Pixels Per Dollar (Pp$): Rethinking The ROI Of Surveillance Cameras
Whether for home or business, most buyers make purchase decisions by comparing product costs. When considering surveillance cameras, the detail of the image, as measured in pixels, dictates whether one can read a license plate or recognize a face. Therefore, one of the most important criteria when evaluating the ROI of a camera is the number of pixels delivered per dollar spent (Pp$).
Megapixel cameras provide superior performance and imaging capabilities versus legacy analog technology and standard-definition IP cameras. To understand the real value of megapixel cameras, it’s important to evaluate the total system cost, not simply the price of a single camera. Analog and standard definition IP cameras may be priced less than megapixel cameras on a per-camera basis, but they deliver significantly less value when total system costs are evaluated. This white paper will analyze the additional value of megapixel cameras through a quantifiable measure of that value: pixels per dollar (Pp$).
