There is no doubt that an IP CCTV system will give a much higher resolution picture with better detail than a standard analogue system. There are still thousands of analogue CCTV cameras installed across the country and while many businesses are choosing to upgrade to IP CCTV there is still a role for modern analogue CCTV.
Analogue CCTV systems are reliable and offer good value for money. Plus specialised analogue cameras can offer advantages over IP in certain environments.
Analogue cameras can also be incorporated into ‘hybrid’ solutions. A hybrid CCTV system can record both analogue and IP cameras on the same recorder. A Digital Video Recorder (DVR) will convert the incoming video signal from the cameras to digital, compress it and then record images to a hard drive. We will advise you on the range Digital Recording and Connectivity options to meet your security system requirements.
An Analogue system is straight-forward to install using standard coaxial cable and without the need for the involvement of IT or Network departments.
