Megapixel IP Cameras
Megapixel IP Cameras - Megapixel cameras up the ante for video surveillance by providing much higher image resolution than traditional security cameras. Megapixel cameras are any cameras with over one million pixels. Most are rated 1.3 megapixels. The improved resolution results in clearer images and a wider field of view without losing any image detail. Megapixel cameras are also typically less light sensitive than non-megapixel cameras.
