Different types of technology for variable video surveillance solutions

Effective video surveillance based on particularly clear image data. Depending on the area of application, location and individual security needs, the range of required camera functions varies for the type of security needed. In the following, we present you with different technologies – IP, HD-SDI, analog HD (HD-TVI) and analog – to give you an initial overview of the strengths of the individual camera types.

More about the right technology

Analog technology

Analog video cameras can be upgraded to a hybrid system using existing technology – your PC can be a video recorder.

IP cut filter

The infrared cut filter in the ABUS day/night cameras adjusts the light hitting the image sensor: in daylight, it filters out the disturbing infrared light.

IP technology

IP technology is ideal for video surveillance: Video software makes any PC into a network recorder within an existing LAN or WLAN network.
