Whether for a new installation or an upgrade, IP cameras together with a network video recorder (NVR) provide the best image quality for any CCTV system. We consider NVRs the preferred choice for any new CCTV system. Our recorders and cameras feature resolutions up to 12MPixels, so far exceed the quality of analogue and HD-SDI alternatives. They are very easy to install and provide maximum flexibility in terms of mix of cameras, connection distances and viewing options. Videoswitch NVRs auto-detect the cameras, and a single CAT5 cable to each camera is all that is needed, power being provided by the NVR or a PoE ethernet switch. Longer runs can be easily achieved using ethernet extenders or other technologies such as optical fibre, wireless, powerline etc. One or more local monitors can be used for viewing the images, and distance can be extended using HDMI extenders. Viewing can also be via ethernet, local (LAN) or wide area (WAN) using PC, MAC or smartphone. We also offer an HD remote viewer that allows the recorder to be viewed in HD and controlled from anywhere, without needing a computer.
