Resolution Comic

It's 2022 and, understandably, many security professionals are still looking through blurry 4CIF or 720p camera lenses. There are a variety of reasons why security professionals are still using older, lower resolution cameras, and budget usually tops the list. Eventually, it's time to plan for an upgrade.

Let's take a look at 8 considerations >>

Storage

Divar IP 7000 AIOWhen you add higher resolution cameras to your system, there are a few considerations. Storage capacity usually needs to be upgraded. Older cameras required less hard drive storage. While today's high resolution cameras leverage data compression, it's still important to do proper storage calculations before making a change.

Network

Working with the IT department is critical to the success of any security camera system upgrade. We can help you have a discussion with your IT department by providing technical details from bandwidth to cyber security measures.

Compatibility

Workstations
