The shift towards IP-based video surveillance solutions has been going on since the first network camera was introduced in 1996. Despite the benefits of going IP, analog technology is still entrenched in some markets and segments.
The TV market is moving rapidly towards high-definition television, HDTV. This change brings truly remarkable improvements in image quality and color fidelity. HDTV provides up to five times higher resolution and twice the linear resolution compared with traditional, analog TV. Furthermore, HDTV comes with wide screen format and DVD-quality audio.
A day and night camera is designed to be used in outdoor installations or in indoor environments with poor lighting. A day and night, color network camera delivers color images during the day.

This white paper defines how human resources and security departments can print intelligent ID cards to identify employees, visitors and patrons, and manage access to facilities, equipment and services through a range of “intelligent” access card technologies. The paper also presents several real-world examples of how companies have benefited from access cards that contain multiple layers of security for protecting people, products and property.
Security is an important priority for organizations today more than ever. Having secure access control and identification technologies in place is essential to protecting people and assets.
A wide range of industries today are realizing the significant benefits that personalized access control, financial, retail and smart cards can bring to their enterprises. The rapid expansion of on-demand issuance of cards for identification, tracking and monetary applications calls for an innovative card- printing solution.
