Video security technology has drastically improved over the
last twenty years and we have security camera system features now that weren’t
even in their infancy just 10 years ago. If you haven’t shopped for a video
security system before, the laundry list of standard features can be a bit
daunting at first glance and you may feel in over your head. Don’t panic.
Whether you’re looking for a small, entry level system to secure your home or
your security needs are a little more complex, H.264 Video Compression is one
of the most important aspects of CCTV.
H.264 is the latest and greatest video compression codec
that greatly reduces the demands on your video recorder’s storage space and
transmission bandwidth. (In a nutshell, it makes smaller video files and
transmits them faster over your network.) Compared to the MPEG-4 video codec,
recorders with H.264 compression use half of the bandwidth while transmitting
the video at the same video quality.
To get the absolute most out of your video recorder’s
storage space, we strongly recommend using a DVR / NVR with the H.264 codec and
motion activated recording. It’s not uncommon for systems using this setup to
be able to store at least a month’s worth of video on a single hard drive.
