CCTV Camera Glossary

  • CCD and CMOS
    A charge-coupled device (CCD) or complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor (CMOS). These are two kinds of image sensing systems used in cameras and camcorders. They convert an optical image into an electronic signal. The differences between the two systems are marginal,. Although CCD is generally thought to result in slightly better image quality.
  • H.264
    H.264 is short for H.264/MPEG-4 Part 10 or AVC (Advanced Video Coding). It is a common standard for compressing video files. It is also one of the most frequently used formats for recording, compressing and distributing high-definition video. And can handle (HD) 720p and 1080p video without sacrificing quality.
  • IP
    IP stands for Internet Protocol. An IP camera is a digital camera that can send and receive data via the internet or a Local Area Network (LAN). IP cameras are most commonly used for security and surveillance. Internet access means that the video recorded on the IP camera has the potential to be stored and viewed anywhere in the world. IP cameras usually transmit their data wirelessly. This means they don’t require the installation of cables so they are easier to set up and re-position when needed.
  • Lumens
    The brightness of a light is measured in lumens. The lumen rating tells you the overall brightness of a LED light or a LED projector is capable of producing. To give you an example, an average car headlight is between 800 and 1,200 lumens.
  • PTZ
    PTZ stands for pan, tilt, and zoom. A PTZ camera can be controlled remotely, either manually or automatically. This allows you to adjust the position of the camera, focusing in on movement or any activity that interests you. PTZ systems enable you to monitor a large area with a single camera, or a small number of cameras in a network.
  • IP (or “Ingress Protection”) Rating
    Not to be confused with Internet protocol the IP rating lets you know how well it is protected from the elements. The first digit is the resistance solids such as dust and dirt particles and goes from 0 which is no protection to 6 which is dust tight. The second digit it the water resistance and goes from no protection at 0 to Immersion beyond 1 meter at 8. A typical outdoor waterproof security camera will have an IP66, IP67, or IP68 rating. An indoor camera will likely lack this protection.

How To Choose The Right Surveillance Camera Equipment

There are many factors to consider when purchasing security and surveillance equipment. For IP camera and DVR systems, you should ensure that cameras record enough frames per second (FPS) to give you a smooth image. Typically, business and home users should expect between 15 and 30 FPS for adequate playback. Secondly, you should consider video compression. There are three types of compression – MJPEG, MPEG-4, and H.264.

H.264 is the most sophisticated of these and uses the least bandwidth. This means you can use more cameras on the same broadband connection and record more hours of video onto a hard drive. For other equipment, you should ensure that its feature set matches your requirements now and in the foreseeable future. For instance, if you are planning to move to new premises in the foreseeable future invest in a CCTV system like an NVR that can grow to suit your needs.

When comparing prices on security and surveillance equipment you may see similar products at different prices. The most common reasons for these variations are that newly released, recent technology items will usually be more expensive than lower specification or older products. Higher resolution cameras, more inputs and outputs, wireless capabilities, more memory, and the latest operating systems can all be reasons why products sell for higher prices.
