Digital Video Primer: Best Practices to Optimize Bandwidth and Transmission

This FREE whitepaper from SSI will help you learn principles behind proper cabling uses, bit rate control fundamentals and more.

The previous two whitepapers in the Security Sales & Integration Expert Series (“Managing Video’s Voracious Appetite,” Parts 1 & 2) focused on the demands of efficiently and reliably storing vast amounts of video surveillance data. The increasing need to move this digital information from point to point has created many challenges that also cannot be overlooked.

The major factors of bandwidth in a networked video system are camera specifications, camera features, compression algorithms and transmission media. Fortunately, manufacturers are incorporating advanced capabilities into cameras to lessen the burden. The successful operation of any video surveillance system starts with the backbone and how well it can handle large quantities of data.

This article will delve into the cabling and other infrastructure that determines the amount of bandwidth a network can achieve, along with insights into different transmission methodologies.
