Those who keep up with progress and changes in the CCTV industry will no doubt have heard the buzz around 4K CCTV and be aware of this latest trend. To make it simpler for you we have compiled our top 5 benefits of the 4K CCTV revolution…
See the evidence
All CCTV cameras can observe and record the movements of individuals, traffic and crowds, but can they really provide you with the level of detail you require? Although many HD systems can deliver the high definition quality so many consumers require, 4k UHD cameras go one step further, providing options to improve digital zoom quality of CCTV images.
Build on existing infrastructure
With the developments in IP technology over the past few years, it will be no surprise to you that 4k UHD CCTV can easily be built on to your existing infrastructure. IT infrastructures used are usually way ahead of the security industry’s requirements, so most routers, switches and PCs (etc.) are already easily compatible to 4K CCTV.
Many VMS (video management systems) will operate with 4K cameras, making an upgrade to your existing solution relatively simple. The VMS will often record the 4K stream and use lower resolution sub stream for display, live and analytics functionality, optimised for the viewing device and aiming to save bandwidth.
Cost savings over HD CCTV
4K cameras can achieve greater site coverage than full HD cameras, so the real cost savings come from the need for fewer cameras, less cabling, configuration, recording channels and VMS software licenses. The end user can also be assured that greater scene coverage is achieved and fewer site incidents are missed with 4K.
4 x the detail
UHD CCTV cameras can provide 4 times the detail of that of a standard HD CCTV (1080p) camera allowing you to see the bigger picture, in greater detail. Unlike many analogue and HD cameras, 4K UHD CCTV isn’t just observational, it’s evidentiary.
