Firetide: A Guide to Video Mesh Networks

A Guide to Video Mesh Networks

This White Paper provides an overview of the current state of video surveillance technology. Briefly, this White Paper will: explain the evolution of digital network cameras, also known as IP cameras; discuss bandwidth issues; Provide a overview of the installation process.

Old-style video surveillance systems often failed to deliver quality images. The limitations of camera, cabling, and recording technology required numerous compromises that resulted in poor picture quality.

Today's systems require few, if any, such compromises. Modern solid-state cameras are smaller than a pack of playing cards, yet deliver broadcast-quality video. Some models can deliver HDTVquality video. Improvements in video compression technology make it possible to deliver these images at relatively low data rates - only a few megabits per second.
