The first centralized IP (Internet Protocol) camera was released in 1996 by Axis Communications.
IP cameras are able to send and receive data via a network or the internet which make them more flexible. Webcams are the more popular network and internet streaming cameras while the IP camera is more often used in the security and surveillance field.
A CCTV (closed circuit television) camera is limited and only able to send data to one TV or device. The range limits are critical factors and can only be extended with a CCTV camera setup with a repeater, broadcaster or cabling, and which is mainly an in-house solution.
With a PTZ (pan, tilt and zoom) camera the IP camera is able to pan horizontally, tilt vertically and zoom for close-ups, allowing for a complete area security and surveillance.
IP cameras may be equipped with audio capabilities. Day and night vision is also available on some IP camera models but this will be determined by the application thereof. An IP camera that monitors cash tills, or is setup to control which car is at the gate does not need night vision. Some IP cameras have special lenses, which allows for wide shots or is able to zoom very close for extreme close ups and has great resolution.
IP cameras are normally mounted with brackets and all weather casings are also available. Some all-weather casings have small, built in heaters to prevent glass and lenses from fogging up in cold weather. Dome casings allow for more free movement and wide angels.
IP cameras can also be equipped with either motion tracking sensors or motion recording sensors. The IP camera will start recording a certain area where movement is detected or, when something, which is not supposed to be, is left at a particular point as at airports where people are requested not to leave any baggage unattended.
