High-Resolution Mega-pixel Cameras are Not all Alike
How to tell the difference
by Bob

High resolution IP cameras provide mega-pixel resolution not available with analog cameras. This high resolution allows you to zoom in on portions of the video and still have enough resolution to identify a personís face or license plate number.  You can even zoom in on the stored video, providing a distinct advantage over manual PTZ cameras. Cameras are available with 5 or more mega-pixels of resolution.
But are all high resolution cameras equal?  It turns out there are a number of cameras that say they are high resolution, but donít actually provide the expected resolution at the computer display. Here are some of the things to be aware of when looking for a high resolution camera.
How Blu-ray Optical Discs Work
Why this could replace DVD discs
by Bob

The technology for storing data continues to bring us ever-increasing capacity. In 1997, DVD discs were introduced that provided 4.7GB of capacity. It replaced the older CD-ROM technology which only provided 640MB of capacity.  DVD also revolutionized the movie industry providing an inexpensive media for distributing commercial video and music.

The industry is now going through another revolution with the introduction of Blu-ray Discs (BD). This new technology affects not only the consumer video and audio industry, but also the computer industry. As a matter of fact, if Blu-ray becomes the standard in the consumer market, it will surely become the standard in the computer market as well.
