Megapixel cameras help focus on the details

Published by Amelia on January 6, 2011 4:28 PM

If you're looking for IP cameras that will provide much higher resolution and clearer video images than traditional security cameras, then megapixel cameras may be the right solution for you. With improved resolution megapixel cameras significantly increase the camera's field of view without losing any image detail. A single megapixel camera can cover areas that would normally be monitored by multiple surveillance cameras.

Because megapixel cameras have a much higher resolution, surveillance operators can easily zoom in on specific portions of the recorded images to identify individuals, license plate numbers or other crucial details. This is especially helpful for surveillance applications where that much detail is needed such as banks, casinos, airports, and retail stores.

There are a wide variety of megapixel cameras available. The Axis P3344 fixed dome network camera delivers 1-megapixel resolution with day/night functionality and tamper-resistant housing for around-the-clock surveillance even in challenging lighting conditions. The Vivotek FD8134 has already made a name for itself using its 1-megapixel resolution to assist in the heroic rescue of the trapped Chilean miners. With Power over Ethernet, the Vivotek IP camera can be installed anywhere along a network. Megapixel cameras can even be found in unique configurations like the Mobotix T24 IP Video Door Station. When this camera hit the market, we blogged about its innovative setup that combines a 3.1 megapixel 180° hemispheric door camera with an access control keypad. carries a large selection of megapixel cameras from major manufacturers including Axis, Vivotek, Mobotix, and more.
