Differences in Camera Resolutions

One of the most important aspects of a camera is the resolution it can offer. A camera's resolution is vital for providing usable images capable of identifying people and number plates. A long-standing advantage of using an IP camera over an analog camera has always been the ability to provide a much higher resolution than a typical analog camera. Although the gap is now being closed by HD analog solutions.

Resolution is measured in pixels and is often abbreviated to Megapixels or MP. One megapixel (1MP) is equivalent to one million pixels.

 

Below is a list of common camera resolutions and their respective pixel Width x Height measurements based on a Hikvision camera.

You may be familiar with certain resolutions as they are similar to your TV or PC monitors.
