Less Is More – A Small But Useful Megapixel Event in Chicago

I think one of the inhibitors to the adoption of IP surveillance cameras is the mystery. So anytime someone can help us demystify the technology and its uses, we should be grateful.  Sentinelmainimage

That’s why I felt so good about the event I attended last night, hosted by IQinvision at The University of Chicago Business School.  Regional sales Manager Lisa Bradshaw and one of her colleagues, led us through a business case and best practices for specifying the correct cameras.

Personally I had been unclear about how many megapixel IP cameras any deployment might need relative to the number of analog cameras. In other words, if I would need 9 analog cameras to cover a parking lot, how many IP cameras would I need to do the same job?  Lisa showed us a tool for calculating that, which came from the IQinvision website, along with a product selector to make those calculations easier. These two tools are remarkable for two reasons: one, they take the guesswork out of specifying a megapixel camera, and they’re available as a web-based application – something you don’t see everyday.

Many of you know I have not been the biggest fan of megapixel cameras, mainly because of the difficulty in making the business case. IQeye has worked hard to figure out the value proposition for the obvious reason that they need to sell more cameras, and this event really brought the value prop into clearer focus. I could see finally how fewer, more expensive cameras could have a lower total-cost of ownership (TCO) than a greater number of less expensive analog cameras, even considering bandwidth and storage. 

The beer was cold, the other attendees were interesting, but mainly I walked away with a new appreciation for the cost-effectiveness of the new megapixel IP cameras. Good job IQeye.

    But you should remember one thing; your skins sensitivity towards sunlight
    will increase when you use lemon juice. Up till 4th game Splinter Cell was outstanding, always bringing something fresh
    and new to franchise and learning on past mistakes.
    This was done for one reason only, and that was to stage the war scenes.
