Beyond the Datasheet: Our top IP camera contenders for 2018

January 25th, 2018 by Bethanne Pugh

Looking back over 2017, we saw continuous growth of the IP camera market with the introduction of new product ranges and interesting technologies. Industry leaders Axis released their first ever, innovatively designed, ‘true’ outdoor-ready CS-mount IP camera and also brought the best-selling M31 Series to the table. Meanwhile, Samsung Wisenet’s P, Q and X ranges were introduced to Network Webcams and we saw Bosch’s new ‘intelligent’ range of IP cameras which feature edge-based, IVA and Essential video analytics. It was also a big year in terms of software, with Milestone releasing two new ‘business-ready’ XProtect products: XProtect Express+ and Professional+. Both of which provide access to a host of advanced Milestone features and allow you to take full advantage of the latest in IP camera technology.

With an abundance of IP cameras available, it can often be a daunting task to choose the right model for your needs. To make things a little easier, we decided to highlight some of the units which we feel could be popular ‘go-to’ choices this year.

Using image rotation to optimise coverage and bandwidth usage

March 8th, 2017 by Nathan Mount

Demonstrating how rotating the image is beneficial

When choosing a camera for video surveillance in narrow scenes such as long corridors, staircases, aisles and tunnels, the traditional landscape-oriented setup may not be the optimal choice. If you’re monitoring a narrow corridor or passageway, a sizeable portion of the scene is going to be walls either side, making a lot of your image redundant. The full area and resolution of the camera’s image sensor is not being fully utilised and this means that evidence of events occurring outside this limited area of coverage may be missed. These redundant sections either side of the image also consume bandwidth and storage that could really be put to better use.

This is where the ability to rotate the image proves to be very handy. This feature allows you to obtain a portrait-oriented video stream – effectively turning an HD camera’s 16:9 aspect ratio to a 9:16 aspect ratio. By filming in this orientation, you are ensuring that the whole sensor covers the area of interest, maximising coverage and eliminating bandwidth and storage waste.

Best selling IP camera highlights for 2016

January 12th, 2017 by Nathan Mount

List of the Best selling IP cameras for 2016

Looking back at 2016, it was an interesting year in the IP camera market with a surge of interest in Hikvision cameras (despite some controversial press coverage on the Chinese brand) and the response of other brands to this rise in popularity. We saw brands such as Axis release a flurry of new products during the latter part of 2016 and our Bosch camera category also grew exponentially with new high quality units. New 4K resolution cameras continued to appear through 2016 and whilst the adoption of this resolution has been slow, we can see that advances in compression technology and hardware accelerated image processing is helping make 4K more viable while users wait for network infrastructure and available bandwidth to catch up.

Bosch begin adding edge-based video analytics as standard

August 25th, 2016 by Paul Sandford

Bosch video analyticsBosch is renowned in the world of IP CCTV for its background in engineering and the ability to create innovative products.

They’re a manufacturer that prefers to launch new technology only when they’ve been able to maximise its full potential, so when we heard they were introducing edge-based video analytics in their cameras, we wanted to know more.

There are two types of Bosch video analytics – Essential Video Analytics and Intelligent Video Analytics. You could think of these as “Standard” and “Advanced” but it’s fair to say that even the “Standard” version is feature-rich with a varied choice of intrusion, object, direction and behaviour related motion detection rules including people counting and crowd detection.
