Analogue vs Digital CCTV Systems
Beyond Sound can offer the very latest technology in both analogue systems and fully digital security systems.
The main difference between the two system types is that analogue CCTV cameras record images to a digital recorder and then convert this video to a digital format. This requires the DVR to be connected to a monitor or router in order to be broadcast through an internal network for remote access.
Digital CCTV cameras or IP (internet protocol) cameras are already recorded in digital format and so the conversion process is not required. The data recorded is sent to a dedicated network video recorder through the existing network and can be accessed remotely.
