Why IP Video Is A Better Investment
by Maureen Bruen
you tired of looking at pixilated images? Have you
considered upgrading your existing cameras to IP?
Does the investment deter you from the switch? If
so, it doesnt have to.
Over the past six months, I have
met surveillance directors and technicians at various
gaming properties across the U.S. As they evaluated
our equIP Series of High Definition (HD) network cameras
either in a 720p and/or 1080p resolution, they were
thoroughly impressed with the performance. Why? Because
the HD images are clearer-the resolution is three
times better with a 720p and six times better with
a 1080p than your best analog image.
Take a look at the two images below.
One is from the 720p camera; the other is the 1080p.
As you can see, the quality is significantly better
than the analog, 4-CIF image above.
is the same image with a 720p camera.
You may think that quality like
this would require a great amount of bandwith and
storage space. That is not the case. Most customers
do not need to increase their storage footprint. In
fact, a 720p camera does not require more bandwidth
or storage than a full resolution analog camera. Some
found they could even use one 1080p camera over a
poker table instead of using multiple analog cameras.
They improved the picture quality and reduced their
camera count-now thats a win-win!
Many casinos have difficult lighting
scenarios. They are plagued with areas that are dimly
lit, too much light or varying degrees of light. Often,
the casinos aesthetics take preference over
surveillance recommendations. No problem! Our results
provide crisp images and stunning color even in challenging
lighting conditions. If the light above the table
game is creating glare, no worries because reflected
glare from cards is typically eliminated. All of Honeywells
720p and 1080p models are gaming compliant with 30fps
for video recording.
shows the image from the 1080p.
The equIP Series includes two fixed
dome housings models: HD3 for indoor and HD4 for vandal
proof/outdoor. For those who prefer traditional box
cameras, there is an HCD5 Series. Several casinos
use the HD3MDIH indoor dome for their game floor surveillance.
They like it because it is low profile and can be
recessed or wall/pendant mounted with an optional
mounting kit. Both models offer top, low light performance
with our true day/night models. A wide dynamic for
high contrast areas is also available in all three
models with a 720p resolution.
You dont need to be in the
gaming industry to see the benefits of our cameras.
They work great in commercial spaces too! Dont
believe me, just try one for yourself
