Superb Image Quality
Fixed-position cameras produce incredibly high resolution images. These cameras are available in either 12MP (well over 4k resolution) or 5MP (twice the resolution of 1080p) . For a rock solid camera with crisp HD images, these cameras are unmatched.
Fixed-Position Vs. PTZ Cameras
Fixed-Position cameras have a number of advantages over Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) cameras:
- Much wider field-of-view
- Higher resolution images
- Camera will never move during security recording
- Less moving parts
5 Vs. 12 Megapixels
Your computer monitor can only display a certain number of pixels. A 1080p monitor, for instance, can display about 2 megapixels. So you may wonder why you’d ever need a webcam above 1080p resolution. The answer is digital zooming. A higher resolution camera image can be digitally zoomed (stretched) further.
5 Megapixels Sounds Small . . .
Don’t get caught up in the numbers game. A 5MP image is actually quite large! And remember, larger images take longer to download, so balance your resolution needs against how responsive you want your camera to perform.
