Low latency wireless camera – Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ)

There has been the advancement of cameras within the security industry. The evolution has seen the technology drift from analog to digital, from low resolution to high resolution and now into the frontline of High-Definition. There are many features that contribute to the worth and efficiency of video surveillance. One of the aspects is latency. There are two types of latency within a surveillance system, namely;

– Image latency

– Command latency

Image latency is the time between which the scene in front of the surveillance camera changes to the time when the change appears on an appropriate monitor.

The latency that is applicable to only the PTZ cameras is the command latency. This latency is defined as the time between when a command is issued to adjust a view of the camera to when the view on the monitor changes. Some PTZ cameras can be surrounded in dome covering for security or for beauty. The main advantage of this low latency wireless camera is that one person can run or control multiple cameras due to their robotic feature. The cameras come in handy in a situation where multiple camera angles are required.

The excellent speed of the PTZ cameras allows the operator or security staffs to precisely track subjects on mission-critical applications. One major issue that faces the PTZ cameras is the low latency, especially when watching a live video. Due to the fact that low latency wireless camera needs to compress a video before transmitting it, they encounter video latency. To address the issue of video latency, you can increase your bandwidth by improving your network infrastructure and lower the minute rate of streaming.

Different cameras use diverse control protocols. Some low latency wireless camera features a joystick for panning, tilting and even zooming while on the other hand, some can be adjusted remotely on a fly.

PTZ cameras have live video switchers that offer a quad or numerous view divided screens to enable you to view all the surveillance videos in a single monitor.

Advantages of using PTZ cameras for video surveillance

– They have a pan rotation and tilt rotation at high speed

– Have smart tracking and patrol features

– Great zoom and autofocus function

– Lengthy term consistent performance

– Night vision

– High definition options

Security cameras help you monitor your home. However, not all cameras are the same, different cameras have different features. But all of them need to leverage on a low-latency transmission technology both for video and control and in this sense, Fluidmesh radios have been the ideal solution for over a decade when going Wireless.
