What is IP camera resolution?

IP camera resolution refers to the number of pixels that an IP camera can capture and transmit to a video recorder or a monitor. It is usually measured in megapixels (MP) and indicates the amount of detail that can be captured in an image. The higher the resolution, the more detailed the image will be. IP cameras are available in various resolutions, from low-resolution VGA (640x480) to high-resolution 4K (3840x2160) and beyond.

The resolution of an IP camera is an important factor to consider when choosing a camera, as it determines the level of detail that can be captured and can affect the overall quality of the video footage.

Resolution is a crucial component of any surveillance camera as it determines the camera's ability to capture and reproduce even the smallest details in the image. The resolution of an IP camera is measured by the total number of pixels in its matrix, both vertically and horizontally.

However, cameras with the same resolution may still produce images of varying quality due to other factors like color reproduction and the physical resolution of the matrix. To compare the quality of different matrices, the resolution is often measured in TVL (television lines), which indicates the number of visible lines in the picture.

For most video surveillance systems, a resolution of 400 TVL is sufficient, while a resolution of more than 500 TVL can capture even the smallest elements such as facial expressions or license plate numbers.
