CCTV with video compression format of H.264

The biggest benefit of using H.264

  1. Reduced storage cost is the biggest benefit.:
    • Compared to M-JPEG, H.264 takes just one-fifth of the bandwidth and storage to maintain the same quality image.
    • Compared to MPEG-4, H.264 takes only half of the bandwidth and storage for the same image quality. In most video surveillance projects, storage costs represent between 20 and 30 percent of the project.
  2. Increase the frame rate and image quality of the cameras you operate or do a mix of those four things.
  3. Improve your entire surveillance system for the same amount of money or get the same system as in the past for a 10 to 15 percent lower cost.
