CCTV: IP Cameras

eiodotcom —  September 5, 2012 — 1 Comment

Today’s Eio post is on IP cameras.


Dome cameras fall under the larger umbrella of CCTV (closed-circuit television) cameras. They generally serve the same purposes as other CCTV cameras, being that they are cameras to transmit a video signal to a specific place, usually viewed over a monitor. Dome cameras are most often used for video survelliance purposes.

IP Cameras

An IP camera, or an internet protocol camera, is often referred to as a network camera. It utilizes internet protocol to transmit video and other images over internet connections. They are similar to CCTV cameras which send video signals to a video monitor and recording system, but IP cameras usually stream content to a network video recorder (NVR) or a PC, rather than to a digital video recorder (DVR).

Wikipedia says there are two kinds of IP cameras:

  • Centralized IP cameras, which require a central Network Video Recorder (NVR) to handle the recording, video and alarm management.
  • Decentralized IP cameras, which do not require a central Network Video Recorder (NVR), as the cameras have recording functionality built-in and can thus record directly to digital storage media, such as flash drives, hard disk drives or network attached storage.
