What is an analog camera?

Analog surveillance cameras are the traditional ones that operate in closed-circuit CCTV (Closed Circuit Television) systems. They capture images and transmit them through coaxial cables to a recording system. Analog systems offer many advantages, with the most significant being their lower cost compared to IP cameras. Additionally, they are easier to use and install.

Moreover, analog camera technology has evolved, and the image quality and resolution are now close to that of IP cameras. However, there are situations where you may not achieve the same video quality, as analog cameras have a lower frame rate, which means some details can be lost when there is a lot of motion in the images. Another dilemma is related to the coverage area, which is generally smaller than that of IP cameras. It's also good to know that the DVR technology used with analog cameras requires separate connections and multiple cables to function.


What is an IP camera?

An IP video surveillance system generally uses an IP network (Internet Protocol). IP cameras transmit information through the internet network to the recording system. This is done using Power over Ethernet (PoE), a switch with multiple ports that ensures the connection and communication of multiple IP cameras. The digital images are then recorded on a hard drive, USB, Cloud, or other storage systems through software. The content can be viewed remotely through a computer, phone, or other devices.

IP cameras have many advantages, one of which is the image quality, which is usually better compared to analog cameras. They also offer additional features, such as progressive scanning, and can cover larger areas than most analog cameras. Another benefit is that they require fewer network cables. In general, setting up an IP camera system needs a less complex cabling setup, which may include coaxial cables, audio cables, and power cables.

IP (Internet Protocol) refers to digital video cameras that can send/receive data through a computerized network instead of reporting to a Digital Video Recorder (DVR).
