What is a network camera
Network cameras record videos. They are frequently used in classical surveillance applications and in combination with industrial cameras. Some typical characteristics are:
- often placed within robust housings designed to be resistant to jolts and harsh weather, making them suited for use indoors or out.
- a variety of functions such as day/night modes and special infrared filters deliver outstanding image quality even under extremely poor lighting and weather conditions.
- they compress the images they record. This reduces the volume of data to such a degree that it can be stored in the camera. By connecting to a network, a theoretically unlimited number of users can also access the camera.
