Camera systems have been used in the manufacturing industry for years, helping facilities improve assembly and manufacturing lines, monitor site safety, and troubleshoot equipment and machinery. And while camera systems technology has taken massive steps forward in video quality and features, many sites are still using analog based video systems.

Here are 8 compelling reasons why now may be the perfect time for you to consider transitioning from analog video to HD:

1)  Image Quality - The number one thing that your video system does for you is display and capture video images. Higher quality HD images allow operators and management to make better, faster, more informed decisions. 

2) Simple, Cost Effective Migration from Analog to Digital - As many companies have existing analog video systems in place, manufacturers have created hardware solutions that allow users to make use of their current camera hardware, and start to make the transition to an IP based HD video system. Bottom line: you get maximum value on your initial analog camera investment, and full freedom and control over the digital HD migration path.

3) Ease of Installation - In the past, IP camera systems were more complex when it came to the installation. Nowadays, features such as plug-and-play camera recognition and remote camera zoom and focus, will save valuable time when setting up an IP based system.

4) Economical – While the actual 1:1 cost of analog systems is lower cost, an HD system often times is less expensive than analog. Because of the increase in camera resolution, often times you can actually reduce the amount of HD cameras, while still getting the same camera coverage.

5) Scalability – Analog based recording systems are limited to a finite number of inputs, typically 4, 8 or 16. Network based recording systems do not have this limitation, cameras can be added as long as there’s available bandwidth on the NVR and many recorders are able to expand well beyond the sizes of analog systems.

6) Reliability & durability – IP video surveillance systems have proven to be faster, more reliable and every bit as durable as older analog based cameras and recorder.

7) Manageability – IP based systems can be accessed and viewed from anywhere in the world through mobile apps and remote clouds.

8) Capabilities & Features – Video surveillance features are continuing to expand at a rapid pace. IP cameras can offer a range of functions from basic to advanced analytics in almost any way imaginable, allowing for automated rules and alerts that will return value in a way that analog video systems simply cannot do.
