Getting to know the IP Camera

IP Camera (internet protocol camera) is required if we want to monitor a place, but the place is very far away. Currently IP Camera has begun to mushroom its use because of its easy installation and has a lot of cheap IP Camera in the market. Before there was an IP Camera, CCTV was used to monitor the distance, but CCTV had the disadvantage of limited monitoring distance.
Use of IP Camera for example: Security, Monitoring, Live View on website dll.
To be able to create a network IP Camera requires a little basic knowledge of computer networks.
According to wikipedia: “An Internet protocol camera, or IP camera, is a type of digital video camera commonly employed for surveillance, and which unlike analog closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras can send and receive data via a computer network and the Internet.” This means roughly like this “IP camera is a digital camera used for monitoring that can transfer data through computer networks and the internet”.

Differences CCTV with IP Camera
CCTV is an analog camera with standard analog signal output of PAL or NTSC. CCTV can be directly connected to Television. For recording usually use a VCR (video cassette recorder).
CCTV -> Television and / or VCR Monitor
Is the analog CCTV already installed integrated in computer / digital networks?
Yes it can, by adding a DVR (digital video recorder) or Video Encoder.
CCTV -> DVR <-> LAN or
CCTV -> Video Encoder <-> LAN
While the output IP Camera has shaped digital data (such as M-JPEG or MPEG-4 format) which can be directly connected to a computer network.
IP Camera <-> LAN
Basic IP Network Camera
Basically connecting the IP Camera to the network is not much different with the tools connected to the computer network. That is the first he must have an IP address. How to give (setting) IP addresses vary for each brand. The trick can be seen in the manual of each.
Examples of simple network IP Camera:
IP camera network is simple
How to Access IP Camera the easiest with web browser semacem mozilla or IE or google crome. Simply by typing the IP address of the camera in the web browser will display a simple display or menu to enable IP Camera.
For the wider use of web browsers is not sufficient anymore then required a special software that we can call with Video Management Software. This software is used for:
– Managing IP Camera with the number of lots.
– Record video and audio data.
– Manage user access.
– View simultaneously from many Camera
– Search for record data.
– Video motion detector (VMD).
– Etc.
Oh yes, HP android can also be used for IP camera lhoo. Try looking for IPCAM application in android market. With IPCAM installed on HP Android, Camera on android mobile can be accessed by Laptop via Wi-Fi.
Video Streaming
What is Streaming Video?
Video streaming is a term that we often use when viewing internet videos via a browser where we do not need to download the video file to be able to play it. The term is comprised of two syllables namely video and streaming, in video terms means technology for capturing, recording, processing, transmitting and rearranging moving images, while streaming means the process of delivering data in a continuous and fixed stream that lets users access and use files before the data is completely discarded. So video streaming can mean the continuous video file transmission that allows the video to play without waiting for the video file to be delivered in its entirety. Video streaming is widely implemented in the world of television to broadcast from the website or send a live image via the website or also called live streming. So the images obtained from the live broadcast, as soon as possible are transmitted and can be played through the internet.
Streaming Video Method
In general, the video streaming method is very simple, that is, by dividing the video in several parts of the encoded packet before it is sent, then on the receiver, the packet will be decoded to be rotated, this activity will continue until the video packet has been fully delivered.
