“Opinion 1: Appearance and Material”

titathink appearance

Smooth appearance.
A high-quality network/ip camera must be made up of high-quality material. Mainly reflected in smooth appearance, it has no small outstanding particles, and it is very thick and has good thermal conductivity to ensure the stability of camera.

“Opinion 2: Resolution”

vga resolution
VGA The full name of VGA is Video Graphics Array, it is a technology about video encoding. Its horizontal pixels are 640, and vertical pixels are 480. So its resolution is 640x480p. VGA is a technology name only, But as time passes, people call VGA as the short name of 640x480P. So VGA means 640x480p, meanwhile it is a standard difinition, and its total pixels are 307,200.

720p resolution
720P 720P means 1280x720p, its horizontal pixels are 1280, and vertical pixels are 720, meanwhile it is a high difinition, and its total pixels are 921,600. 720P is superior to VGA, due to the image of 720p is larger, in this case, user can get more information from video.

1080p resolution
1080P 1080P means 1920x1080p, its horizontal pixels are 1920, and vertical pixels are 1080, meanwhile it is a full high difinition (FullHD), and its total pixels are 2,073,600. So far, 1080P is best resolution for IP camera, due to the image of 1080P is largest, in this case, user can get more information from video. But it will occupy more banwidth, Some poor quality of ip cameras might even block the network. From this point, user should use lower resolution ip camera without enough bandwidth.

“Opinion 3: Image Quality”
