The effect of IP cameras is affected by many factors. The cameras on the market are already very extensive, but IP cameras have become one of the most popular cameras. So do you know what will affect IP camera's effect and price?
The lens is the key to video capture, and the quality of the lens will naturally affect the effect of the video. The focal length of the lens has a great influence on the video effect, which means you should consider whether to choose an interchangeable lens model or whether to choose a zoom lens when choosing a product. It is worth mentioning that zoom refers to the focal length of the lens can be changed. There are IP cameras on the market with digital zoom function. Digital zoom means that the video image can be magnified and viewed without changing the clarity of the image at all, but it is of little value to the application of IP cameras.
The image sensor is a key factor that affects the video effectiveness. At present, there are two kinds of CMOS and CCD on the market. In terms of imaging, the imaging permeability and sharpness of CCD under the same pixel are very good, and the color reproduction and exposure can be guaranteed to be basically accurate. Ordinary CMOS products have poor permeability and weak color reproduction capabilities (the color of the monitored object is quite different from the one seen on the monitor, or even completely discolored), and the exposure is not very good. Due to its own physical characteristics, there is still a certain gap between the imaging quality of ordinary CMOS and CCD. CMOS video images have better artistic effects, just like people taking artistic photos. Everyone knows that artistic photos are beautiful but not realistic. People are usually confused by their artistic effects and ignore the importance of clarity and fidelity. In fact, these two points are very important when monitoring the industry. So the image sensor of the IP camera will also affect the effectiveness.
There are different types of IP camera in YCX. Some IP cameras are designed to support two video signals, the so-called dual stream. The advantage of dual stream is that using one stream to watch and storing one stream can prevent network congestion more effectively than using one stream for viewing and storage, so as to better ensure the smoothness of the video on the effective network bandwidth.
Some IP cameras have an SD card slot or USB mobile storage interface, which we call front-end storage. Front-end storage is often used in monitoring environments with insufficient bandwidth. In some environments, it is not convenient to install broadband. Using the front-end storage function to save the surveillance video to achieve a certain surveillance effect is also a useful way.
