Megapixel Challenges DiscussedBy: John Honovich, Published on Jul 22, 2010
Moving to megapixel IP cameras brings a number of challenges and considerations that are new even to experienced security integrators. This week, we held a webinar that featured an extension discussion with integrators and other industry professionals on these points.
In the 5 minute video below, we examine how to determine what types of cameras are needed to achieve a certain quality level. The video explores the use of pixels per foot and Field of View widths in designing megapixel based surveillance systems. [Note: For background, make sure to read our in-depth report on 'How Many Pixels are Needed for High Quality Video Surveillance'.]
