According to industrial reports, network based camera continue to gain momentum in many markets. While applications vary substantially from business to business, the ability to monitor remotely from anyplace, at any time, is what users primarily want.

But the needs for an IP camera have since changed. With advance technology emerging, users now want more functionality, such as the ability to view a bigger area, smaller file size and capturing finer details.

AirLive new generation of IP Cameras (AirCam Series) provides much more functionality then regular network based cameras. In this special 4-part series report, we will show you how these new features will make your surveillance system better and more secure than ever before.


Looking at a bigger picture

Megapixel have an important role to play in video surveillance as it allows you to view a bigger monitoring area.

AirLive AirCam series come with 1.3 megapixel CMOS lens with a resolution of up 1208x1024. That is 4 times the image area of a regular IP camera.

With a bigger monitoring area, you will need fewer cameras thus reducing your Total Cost of Ownership.


High Definition details

There are situation where you need to be able to identify persons or objects in a scene. This could be point-of-sales monitoring where it is necessary to clearly see the entire transaction to avoid disputes, or in situation where you need to be able to identify faces or vehicles license plates.

High detail images can be achieved by installing camera with zoom capability to allow a closer view of the area of interest. But with a regular camera, such enlarged images are usually blurring and pixilated.

AirLive AirCam series provide you with high definition images, allowing you to see the details clearly even in zoomed situation.



Save on storage and bandwidth

In situations where you need to keep the recorded footages for a long period of time, or in places where the video streams need to be send via wireless means, file sizes can be an issue as regular IP Cameras uses MJPEG or MPEG-4 video compression that can take up a lot of disk spaces.

AirCam series uses the latest H.264 compression technology that can reduce up to 90% in file sizes, thus conserving network bandwidth and storage spaces. With the smaller file sizes, you saved on storage equipments making your surveillance system even more cost effective.
