Why IP Video Surveillance
IP video surveillance gives business owners new tools and capabilities for improving loss prevention and store performance. By enabling video to be captured as digital information and accessed anywhere on an IP-based network, IP video surveillance allows your loss prevention staff and other departments to view, analyze and manage surveillance video. Built-in intelligence also enables cameras to automatically detect and alert staff to potential thefts, suspicious behavior, and other events.
What’s more, through advantages in using common networking and digital camera technology, stores can achieve everything from a lower total cost of ownership to higher resolution imagery that improves forensic evidence and repurposing for training and other uses.
Here’s a look at six key advantages of IP video surveillance:
- Remote accessibility
Authorized users can access video at any time from any computer anywhere. RIT IP Video products provide an easy way to capture and distribute high-quality video over any kind of IP network or the Internet.
- Improving loss prevention
The programmable intelligence capabilities of IP video surveillance and network cameras enable detection of suspicious behavior by customers or employees, reducing the need for dedicated loss prevention staff to monitor shoppers.
Based on open standards, RIT IP Video products run on Ethernet networks. Using standard PC server hardware for video recording and storage rather than proprietary equipment such as DVRs radically reduces management and equipment costs, particularly for larger systems where storage and servers are a significant portion of the total solution cost.
- Easy, future-proof integration
There are almost no limitations as to where you can place RIT IP Video products. In addition, they have the capacity to provide a high level of integration with other equipment and functions, making it a continually developing system. With a RIT solution, you can seamlessly integrate your existing analog system into an IP-based solution.
- Scalability and flexibility
A RIT IP video system can be expanded by adding more IP cameras. This is just as easily done regardless of whether the new cameras are to be placed at the same site, or at a new location communicating over the Internet. You can choose exactly what you need today, and scale the system at any time to meet your growing needs.
- Distributed intelligence
In today’s network video systems, intelligence has been brought into the camera itself. Advanced IP cameras/IP video encoders can have built-in motion detection and alarm management so the camera decides when to send video, at what frame rate and resolution, and when to alert a specific operator for monitoring and/or response.
