overwhelmed. IP cameras are much easier to install than analog cameras because they don’t require a separate cable run or power boost in order to transmit images over long distances.
Ultra high-definition cameras are typically used in niche markets, like casinos. These allow pit bosses and other casino security officials to zoom in with extreme clarity. Over the years, these cameras were tube-based analog cameras though today’s technology has displaced those older units. In addition to that, these cameras can also transmit images via HDcctv.
