0 minutes, 30 seconds Read
  • H.264: This is the most commonly used compression format for surveillance cameras due to its efficiency in compressing video while maintaining good image quality.
  • H.265: Also known as HEVC (High-Efficiency Video Coding), this compression format is a newer version of H.264 and provides better compression while maintaining high-quality video.
  • MJPEG: This compression format stands for Motion JPEG and is used primarily for high-resolution video surveillance cameras. It compresses each frame of the video individually, which results in large file sizes.
  • MPEG-4: This compression format is also used in spy cameras and offers a good balance between file size and image quality.
