What is IP camera?

IP cameras are specifically designed to provide the added features/benefits of a typical IP camera without the need for advanced networking knowledge. Using an intelligent, built-in configuration wizard, Sentry IP cameras can be setup for plug-and-play connection.

IP cameras or network IP cameras stream live video via digital packets across an internet protocol network such as a LAN (Local Area Network) or the Internet. The benefit of network cameras, is that they reside on IP networks; the video streams can then be accessed and stored remotely. This enables users to view and/or manage the IP cam using a standard web browser or video management software from different locations, giving businesses increased flexibility. If you are serious about home and office security, IP Camera Supply is here to help.

What is CCTV Camera?

Surveillance cameras for a wide range of applications: home, business and on the move. Monitor and protect your property with high quality and sound technology at an affordable price. Conventional wired CCTV systems direct to a monitor, or wireless kits. Record video on a conventional VCR, a computer hard-drive or DVD recorder. CCTV can be connected to alarms, telephone and internet connects.

The closed circuit television (CCTV) system is used on orbit to provide support to orbiter and payload activities. This support includes transmitting real-time and recorded video from the orbiter to MCC through either the S-band FM or Ku-band communications systems. Mission requirements for CCTV and camera configurations are specified in the Flight Requirements Document for each shuttle flight.

The CCTV system consists of video processing equipment, TV cameras (and lens assemblies), pan/tilt units (PTUs), camcorders, video tape recorders (VTRs), color television monitors (CTVMs), and all the cabling and accessories required to make these components work together. All CCTV operations can be controlled by the crew. Most CCTV configuration commands can be executed by the Instrumentation and Communications Officer (INCO) at Mission Control. Among the commands MCC cannot uplink are those to configure and operate loose CCTV equipment, such as camcorders and VTRs, and selection of inputs to the color monitors.

Standard CCTV components are powered via circuit breakers located on panel R14. Flight specific keel cameras (prox ops or berthing) are usually powered from a cabin payload bus. CCTV pushbuttons on panel A7U have lights that illuminate to provide visual feedback on camera and CCTV routing configuration.
