Planning the bandwidth requirements of an IP video surveillance project is among the most critical design steps, similar in importance to placing the cameras. Without careful planning ahead of time, the surveillance system might end up with a bandwidth bottleneck.
This not only causes video packet loss, delay, or jitter but also degrades video quality, or even worse, inhibits recording of critical incidents. Bandwidth also determines the storage capacity requirements for a given retention period.
Understanding video bandwidth takes in-depth knowledge of several fields. This white paper is intended to provide a fundamental knowledge of what affects video surveillance performance. In general, there are six factors that influence an IP security camera’s bandwidth.
