Training: IP Addressing for Video SurveillanceBy: John Honovich, Published on Apr 24, 2010
If you are going to deploy video surveillance, you will need to use IP addresses. This becomes even more important when you move to IP cameras as you will require far more IP addresses (compared to traditional combinations of analog cameras + networked DVRs). Equally as important, the complexity in issuing IP addresses and connecting to those IP addresses increases significantly.
In the pro section, we provide a 21 minute screencast that breaks down the key issues and elements in using IP addresses.
Key aspect we cover include:
- MAC vs IP addresses
- Public vs Private IP addresses
- Dynamic vs Static IP addresses
- DNS vs IP address entries
- NAT and DHCP
- Demonstrations of using each of these technologies with IP cameras
