4K Security Cameras

Why choose 4K IP security cameras over 1080P?

Let’s begin by first comparing common resolutions in megapixels, and image size in pixels:

  • 4K = 8.3 megapixels, 3840×2160 pixels
  • 1080p = 2 megapixels, 1920×1080 pixels
  • 720p= 1 megapixel, 1280×720 pixels
  • D1 = 0.4 megapixel, 704×480 pixels

Mainstream CCTV cameras have been D1 resolution (704×480 pixels) for the longest time until 2014, with megapixel sensors being price prohibitive for the home or small business. As image sensor technology improves, it has gotten cheaper and allowed 1080P cameras to become so affordable that they are on pace to replace analog resolution security cameras as the base resolution for a starter system. 1080P HD security cameras are more than adequate for indoor use where the subjects are no more than 40ft away from the camera, and even for outdoor use in most cases.  However, if you wish be able to zoom in and identify facial detail on recorded video at distances of 30ft or greater, that is only possible with 3mp ip cameras, or greater resolution cameras. If you’re looking for the most detail at a wide angle, then 4K IP cameras are the recommended equipment.

You would be surprised to know that 4K security cameras are becoming more affordable compared to previous year. At Cybersmetrics – Panama City, we have several brand names to offer (Samsung Security, Pelco, Exacq, Arecont Vision, Panasonic, Axis) of 4K technology  based on your budget and requirements. 4K Security Cameras is a perfect solution for Hospitality, Business, Government, and Private Sectors.

Ultra HD 4K vs 1080P

When you compare pixel count, 4K security cameras are 4x  higher in detail than 1080P.

4K resolution video vs 1080P

This higher level of detail in the picture afforded by a higher pixel count makes 4K security systems ideal for high-traffic areas where detail is crucial in identifying the difference in someone dancing and fighting. Too often, lower resolution security cameras leave ambiguity lingering as to what really occurred in a surveillance video clip. 4K cameras clear up this ever so present uncertainty in video footage. Athletic fields, Schools, universities, big box retail, train/bus stations and government facilities are just a few of the industries that could benefit from these 4K security cameras.

4K NVRs – Network Video Recorder

Depending on the size of the 4K security camera system you need, we offer network video recorders for 4K cameras in densities of 8, 16, 32, 64, and 128 channels. The 64 and 128 channel NVRs are available with hard drive Hot Swap ability which comes in handy in professional and business security projects where long term video storage is needed. Drive Hot Swap lets you replace video storage without ever having downtime.

4K Security Cameras – Samsung, Axis, Pelco, Arecont Vision, Panasonic

Ultra HD surveillance cameras are offered in three designs at this time. With all being IP66 or higher rated, they are all weather proof and can be used outdoor or indoors. There is a bullet and dome camera with 8MP CMOS sensor, and 66ft of infrared night vision. We also have a 360 degree fisheye dome camera that has a 12MP CMOS sensor, 32 ft night vision, and is IK10 vandal resistant. As is the case for all of our cameras, they contain advanced chip sets that allow for bandwidth control, image optimization with features such as DWDR, BLC, HLC, and digital noise reduction (DNR), allow of which allow you to optimize video in order to achieve your desired needs.

H. 265 vs. H. 264 Why Should I Care?

H. 265

H. 264
Low complexity area can be described more efficiently. It is especially important as all IP cameras get more and more resolution.
Save $$ on Bandwidth

H. 265

H. 264
H. 265 can save around 50% of the bit rate. This means, surveillance footage needs only half the data to stream over the network.
